Well as I myself would tell you.
1. Do a lot of reading about the gyrobee. I started reading all the back threads that people before me had wrote as they were building. LOTS OF INFORMATION
2. always ask question if your not sure.....
3. Make sure the material you buy is 6061-6T it has a stamp on it, if not I would question it..
4. before you buy your motor ask questions again.. What size your weight.
get ready for a long haul of building. I would say find some one that has a 2 place and go flying first to make sure this is what you want to do...
some one will add more!

Here is a free site! On the plans you will not get a few thing you will have to buy them.
1. Flight controls
2. Rotor head
I have had good luck from the company
Or you can try aircraft spruce

I'm not sure how cheap the parts will be after the shipping costs to India.

It is cheaper to buy the materials that you need and do the work yourself and it give you time to enjoy the work that goes into it. BUT (you have to be good using a drill press because of were the holes have to be drilled). It is not fun when you mess up a piece of alum that just cost you $75.00 bucks and now it is worth $2.50
If you want to buy the air frame look up Starbee for around 3,500.00 you can buy a frame that you done have to drill
