As a beginer to robotics, I suggest you start with the basics before you attack complex issues such as flight.  Have you built the $50 robot yet?  If not, I suggest you start there.  You might also want to buy Wowee's Dragonfly (available here and at other places http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2585632&cp&cid=) to see how it was designed.

Noob huh... maybe you really want a challenge that is why you like to create this one..

trivia from wow wee :

Jeff:How long did it take to move it from inception to final production?

Sean(Wow Wee team member): The first RC dragonflies I had built were completed around mid 2003, but the direct ancestor of the Dragonfly was built in January 2006, and production began a little less than one year later, on December 22nd, 2006.
