Remember that people on the internet are more likely to post about issues than positive stuff about their gear.
I was looking to buy my instructor ros 125. Old engine, heavy but quite powerful...but i only found negative feedback on the internet about this engine reliability.Yet, a pilot who flies regularly with our group has had his ros 125 for nine years before it needed a rebuild.
So i bought the engine anyways, fixed what needed to be fixed and so far 25 hours without an engine out.(25 hours isn't much but still...)
My take on engines is: if you take care of them by using good oil, good gas and doing proper maintenance/checking fluid and carb mixture regularly, you should be alright.
Of course there are always duds sometimes
you definitely should start training before looking to buy gear. You are going to know better what you want and most schools will let you try different gear. first wing choice is very important because a bad wing choice can make training/flying very hard or uncomfortable.
main takeways are:
when trying a new frame make sure you practice leaning into the trust, the angle and thrust may not be the same as your used to
never stop running
be gentle on the toggles and isolate your hands from the rest of your body ( don't use them for balance)
