Best reliable frame for first drone?

Hi Ardupilots!

I am on a team working on making our very first drone! Woohoo! We’ve got a plan for our on board computer, and our flight controller, all that’s left is the frame, motors, and wires. Internet search has been a little hectic, and we’re having trouble judging the reliability of different sites, and I have come here to ask for the expert opinion for the most reliable frame. We’re looking to make a mid-sized drone, maybe 1-2 square feet, and it needs to be able to hold at least a pound. Additionally we are looking to get this drone as quickly as possible, and as such would prefer a non-China source purely for shipping time reasons.

Thanks for your input, let us know what is legit!

UPDATE: We found a kit!
