I want to try my hand at building a brushless motor. What would be a good starter kit. I don't want it to cost a lot, if it's a total failure.

GoBrushless.com > the $10 GBv kit. (http://www.gobrushless.com/shop/index.php?app=ccp0&ns=prodshow&ref=GBv)

They seem OOS at the moment. For about 2x the price the GBx has more room in the can so is easier to work with.

If you have an old shot CD style TowerPro, Emax, or Blue Wonder (open back, not glued together mess inside) they are all good candidates. Most use dLRK style winding pattern which is a bit harder than the ABC style of the GBv kits.
GoBrushless is a good place for wire.

I've built five of the Go Brushless motors. These motors work well, but I warn you, it's a lot of work.

Before you power up the motor with an ESC might be a good idea to run tests on that motor, just in case:

Take a look:
