I'm new to Eve and I need to know if this is an ok idea.

What I plan to do is train to fly a drake and build up capital with the intention of eventually switching to training for stealth bombers and joining a pvp corp.

What I need to know is there anything inherently flawed with this idea?
Will I be able to find a decent pvp/pve corp with a low sp char who is specialized in stealth bombers?
Any other advice is welcome as well.

Stealth bombers are a horrible way to start pvp for new players. Easy to get into, hard to master.

If you want to start pvp I'd suggest start with a rifter first and then take you path to an interceptor. This will teach you how to fly a ship and you will benefit from it during the rest of your eve-carreer.

Going for a drake then raven to make some isk is valid and you can pvp in a drake. Not the most interesting boat but you can tank it like a brick and be valuable to your gang even at low skillpoints. You don't however learn how to fly a ship in pvp if you stick to a drake but you do learn how to fly in gangs.

(edit)You can also go for a hurricane to do some pve in and the hurricane is a much more interesting pvp-boat then a drake though you might need a few more SP then a drake to be effective but not much.

Sorry, I should have elaborated more on my original post.

I don't necessarily plan to pvp with the drake just to do missions to build up isk. I also don't plan to jump strait into a stealth bomber either, I'm planning to use rocket kestrels to try and learn to pvp.

Reason for this is I want to try and fill a role in as short amount a time as possible and be at least decent in that one role before I train to something else.

Do you want advice or enforcement of your already made decision?

The only decision I would really like to stick to is missiles, because they fit into my longterm goal.

What I really want to know is what should I specialize in at low sps to be useful in pvp whether that is interceptors or something else.

Sorry, just starting to realize I really should have worded/thought out my first post more Sad
