Hi all,

I am a new drone pilot.  After purchasing my first drone (x13 Storm), I have become hooked on drones.  So far, I have advanced my manual piloting skills using a controller where the left stick controls altitude and turning and the right stick for leaning front, right, back and left.

I'd like to continue with manual controls, as my fun comes from piloting the drone manually.  However, I would like to advance to a bigger/longer flying drone, perhaps with a camera.

Would anyone here have any suggestions for someone starting out?  I'd like to stay under or close to $300 and do not mind building from a Kit if needed.  My current flight time on a fully charged battery is about 7 minutes.  I'd like to extend this to 15 if possible.  Light winds are also an issue with this small thing.

Thanks for your reply.  I didn't imagine it would take over a year for someone to comment on this discussion.
