    Charbel my first (real) drone was the DJI Phantom 3 Standard. Many told me I made the wrong decision at the time, however it proved an excellent low cost entry. I still have it despite now advancing to the DJI P4 and then Inspire 1 Pro. It is also compatible with many flight applications to do basic mapping and 3D modeling etc such as Drone Deploy and Maps Made Easy etc

    I still enjoy flying it and use it regularly as a practice drone in atti mode to test my skills against the elements and maintaining orientation. It has been instrumental in maintaining and improving my flying skills at low cost risk should I make an error. So far so good an no crashes and this wonderful bird still flying and taking great pics.

    I still have a "need" to get a Yuneec Pro and dream of a Matrice 200 in my stable....can never have enough drones :)

    DJI Phantom 3, Phantom 4, Mavic, flight time about 28mins, but they are a littele expensive; Xiaomi mi drone 4K is a good choose, it is a new product and easy to control, but you should cost at least $500. Wingsland S6, a pocket drone, just the same size to iPhone 6S, it still need $350. It is hard to find a $200 drone.

    I started with a Snaptain S5C. Its easy to control especially for beginners, good camera, and the price tag is below $100. I think its one of the best drones below $100.
