Almost ready to order parts for HEXAcopter build

Ok here are a couple setups. I am trying to decied on what to run. Any ideas?
This all these kits i will have an extra load of 320G max. These numbers do not include any landing gear or camera gimbal or mount.

My end goal will be to fly either a go pro hero 2 or a Sony Nex5x. The only fpv stuff i need is something to use so that i can see what the camera is looking at. I would use the Live video feed out on the Go pro but the Sony does not ahve that option. I have no need to fly really high or fly out of LOS. I would really like to stay around 15 min fly time if at all possible.

Frame: will be 300-500 grams.

Motor: rc timer 2836-9 880kv weigh is 70g each so 420g total
Model: BC2836-9
Motor size: Ф28*36mm
Shaft size: Ф4.0*49mm
Weight: 70g
KV(rpm/v): 880
Max Power: 243W
Battery: 2-4Li-Po
Test Prop: 12x6/9x6
Ri(M Ω): 0.107
ESC(A): 40A

ESC: Turnigy AE-30A Brushless ESC weight is ?g each so ?g total

Props: with this kit recomended by motor is 12x6 or 9x6 not sure what the slow fly would be

FC: NAZA with GPS 55G or APM1 max 45G

Batteries: depending on prop that has to be used either 4sp2 10000MAH 1112g or 3sp2 10000MAH 828g

This setup at a fly weight of 6LB flew 19 min using 300g frame using 10x3.8 SF APC props.

The frame that i found for this kit is 300G but limits me to a 11" prop. ONe i know what material the arms are made out of ( U channel i do believe) I can extend them as needed.

Frame: will be 300-500 grams.

Motor: 4215(3507) 650KV Multicopter Brushless Motor 73g each so 438g total.

This kit is not bad but i am limited to a 10" prop. Now will i ever need to go over that i ahve no clue. I know there is an extension floating around out there that i can buy to extend and make it a approx 650mm kit and allow me to run a max of a 12" prop.

Well these are the three that i am looking at with the input and help from others.
Price wise kits will run from approx 550 to 1000.

I am being told that i am running cheaper and probable more vibration motors by using RC timers but i would rather spend a little let now. Crash and learn to fly then upgrade to a really good motor in future. Unless that is that these motors work out fine for me?
