I am new to quads, so forgive me for these questions, but what battery do you use, and how long can you fly with it? will a KK controller be able to fly this frame , as i am looking at FPV too, and currently my quad will only fly for 8 minutes on a 4S 2200ma, so the motor efficency is quite crucial i guess?
In short....
I use 3S 2200mAh battery which gives me 12-15 min FPV flight time and 8-9min with GoPro onboard.
Without GoPro and FPV it can achieve even 18min.
Ofcourse with well balanced motors (I strongly suggest robbe roxxy or something better/more expensive) and props.

Every FC which can manage 6 motors will do the job.
But....look at this one:
This is my FC, and some of videos there were made by this hexacopter (scorpio frame + GoPro)
