Regards,
Tnx
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: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1514544
This is my FC, and some of videos there were made by this hexacopter (scorpio frame + GoPro)
