12A Afro ESC enough for 250 FPV Setup?

Hello Folks, Im new to the Quadcopter Scene.

I bought a Diatone #37 Frame with Glass Fiber and for Motors I selected RCX H1806-6 2400KV

These can be run at 4s I think, don't they?

Now I also ordered Hobbywing 18a ESC. These came out to be very big, I don't know where I should mount them to, and heavy they are...

The Frame alone with the Motors installed weighs 300g, then the esc which are too big anyways would give additional weight. It's overpowered anyways isn't it?
I want the setup to be able to run at 4s, if i later decide to fly more sporty. An FPV system will be installed and I am planing to install a Xiaomi YI Action Camera which I have bought. Do you actually know how I can mount the Camera which has a normal Camera 1/4 inch thread to the Diatone Frame Plate on the top?

If I want to power all these, is
this
or the cheaper Version enough or would you recomend on going with something like this?

thanks guys

12A ESCs on 1806 motors, 5inch props and 3S battery would be fine.
I run this on my 320Gram Minion220.

You really need to read many, many more threads and you will then find what people run. I have posted what combination and PIDs I run several times.

Thank you, but my question was more about what kind of ESC I do need that is both, light and small if i potentially want to run it on 4s...

What about this? 20A ESC
Has no BEC but it's light.
Additionally I would need this 3a BEC for the receiver, FPV gear and the Flip32 controller. Would this work out?

Go w the 12Amp Afro. More than enough for a 250 sized racer w FPV gear weight class and it will run on 4s. I would start off on 3s however, 4s can be a little crazy to fly if your not used to it and have dont have much experience
