5" for the back. The front can handle 6", as long as your motors can handle them.

My mini is back with Luis right now having some work done so I can't measure the physical size of the mount hole, but I think those measurements are somewhere in this thread. From a weight standpoint, it's designed for something in the 10-15 gram range. I believe Eric designed the prototype with HobbyKing 10 gram motors. I used iPower 1811-13 (2000kv, 10gram) motors from gothelirc (mainly because I didn't want to wait 3 weeks for a HK order to arrive). I can't recommend them at this time though, as I had serious power (or lack thereof) issues with them. That's the main reason it's back with Luis, he's trying some different motors on it for me.

I'd be interested in that mix when you get it figured out. I've got a CC3D sittign here and a V400 frame on the way.

Just to clarify that, it's the 2000kv iPower motors I can't recommend. I recommend gothelirc in general very highly.

Yes, that was in response to tech69x's question about the mini. I run that one with a MultiWii.

I've since switched to 2830-1290kv motors using the 10x5 props on my 500mm hunter. A lot more power than my 2830-920kv and you get hover at exactly 50% throttle.
