Can anyone help out here pls?

Hi guys, wonder if you can help please?
I've been approached by a friend to develop an aerial photography platform.
initially they wanted to use an RC heli but after seeing my Quad-copterI could convince the guys to rather use a quad...
I was asked to buil one, the firm wants to use a go-pro camera and will need FPV...
My issue is the sizes?
I will most probably have a payload if 1500g maybe 2kg total weight?!?
The quad / hex copter will mostly be flown on the highveld about 1500m ASL

I was thinking af a Spectrum 9x with Fat-shark FPV (head tracker gimbal)
KK2 seems to be easy to set up and run (they are not technical guys at all, so no programming)
But the questions;
Frame size?
Motor and prop size? with match ESC
Battery size maybe 3300mAh?
Can I hack the Go-pro to be used as the FPV? Maybe the PZ0045 camera will be as good a video?
Quad or Hex copter?
My logics say the bigger and stronger the better but I want to stay below R10k
so maybe not bigger but smarter...
Hope to hear from you all soon.

Don't screw around if its for business. Get a flame wheel F550 and a naza with a futaba 8J. Get a GPS for the naza at a later stage.

There's an AV out on all the gopros that can stream directly to your video transmitter so you can record hd and fly FPV.
We sell all kinds of stuff, including multi-rotor UAV/Drones :ugeek:
