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.
