Quanum Trifecta Frame help

Hello, I was planning on buying a Trifecta frame from HobbyKing, and was wondering on which would be an ideal setup.
I had this setup in mind:
Multistar 2209 980 V2 motors (x3)
Afro 12A ESC (x3)
Carbon 8055 props
Naze32

Battery? I had some issues on the battery. Right now I have some 1500mah and some 2200mah, but I don't know if I should get a 1800mah.

I intend to use a GoPro with this setup, no FPV or anything fancy. Looking for some long flight times, maybe above 10 mins? No aggressive flying either. Any suggestions?

Any help is greatly appreciated

I have the trifecta and I really like it. I fly
"baby beast" 2206 motors
Afro 12 A esc
6045 plastic props
Naze 32
3S 1500 mah battery

I pretty much exclusively fly it FPV with a board cam. I occasionally put a gopro on it but to be honest I have a hard time getting really nice video out of this frame. I really prefer a bigger tricopter for shooting smooth video.

One piece of advice if you go with the trifecta. Either buy a few of the recommended servos or look at a "true" all metal gear option. The "all metal" servo they suggest still has a plastic gear in it. I am on my third servo.

I don't really expect to have professional grade video, I am just after this frame because its portable and compact. How does the multirotor handle with the gopro? Do you have to move the battery back a great deal? And what are the flight times?
It flies fine with the gopro, not as snappy but it is not that underpowered. I get about 6 minutes flight time with the 1500 mAh battery. Another thing to look at is some extended landing gear if you dont like landing on your battery. I just 3d printed some off thingiverse. If you are going for portable it is really nice, also seems to be pretty durable (minus the servo) I fly down low through trees and often hitting the ground. Only damage so far has been the servo.

I am about to try it myself. That is the one that was recommended to me. Changing out the servo is sort of a pain, you basically have to take the whole thing apart in order to get the servo wire threaded through the frame.
