This frame is really fun. I get 4-5 min flight time with 450mah 3s (long type). Highly recommend! It's a little heavier than your average toothpick (126g) but it flies amazingly well. These Rcinpower 1204 motors are great and very efficient Haven't tried any other props yet, these Gemfan 3016 are awesome and I haven't had to replace them yet. I may try some 3028 once I bust this set.

Here is some DVR! I'm not the best pilot, but some people asked for it so here you go:

Until recently GoPros were delegated to larger quads. A typical GoPro weighs around 125g and we've only recently begun to mount them on 3" cinewhoops. Even that is a stress on the motors. Now we've got the "GoPro Lite". Remove the battery, displays and casing and you're left with a small, lightweight board and sensor. Wrap it in protective TPU casing and you've got a 30g micro GoPro.

I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..
