I love the build! Great choices to keep weight down, and thrust waaaay up. I worry that you are going to have a bad experience when you crash (no offense, we all crash). Boards held together with solder pins break/short out in crashes. Your vtx and reciever can be bolstered with a piece of foam/double stick tape and be good to go. The pin set between the FC and the 4n1 esc is just doomed to die one day, that's just the nature of that configuration. The only way to prevent it is to not crash hard. If you plan to fly daily and/or aggresivly, I would just go ahead and order the replacements for the FC and 4n1 esc now, so when it happens you don't have to stress.

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
