California Quads FB-01 Tekko32 XSRF4O dRonin AutoTune.

Since the XSRF4O does not have a BEC, both the FPV camera and the FC are powered from the the VTX's 5V@1A SBEC. This could be improved with powering the FPV camera from Vbat. There may be enough 5V juice left over to add some LEDs.

For an even cleaner build, the Matek VTX is mounted into the rear standoffs. The wiring mess went between the ESC and FC. Both the 4in1 ESC and the FC are softmounted using 2.5mm O-rings on 24mm long M3 bolts which reach to just under the top plate. The XSRF40 has M4 openings for complete vibration isolation from the mounting bolts using silicon M4-to-M3 inserts.

you know you can put the battery sideways, and then run the gopro on top of the tpu pod, right?

The iFlight XL5 V3 is a fantastic freestyle frame for the price. It features chamfered edges on some very nice quality carbon fiber. My goal for this build was to use high quality components at a relatively low price. Not only that, but I managed to reduce the number of solder points to the bare minimum. I've never built such a plug-in-play quad! The flight controller has an integrated VTX and doesn't..

Update! Happymodel has released a new V2 Frame which uses a more durable plastic. The Happymodel Mobula7 is one of those rare treats to hit the micro scene. Countless models hit the market every month, but this one just happens to check all the boxes. It's a 2S brushless micro with a 75mm motor stance. It's slightly larger than the more traditional 65mm brushed micros, but it's still quite small...
