Here is my first 6" build...and I'm quite excited with!!! I use the chameleon Ti frame and hypetrain #Ummagawd 2150 Kv motors. I plan to fly it in lipo 5S. The frame is hydrodipped and coated with professionnal 2K coating for maximum durability.
The heliospring FC is just amazing!!! very difficult to have propwash...even with stock PID !!

The ESC are really great, and DSHOT1200 is very nice: follow the Oscar Liang settings and you will really flight in butter! https://oscarliang.com/best-blheli-32-settings/

I've loved this build since you first posted! Is it still holding up? You should know, this is the build that inspired me to do my sand and sky build. I spent over a year on it - not really on purpose, but I ordered the skin a year ago and then waited till black friday to get the actual parts. https://rotorbuilds.com/build/21227

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. 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..

Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
