Just finished this build. It was very very tight and I really tried to fit a lot into it, even a Hellgatebuzzer between the stacks, the rather big Graupner HOTT GR12L SUMD and even a 4 LED strip on the back.Just finished this build.

It flies really well, the big motors (1407) rock. Minor yello that does not bother me, but what really annoyed me, I had huge noise in the FPV-feed, lines going zig zag when throttling up in the goggles. Figured it the VCC was not filtered, switching to 5V of the FC solved that.

If anything, I would blame the vtx with a tiny antenna next to the huge battery wires with xt60. Also, this eachine vtx had a lot of noise one time I have used it. I know it is popular and cheap but I am not a fan

VTX noise solved: the VCC of the FC is extremely dirty, switched to 5V and problem solved, even though would have preferred the VCC............let's see how she flies now with better vision. Sofar she flew extremely well. Video to follow.
