Just out of curiosity, I'm about to build one of these with the bardwell fc esc combo, and was wondering how you aligned your ESC, and how you fastened your xt60 lead? I cant quite see from the pics.
Sorry if these seem like stupid questions, but this is my first build. cheers.

the esc alignmment does not really matter as long as the chord from the FC to the ESC still reaches and all the motors can be nice and snug. The flight controller seems to be aligned with the XT60 on the side. You can change the orientation of the FC in betaflight pretty easily. You dont really need to secure the XT60 just make sure your battery wont fly off and you shouldnt have any issues.

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...
