Got the build finished finally! Had a mishap along the way thanks to grabbing the esc cable from the wrong flight controller. Noob mistake cost me a FC and 4-in-1. I managed to repair the flight controller by replacing the main MCU. Should be able maiden this week once the weather clears up.

The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..
