    Sorry, I don't know anything about GPS.

    I don't know what this means. The Kakute comes with a barometer which will tell you altitude. You'll need to add a unit for GPS, otherwise this board has it all

    I've never used a GPS unit. Some bind to your phone I know, but zero experience. Don't even worry about that yet, you need to learn how to fly first! It'll be a month at least before you can fly that quad far enough away from yourself to lose it :)

    Nope, for that you need a barometer. That puts you back at the kakute f7...

    You could fly the 2200 probably, but that's the absolute biggest for you, and I would recommend something smaller. 1500 to 1800 mah will work better, you should still get 10 minutes plus easily if you're going easy on the punchouts. You're already very underpowered on your motors... That 4000...

    The D stands for "Diversity" which actually means it has two antennas. (notice yours only has one) It will switch to whichever antenna is getting the best reception. Yes, you also want to record your sessions in goggle. It helps locate your quad when you crash it by reviewing the footage...

    This is another good choice, but as it stands it doesn't bind in D8, only D16. Not a huge deal for you, but it changes what you can use for receivers. Still good. Honestly this is what I would have recommended, but it's still new and I'm waiting to see how the quality turns out.

    Okay, this is what I was looking for. This Flight Controller has all the pads you need for power distribution to the ESCs, so you won't need a separate PDB https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32868141093.html?storeId=3487007&spm=2114.12010615.8148356.12.77176cccL9eGu8 I think this is the cheapest...

    To be fair, I got into this from DJI drones, and I've worked as a photographer for 15 years, so when I don't like the video it's because I have high standards. It's true that the quality is worse in the goggles, but if you've lost picture you've lost your drone so you have bigger things to...

    I need to add, I'm no quad god. I've built a 6 inch i had some trouble tuning, but you're going such low kv that it could work in your favor.
