Kakute F4 V2 Flight Controller. I will change the frame to ARRIS x220 carbon fiber. Its lighter wit more than 70 grams than the c250. And I find camera that I like how it performs but I dont know it will fit in the frame. I chose Foxeer Predator Mini 1.8mm . What do you think ?

Looks like a good setup. Don't forget a PDB (Power Distribution Board), FrSky compatible RC receiver, FC (Flight Controller), and VTX (Video Transmitter - for your FPV camera). Oh, and of course - Props.

Unfortunately I don't, but the 250 is pretty light, I'll put it on a scale eventually
It says on hobby wing that the c250 its 135.7 grams. But the Arris x220 on amazon it says that is 96grams and on hobby wing says 125 grams. I am confused. How can I check the exact weight ?

Nothing that I can think of, maybe a crossfire for even longer range but not required lol. I love those hq props minimal ocilatons, and can be bent back to shape really easy (especially with a little heat applied)

Banggood is having a sale on boards right now, just bought one two days ago. Arris is by fast the best priced batteries (at least with the 1500s)
