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.

And I will get FrSky Taranis X9D Plus + FrSky X4RSB 3/16CH Telemetry Receiver Full Range RECIVER. with 5,8GHz TBS Triumph Antennen Set RHCP SMA . Frame Arris x220 carbon fiber. And Foxeer Predator Mini 1.8mm camera. Props - HQ 5x4x3. EMAX RS2205-S 2600kv motors, TATTU R-Line 1550mAh 4s 95c Lipo Battery, Fatshark HD3. Maybe I will get some buzzer and lights. Any sugestions ?

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 ?
Put it on a scale lol but arris website has the 250v2 at 142g and the 220 at 125, they have a picture of just the frame on a scale

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)
