looks really well constructed and takes care of a few issues indeed well done.

The only definite must-do changes I would highly recommend are:

1/ add a second spar for the wing. The spar system in these birds is definitely inadequate once you add any FPV weight! I mean this in all seriousness

2/ angle your FPV camera so it is looking down by about 10-15 degrees. This goes for any FPV plane - otherwise you are looking at sky too much and can't navigate very well without diving. Also less interesting view to enjoy.

Did you upgrade the motor and prop yet? The oem power can be a little weak, but still do-able.

It's a great FPV platform. Mine gets used more than any plane I own, and is still in pristine shape because it is so reliable and easy to live with.
