I think they're 13mm aluminum square tubing. If I ever find carbon fiber square tubing, I'll buy up a heap of it.

On the buzzer, I do indeed use a dedicated LVA. But it plugs into the balance tap of the battery. My goal by using the FC buzzer was to have a 1 plug affair. Plugging in the main battery would power the quad, the video, and the LVA.

I think my LVA is rated 1s, so it just checks a single cell. If I use a 3s LVA, I might be able to tap it into the distribution board, and get my 1 plug goal.

But ultimately, I need volts on a OSD, as one of these days I'll figure out the range issue on my FPV setup and fly at greater distances.
