It seems it would be getting 2 sources of power then?
I wouldn't power the board with the FTDI and battery.
I have it set up so the board will get power through one of the esc. I have cut the red wire or positive from the other three esc.
With the board off of the multirotor I just power it off of the FTDI. no problems as of yet. the FTDI also powers the receiver through the throttle cable. while on the FTDI and while powered through the esc.
