My FPV Quad Parts and Help

I have gathered a list of all of my quad parts. It would really help me out if someone could look over the parts list to make sure this is EVERYTHING I will need in the correct quantity. If anyone has any experience with any of these parts, or any recommendations that would be great (I am trying to stay under 700)(I also already have a go pro and monitor)Thanks!

A couple of other questions: - Do I need only one UBEC for my OSD, Flight controller, and Gimbal? Do I need 3?
Is my transmitter good enough (seems too cheap?)
Do I need the spacers (or in that size)
Will the flight controller tell the motors to spin opposite directions or do I need to buy two of each like props.

I have one answer for you sorry I couldn't help with more. Yes you will need to by both clockwise and counterclockwise spinning props. Motors will spin the way they are wired. And to change the orientation of them just swap two of the three wires coming off the esc's

That radio is cheap. Get this:

It's only $69, has a full gui for adjusting things, it will keep you satisfied for a long while as-is, you can upgrade if you want telemetry or LRS down the line, you can even flash it with custom firmware for more flexibility. Plus the one you linked to is on backorder anyways.

You do see that your eCalc setup says you're going to have a hover time of just 5.1 minutes? My two quads do 2 times and 3 times that, and I still feel it's too short. You might want to see if you can lighten it up a bit.

I second the turnigy 9x. Its a great transmitter. I don't think I'll need to upgrade for a while. All the bells and whistles I need for now. I'm only going to be flying quads and wings, so this transmitter is great for my applications.
