I had Xk x251. Today came MJX Bugs 6.

Xk x251 - faster, lighter, quiet, better indicative lighting, better transmitter x7

Bugs 6 - stability, easier start-up control, battery warning and connection, visually nicer and more robust

I'm still flying my X251. I had a long period with it sat on the shelf, but I'm enjoying flying it again. It offers a very pleasant FPV experience, even in auto-level mode.

I mentioned earlier that I was going to try to port Silverware over to the board to bring acro support to the quad. That's on the back-burner for now (lack of time), but in the meantime I'm planning on replacing the FC/receiver with these, if they will fit in the shell:

Micro 20x20mm Betaflight Omnibus STM32F4 F4 Brushless Flight Controller Integrated with BEC OSD (not the one I ordered actually, but the one I got was only €6, but it's not listed any more)
2.4G SP09X Micro DSM2/DSMX 3.3V-5V Satellite Receiver

I'll be using my Devo instead of the stock transmitter (I'm still using that for other stuff).

X251 was a good transition for me, stepping from Toy grade to scratchbuilt quad in one year's time.

Now flying LOS acro decently with Betaflight FC and Frsky TX.

Those should fit with room to spare. It even looks as though your USB port is on the top-left of the FC(if I'm interpreting the orientation correctly,) which makes installation easier(and safer.)

Great. I might try and squeeze in a little VTX too if there is room.
