I would buy a more up to date F4 based flight controller. All those old boards limit what you can run and are not supported by newer versions of Betaflight etc. F4 boards are cheap too.
If you get a board like the Matek F4 All In One it will eliminate the need for a PDB and Matek have easy to follow wiring diagrams, I did two for my first quad builds, both flew great and took only 3 day’s or so to work out.
A “smoke stopper” would be well worth making as well, I use mine all the time, it will save components in planes and quads from getting cooked.
