It's a nice build, thanks for sharing. Are you looking to tidy up some of the wires?

I did spend a fair amount of time folding up the cables (ESCs and others are quite long) but if you have some suggestions I'd be happy to hear them.  Thanks.

I try to evenly distribute the cabling around the vacinity of the closest ESC cabling and zip tie around the slack loosly. I can see some of the tidying you've done thus far, I know it can be a little difficult with a smaller frame.

You can not get more flight time in this configuration. You can try to use a higher capacity battery (about 4-5 a/h), and the "C" parameter is not more than 20-25. Using high-quality propellers made of carbon fiber, you will achieve better performance. However, their use can lead to the failure of the camera stabilization. This can be eliminated by using softer rubber insert between the "F450" and "Zenmuze N3-4".
Try to make as short as possible wires from the battery to the ESC. This is not the best use. Reducing the voltage drop across these wires will improve model performance and reduce the magnetic field around GPS compass.
I wish you success!

Thanks vladimir57 for your feedback.  This F450 is my experimental copter so in the process of rebuilding it now.  I didn't like the weight distribution of the components (mainly the gimbal/camera) so creating a center mount configuration instead along with a few other modifications.  Will post pics when I'm done.
