Matek PDB-XT60 w/BEC (5V and 12V)
Matek PDB-XT60 w/BEC (5V and 12V) from Cyclone FPV
The PDB-XT60 has been engineered to provide the highest possible performance and reliability in a 36*50mm & 4 layers PCB. It distributes power from a LiPo pack to 6 ESCs, as well as providing synchronized & regulated DC 5V outputs & linear regulated DC 12V for powering Cameras, Servos, RC receiver, Flight Controllers, Video Transmitters, LEDs, etc.It offers a XT60 socket to connect the LiPo pack convenientlyGeneral:

I have not used it yet, but upon visual inspection, this device seems to fit the bill. It's form factor matches a typical F4 flight controller and can mount in a stack. It eliminates cable clutter by splitting the battery source into four outputs to provide power to ESCs. The solder pads are large and use lots of vias (9 each). The onboard 12V/5V regulators are also super handy as power sources for camera and receiver. Build quality seems very good. Can't wait to try it.
