Just run the IRC directly off the distribution board, it will handle 4s input. Do not run it off the 5v step down regulator. All you need to do with the 5v's is run one wire from the regulator. Take a center wire(red) from a spare connector, solder it to the 5v out and slide the other end into one of the esc's center slots. This gives you less wiring and a clean setup. The 5v regulator is already grounded so you don't need the extra ground wire, The naze is grounded through the esc connections, which are grounded to the PDB.

The IRC has a clean 5v out on the vtx that can power the camera directly. Don't power the camera from the PDB board.

The one pic shows the one red wire, coming from the pololu 5v out, slipped into esc #1 connector. The IRC power cable soldered directly to the PDB.
The other pic shows the 5v out for the camera. Just three wires directly to the vtx.
