Wanted to try the Babytooth frame as a top mounted 65mm/2.5" prop frame.
Build was tight but manageable. Only thing I had to do was to rotate the FC 90deg due to cable management(especially from camera to the pads)
Build came out pretty clean, I especially like race antenna mount that came with the frame.
What I havent figured out yet is the best way to manage the lipo cables in the back.

For now I'm flying it 2S, which seems plenty for freestyle sessions.
It does feel slightly different to my other toothpicks. Don't know it it's really the top mounted battery and COG or the camera position.
Anyway I'm liking it!

Weight: 58g dry, 77g with 350mAh 2S

What is this voodoo top plate mounting hardware you got goin' here!?! Do you just not have the big threaded washer lookin' thingies on it, or do you have some kind of press nut/screw thru it all coming up from the bottom jazz happnin'?

they are press nuts, but I mounted the plate upside down to get a bit more clearance. below that are just regular metal spacers. since the whole thing is so light, so far the press nuts have stayed in without any problem.

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays.
