Low-profile TP 3 build with Nameless RC AIO & DVR-VTX, Baby Ratel, Crossfire and Minimortal T.

Motors: Amax 1303 4800kv

Canopy based on the fantastic looking Babytooth Classic design by TIBDREN; modified for Baby Ratel. It now also works as front/back pressfit standoffs for the boards. Printed with Sainsmart TPU, 90% infill.

Be careful when mounting the Amax motors. The provided 4 mm screws are too short, 5 mm are too long. I ended up using the latter with thin m2 washers, now they sit perfectly flush.

Dry weight: 64g

I hate working on that micros with no space and tiny soldering pads, but the results are often quite pleasing. I hope you like it.

Thanks! The recording quality is quite good with the Baby Ratel. It's not looking blocky at all, but actual resolution is always limited to PAL/NTSC of course.

I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..

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..
