Custom 3D Printed "Rattler" 20x20 to AIO Board Mount Adapter

Looking to "lighten your load" by using an all-in-one board (AIO) on your Rattler frame instead of a separate flight controller and ESC?

This 20x20 to AIO board mount adapter allows you to use a 26.5x26.5 AIO board (like the BetaFPV 20A AIO V3) and cut your weight

Adapter mounts to frame using the 20x20 pattern while the 26.5x26.5 "floats" above the base plate (talk about soft-mounting your FC!)

RATTLER PILOTS' WALL OF FAME!

Rattler & DJI Caddx Vista by David Heinmiller  

I love this frame! The adjustable holes allowed me to place the stack and Caddx exactly where I wanted them! Also the ability to adjust for small or large stacks by simply using different standoffs will help in future builds. I like that the camera mount is tight and does not move. I have over 16 hours flight time with it and love it! It has survived four hard crashes including a head on tree collision with damage only to the props - no damage to the frame or electronics. Nice work TMac! Thanks, Dave
