Use this frame in 1.5mm or 2mm with the 1S 3” drivetrain for a super fun and safe 45-55g AUW quad that will knock your socks off! The same pattern is offered in 3mm for the 3S drivetrain if you prefer a unibody over the TP3. It’s impressively stiff and confidence inspiring in 3mm and only 8.8g. You should be aware that the 1.5mm version is not as strong as the 2mm version but it is about 1.3g lighter.
This design is called the ‘Baby Tooth’ not because it’s smaller than the TP3, but because it supports 1S better and is simpler than the TP3. After some heavy refinement, this is the final pattern we landed on.
This frame is cut from T700 carbon but It does not have a chamfer on it. This frame is supposed to be a high value item with the majority of the design time invested into optimizing performance, weight and durability. Customizing the frame with your own hand done sanding on the edges is up to you.
The latest version seen in the product pictures has thicker arm ends for more motor protection and a cross bar on one of the arms designed to mount the MiniMortal T antenna. The overall frame design has also had minor adjustments to it's lines to improve durability further.

I have followed the development of the TP3 and the Babytooth throughout the video posts of Kabab. The more I have seen about it the more I have wanted to build one.
I am located in Sweden, so the shipping is not funny, but I was dedicated. I have managed to get frame and motors in one batch and canopy and props in another. In the end I have waited until the first batch of the Zeez 1S AIO board has emerged and have purchased a "naked" variant immediately.
The batteries were a different challenge, I wanted to get something from Europe possibly to get shorter shipping time. In the end just managed to snatch some from the UK just before Brexit came reality.
The build was a nice project, I have just received an STM32-driven soldering station with good temperature control, so it went fairly well. I have added an XM+ FrSky receiver and a RunCam Nano3. Unfortunately I managed to get the "new" lens, which is much worse and to add insult to injury the FPV Cycle ANT camera just came out afterwards.... :-)
The build has XT30, I have purchased 10 pieces of GNB 520 mAh batteries (unfortunately they HV, but I only charge them to 4,2V), cut off the PH2 connectors and attached XT30 instead.
AUW is exactly 60 g, which is probably a rather "heavy" build in BabyTooth terms, but I am loving it. My lightest quad is approximately 200 grams, so 60 g is like a bliss.
Love the lack of noise, love the effortless "glide" of the quad, love the performance in climb, love the flight time, love the low risk of flying. The motors look lovely, the props are just amazing. The frame is perfect, the size is perfect.
I have constructed a serial charging "board" out of an IKEA foodbox, I can series charge either 4 or 5 batteries and even storage charge them.
I am a rubbish pilot, but this quad gives me the possibility to learn a lot outside the simulator world and enjoy flying without the fearsome consequences of crashing. I am running Velocidrone and try to practice.
The maiden has confirmed my previous ideas of the BabyTooth. Extreme fun in a friendly package.
Later on I have started to challenge my skills. Probably in terms of the capabilities of the BabyTooth platform I am scraping the 5% level so far, but even my low level of flying gives plenty of joy.

I will practice more and my next purchase will probably be the TP3. That must be a rocketship. I need to learn fly much better for that one....
I built this with 1103 11000kv a bold clash f3 fc and this thing is so quiet you smooth flier. I recommend if you have whoop laying around I would take that built and put it on this frame. You won’t regret it.

Loving my Budget Build, Covid lock down, Back yard-flying 1s 3” Baby Tooth1.5mm frame.Surprisingly, I haven’t broken the 1.5mm frame......YET.... Not from “lack of trying!” I’m Using (cheap-clearance) 1103 16000kv mtr , cheap Jhemchu Play 4 AIO WHOOP board(only 5amp-esc) and AIO vtx whoop Cam(Push/button OG) Funny how quiet.... very flyable and nimble on bi-blade 3”.... sometimes it’s fun to run 65mm. To me I like floaty light/light pitch 3” 3 blade props, AKA “stealth mode”. Fly’s like you’re a tiny bird or insect. Any peeps that’s ever “happened by” thought the same. Need to build a top notch version ASAP. 👍👍👍👍
The BabyTooth frame is excellent for 1s/2s builds!
