The PilotTrak Mini is a Micro FPV tank, originally designed for running a leader wire or pullstring through tight areas while installing network cable.
In comparison to the full size PilotTrak, the Mini has a shorter wheelbase, and removes the camera-tilt servo. The entire tub chassis is 3D printed, along with the tracks, which are designed to print in TPU. The lower chassis houses dual N20 gear-motors to power the tracks, along with ESC and Receiver. The upper chassis has the option to add 3mm LEDs for headlights.
Some parts are print-to-order – Please allow a few days for shipping
All parts are designed for printing with a 0.4mm nozzle and are tested to slice in Cura.
If using Slic3r, use “detect thin walls” in the print settings, layers and perimeters, Quality for tracks.

A lot of time and effort goes into these designs, and funding greatly helps to improve future products. Tips / Donations for STL downloads are appreciated.
