General Robotics made a single 8" RX02-compatible floppy in a box barely bigger
than the drive itself, complete with carrying handle. A company I once worked
for had one for field servoids. AFAIR it was a standard SA800 50-pin interface
to connect to their own dual-height RXV controller.

I've got an 11/03 (M7270) with MXV11-A and a Baydel dual-height F311 (like an
RXV11, but interfaces to SA800 drives) with a 4-slot dual-width (not quad)
backplane. It's missing box/PSU and floppy, though, so it's not terribly
functional ATM. I'm sure someone has built something even smaller with a
Falcon or similar.
