It's easy to design a balanced disc, and Haz is very well practised at it, so no worries there!

With everything it's going to be abt 4.8 inches long and 3.9999999999999999999999999999999999 wide and everything is so cramped there won't be a single wire that doesn't need shortening and a back piece with the weight of 5 grams has been formulated,so happy happy engineering, will post a pic of the chassis later if I get round to it. Added bonus of you can guess what the 5g cover is made from

Paper? I've found that graph paper makes most resistant armour. :D Class Act was literally made of laminated graph paper only!

I would love to say yes but it unfortunately isn't, but it is nearly as common, I think said mystery material makes up by having a slight elasticity

My Rory has arrived, my main chassis is bent, my only other main piece is cut and bent so only got to now to screw it together and attach everything but I happen to lack all the little things from 3mm bolts to motor + disc connection and only a million wire shortenings and solder joints! All in about my 3 or 4 free weekends before April as well! Pictures will come soon if I can get it to work

Can I just say Ofsted is a brilliant name, and any future spinner of mine will be called that.

Sure fine, and thanks
but be prepared for a whole host of school related names coming in years to come which may or may not murder ofsted with glee, such as my next robot which will probably be called the gove grove

Great progress is happening and I can't get pictures to work but once it starts spinning I'll upload a video however I do have 1 important question:
The spinner is auto set to the second joystick but the up down throttle is not spring loaded so I was wondering if there is a way to swap it so it powers up on the horizontal axis of the same joystick without modding the controller?
