Will's Nanoweights

Post by teamocean » Fri Oct 03, 2014 3:28 pm

Time for a thread for my new Nanoweights.

I've gone for a flipper and drum spinner for my first attempts. I am still waiting for the servos to arrive as I missed them today. However the chassis for both of them has been printed in advance

Also a video of the drum spinning on 1s.

I'm liking the drum spinner! I'm starting to feel horribly out gunned here :roll:

Should be just about fine on weight then. You're using a Lemon I'm guessing?

The drum spinner didn't really work out as there was too much weight in the drum and not enough over the wheels so it didn't drive too well. So I recycled the parts into a flipper which works very nicely. Weighs in at 21g

I've got parts for another which I'm still deciding what to do with
