Inertia XT has its new stainless steel disc. However at 9g it puts it overweight so won't be in the comp but it's very fun to test :)

How many grams overweight is it Will? Wonder if you could use it in the cluster. Mine is only 22g, so there's 3g spare.

Thought I should post my latest line up of Nanoweights :)

Reducto has had one small change with a new custom mix on the TX- has a lot more speed now.

I have also finished 2 new ones- Pinchy and Lumos 2 both of which are very fun to drive :)

And some videos

Also decided to replace inertia XT with a new spinner which will form a cluster botlet with Inversion- it's only a basic test mockup at the moment as I'm going to print a proper chassis for it.

Thanks, the weight is still around 30g so I've given up making it into a proper nano- I'm currently printing the new chassis which will see it paired up with one of my ants (probably Inversion).

The disc actually packs a fair punch though and part of me is considering making another to use as a fleaweight cluster :)

I'm sure it's doable; If you can get the weight of the whole spinner mechanism (servo board, motor and blade) down to about 18-19 g then you could get it in the weight limit. Though having it as a flea weight cluster sounds more interesting; maybe just make some other 40g non spinner to go with it to make things a bit easier.

I still don't know how that disc is 12g... that's the same as the disk on HSOD! What did you make it out of, depleted uranium? :L

Don't suppose you want to bring mini red along too? Just done some mods to Haggis and it's loads better; want to try a rematch :P

Just realised that I haven't updated here for a while.

Here is my new nano- Flippy- weighs in at 24g and works very nicely. :)

This is how my team looks at the moment.

I've got a few more bits coming and I really need to get a spinner running again in this class!

Flippy, reducto, and lumos 2 are all looking rather similar :L Does flippy have a faster servo then?
