I've got plenty, but thanks for the offer Haz. I needed something thinner than the 2mm but also a lot stiffer than HDPE, hence the circuit board.

hey, need some more lightening advice
my spinner (not the drum one) is a bit too heavy, its 72g withought armour, and i need armour :-?
parts im using are:
2 50:1 motors with tiny wheels (wheels are 1g each)
2 small servo boards, with resistors fitted
12g outrunner with a 10g disc
5g dsm2 rx with esc's soldered directly to it(badly :roll: )
180mah 7.4v lipo
1mm polycarbonate
1 hobbywing 10a esc


i think the obvious solution is to get a smaller batter, but is their anything else?

Can you not armour it in three grams? Just do the necessary bits. You can get a fair bit into 3g if done right. That, or drill a pretty symmetrical pattern into your disc.

Ah, if you're planning for it to fight ants too, then maybe. Or you could just avoid if you're drawn up against a spinner. Run away, or even drive off if it gets a bit hairy. Mind you, plenty of spinners don't really have "armour" as such. Divinity and Fleabite seem to do ok without.

BTW Haz, you need to sign up your fleaweights for the FWS seperate from your cluster, if you're putting them in.
