Could I put it in hot water so it's easier to fold?

You can bend 1-2mm cold by hand.

1.5mm is best for chassis; 1mm is too flexible, and 2mm is a real pain to work with as it's very tough to bend.

God I'm nervous there's so many delays in building and testing I know it's only an ant but I'm a total moron with no experience I'm also scared cause the charger hasn't arrived and I haven't even ordered the transmitter.

Well ok a bit of a controversial move but Totanomyrma might now be a 2 wheel block that's 1 cm tall armed with 2 screws as spikes it won't exactly be amazing but I might change it after a few test runs and competitions what do you think?

Just build something, it'll be a lot easier to do things once you're over the initial hurdle :)
