Its a pretty straightforward process :) when you remove the board from the servo you remove the potentiometer and replace it with fixed resistors (normally 2.2k) and then wire it up as usual

After a bit of thought I finally decided that I need another nano spinner so I have rebuilt Inertia XT :)

It now has proper gearmotors for drive and a deltang rx to get the size and weight down. With the old disc it weighs in around 30g but I have just ordered a new single tooth blade which should come in at half the weight and bring it back under the limit while hopefully still packing a similar punch as this one as it currently spins and hits very well- it has been sending my other nanos from one side of the room to the other :P

ust realised that I haven't updated this for a while. Will give a full update of my new nanos tomorrow but my latest one works very well.

Given the new 60mm cube I have been able to rebuild Inertia XT properly. It has the new nanobox gearmotors fitted into a new chassis and the end result is pretty good. The disc is capable of throwing another nano up to a couple of meters away so it should be fun in competition :) and it only weighs 24g :)

I also have the new Inversion XT and Reducto 2 which I'll get some photos of tomorrow.
