I like the name Reducto so thats the black flipper sorted. However I once again got a little carried away so here is Lumos!

Its a pair of speed hacked and heavily cut down SG50 servos and its incredibly quick but the most powerful of my 3 nanos drive wise.

Inertia XT still needs a bit of armour and a nastier disc but thats all planned :)

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 :)

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.
