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?
