Fleas aren't normally my cup of tea but I thought I'd give one a go and see what happened...

This is Catch Me if you Can:

It weighs almost exactly 75g which is suprising what with my obsession with 1mm aluminium. It has a lifter/flipper powered by a small zebra servo and is much too fast for its own good. Here's a size comparison:

Also, I'd quite like to enter him in a cluster bot for SAC, anyone willing to make up the second half?

Before you criticize another person, first walk a mile in their shoes. Then, when you critisize them, you'll be a mile away and have their shoes.

Great, whichever you want although the drum spinner sounds fun. :)

Spent a bit of time today sorting out the fleaweights- have enough for 3 now. Slightly different to what I had planned for the AWS but it saves me having to buy loads of new bits

Inertia XS is pretty much ready to run with the addition of a new scoop as I broke the original front- needs a little tweaking to get it perfect though

In the middle is what will become Velocity- needs a flipper servo but I have to order a couple of bits next week so will pick one up then. It is looking like this will become an flea version of Quake.

The one on the right currently has no name- found the printed shell in a box and with the parts that are now available I managed to get everything to fit this time- weighs in at 66g so plenty of weight left for improvements.

Since I'm waiting on a few bits to arrive I spent some time today sorting out Inertia XS to get it to drive and spin properly.

Happy with the way it runs now and the new scoop is proving to be very effective

Found some (sort of) working ancient modified SD200s so I have thrown together a truly terrible fleaweight for the AWS.

A mere 2 years after all the parts arrived, I've finally finished Cyklos...

All in at 73.0g, so might even get some armour on it. Slight problem though, I don't know how to turn the brake off the ESC, so every time I throttle down quickly, this happens....
