I've ordered some for a little project I'm working on. I'll let you if if they're any good. I'm sure on these forums have already tried them though.

Hey guys.

I've been rebuilding Little Devil properly and I've managed to install the servo and compact it all, and it comes to 75g...without the flipper :P I have to lose about 10g to get the flipper on (made from CF, muchos Gracias to Josh for that). I think I can do it, may involve a lot of holes, and I'm hoping 1mm circuit board weighs less than 2mm HDPE does :P.

On the plus side, I finally got LD to self right for the first time since I got it :P

I think the circuit board will be roughly half the weight of the hdpe, I imagine they are about the same density

I've got plenty, but thanks for the offer Haz. I needed something thinner than the 2mm but also a lot stiffer than HDPE, hence the circuit board.

hey, need some more lightening advice
my spinner (not the drum one) is a bit too heavy, its 72g withought armour, and i need armour :-?
parts im using are:
2 50:1 motors with tiny wheels (wheels are 1g each)
2 small servo boards, with resistors fitted
12g outrunner with a 10g disc
5g dsm2 rx with esc's soldered directly to it(badly :roll: )
180mah 7.4v lipo
1mm polycarbonate
1 hobbywing 10a esc


i think the obvious solution is to get a smaller batter, but is their anything else?
