Cheers Joey.
The axle on the far side is an M2 countersunk screw attached through the servo casing,then through a small fibreglass plate,to stop it from distorting too much.Its alot more rugged than Bruces old one,which was a screw superglued onto the outside of the servo case!

I found a supplier for the battery here...

But they are out of stock!!!! :-?
Bloomin typical! :(

It is hard to see, if you don't know where to look :P

looks good Jim, although I do think those arms will break before the polycarb does! looking forward to seeing and fighting it (having ordered lots of parts to build a new flea myself, can't resist the urge hehe...)

for all who can't see it its on the front of the flipper at the bottom. it's been roughed up so it looks white (therefore camouflaged)
