That is a suitably silly disk, what Speedo are you using?

I have also got the legs running on my flea, I had to put in some slower motors due to the friction in the cams. Need to solder in the electronics this evening, not much more needed now.

This could be a very silly cluster...

It could cope with a heavier disc, there's a lot of weight to be saved on the rx and speedo as the current ones are quite large, but that would have meant buying new a new Speedo and receiver, and cutting a new disc, so I stuck with what I had. It vibrates a lot at low speed, but seems fine at full speed, like it used to when it was on Randar. Andy, any chance I could borrow your prop balancer on the day? Haven't seen mine since I cut this disc about 6 years ago...

Its a HobbyKing 10a speedo, and fortunately I now know how to turn the brake off.

Excellent. Cheer mate, much appreciated.

And getting this back on topic, here's some more fleas!

The one on the left is Shatner's Bassoon, weighing in at a weedy 52g, and on the right is Quark, a slightly more impressive 70.3g. :D

Quark has an axe/hammer, which is mainly there for self righting purposes, but who knows what might happen..... No weapon for Shatner's Bassoon, but I may see what I can sort tomorrow night. Both are also due a shiny new paint job for Saturday. :P

I like the wheels on Shatner's Bassoon, what are they made of? (cake?)

It looks like there's going to be a lot of very good fleas this weekend - will have to step my game up a bit...

Hah, what kind of weird ass cakes have you been eating? They're 3D printing covered in lint roller. Just some spares I had lying around from AWS 35.

EDIT: Oh never mind, I missed my own reference. :P
