I am currently working on a melty ant, with the aim of super sizing it for next years nationals

Edit: I'm also the crazy one attempting a ring spinner. I have a lot of work ahead of me Laughing

Thanks again Nick!
I might still try attaching a wedge back there, because I can't drive inverted and I want to try a material adhesion technique but I'm glad to know I am not going to get stuck whe ...

With nationals in a few days, I should start my build thread here.

I attempted to start my featherweight build over a month ago with a ring spinner:

My antweight Scarlet has a 110mm 30g disc at around 15000rpm and it ridiculously over powered.

Awesome, thanks! I am thinking of dropping my ring weight to 25ish grams and using the weight to pack ...

Just realised I haven't updated here for a while.
I have been quite busy designing and redesigning both my ants and my feather.

Hi All

Thanks for the advice!
I guess I wasnt really thinking of the difficulty of scaling my current system (running in ants) up to the feather weight class.

This is going to be a big leap and ...

Well done for getting a super heavy weight built!
