    So Ive made a few Ants now, but not ventured into the world of spinners etc so for my next one I wanted to make something along the lines of HyperShock with a sprinkling of Magnetar. So Ive come up with these CAD designs so far




    I have prevously bought a Turnigy D2822/17, so I was wondering whats the best way to design the drum spinner? To have the Turnigy just off the side of drum spinning it direct? Or to have it connected to a cog and then spinning a band/pully system down the center of the drum? Is there a prefered system for builders and why?


    Thanks for any help

    I'd connect it up directly as this cuts down on weight and simplicity to save weight (it is what I did on Ikari) but I do know of at least one belt and pulley system in the AW class, which obviously has the advantage of slipping on stalling from hitting a competitor.
