    3D Printing, from what I've heard, can be somewhat brittle depending on the material used. I know of a Beetleweight from Team Panoramic on here (the name of which escapes me at the moment) that...

    That would be Rory (rapidrory) or Alex (shakey) on here who would be able to help. Rory is the maker of the ESC, Alex is the person who runs the shop.

    When I say mount it, I mean the angles. Polycarbonate, in my experience, doesn't stand up well when the leading edge is exposed. Spinners tend to cause it to shatter. You are correct that when...
