Also I found that some acetate sheet rolled up inside the fabric helped to push it apart and gave better diffusion.



Nice idea - I'll have to try that!

They show up extremely well in everything but direct sunlight. I can't wait to get some pics of these things spinning.

Posted:I just added a pic of them to the gallery. I used 9 volt batteries, with 3 watt resistors. It's over engineered, sealed and packed in tight so they should be able to take a serious beating. I ran them for a while before dropping them into the polycarbonate and didn't notice much of a heat buildup. I guess my heatsink was overkill.
The weight and drag is about the same as my hybrid fire heads so they spin really well.
