Ultra micro "Thumbkin" using Excelobatics

I found these "Thumbkin" graphics from "Micro RC World". Just wanted to try printing them on our newly invented ink jet ready foam "Excelobatics". I printed them on both 0.5mm and 0.25mm sheets. The vivid colors are awesome when printed. Thank you Martin Newell for the great model. I am going to try each model with different power setups and receivers I have. I am hoping my own 350mg receiver can be used in some of these.

I made two sizes. One at 2.2" and one at 2.9".

Please throw your ideas about kind of things I should be experimenting with this model in terms of electronics and power setup.

Thank you.

Will you be enabling a library of skins for the Excelobatic sheets for people to print at home? There need's to be a thread with skins on that designs can be chosen from.

Thanks for the idea.

I actually started an FB group having that idea in mind https://www.facebook.com/groups/632583953547592/

I am a software guy and coming up with some skins wouldn't be an issue.

Your Thumbkin prints look great! Did you print on the 0.25mm sheet without skin and with coating for this model?

Joe.

That is good news as I am sure it is lighter than the same sheet with skin and coating!

That is correct. This leaves us the option to have some kind of a protection layer over the print as well.
