    Parts to make out of ceramics clay

    Basically I have a ceramics class that I can make whatever I want in. I was thinking it would be cool to make some RC stuff out of it. So far I have thought of makng a lipo "safe". Throw in any ideas! Thank"s,

    If you could make a ceramic motor can, you may just become an instant millionaire! For now maybe just try for a motor heat sink.

    LiPo safe is a good idea, if you want to go big you could make a whole charging station lol. Maybe some wheel hexes?

    Are you going to have sections in the box to separate different lips if you want to charge more than one at a time?

    Great job. Im excited to see how it turned out.

    You could make a stand. You know, like one to put it on that keeps the wheels off the ground so you can work on it.

    Basically there is a two by two inch square hole on the bottom. (Didn't get a picture of it) Thats where I'll put in the lipos. I'll be sure to show you once it's finished.

    As of right now I'll probably end up making a stand. But...... can you think of anything cooler?
