Well, the old converted CD to a top has come back again.......but with quite a different flair, I must say!

I am really surprised this works well. I bet that if I build it, the balance would be a disaster (actually, the parts would probably fly out).

Also, the rotational moment of the motor plus battery counters the rotational moment of the CD . . .
