I use lexan for my rotors, but as Ed Wingate mentioned, heat can be a
problem, since lexan has such a low softening temperature. My rotor
and spinning electrodes run absolutely cold during operation, so I don't
really have to worry about heat. But whenever I try a new TC design, I
make a few tests of varying run times to verify that the electrodes are
still running cool.
By the way, some places sell smaller pieces (1 foot squares) of G10.
