Nice work with your RSG.
I made a very similar approach a year ago,
but a lot less tidy and with some very crude tools.
I used a length of wood with two nails and pushed one
nail into the center hole, then turning and scratching into
the pcb board until I was almost through, then snapped
of the remaining parts and sanded it smooth.
My versioin was a lot smaller, ca 4" dia rotor with the same
type of oriantal motor known from the propeller gap.
I only had several minutes of runtime on it, but it worked fine.
However, I made 2 of those disks and glued them together for
more strength and double copper thickness, not sure how
neccessary this is...
Good way of making the disk wiht simply tools.
Keep up the good work
