The chassis is a 80mm diameter 1mm carbon fibre disc with the drive motors, battery and receiver underneith. The weapon motor and controller are mounted above the chassis. A second carbon fibre disc acted as a bottom cover while the weapon itself was the top. The chassis was surrounded by wire mesh to keep the internals out of the weapon.
