Spring Break, Day 2: A Rough Approximation of "Done"

Current weight: somewhere between 2.5 and 3 pounds.  My lousy spring-scale can't do better than that, but either way, I'm good.  If it's on the low end I have some weight to add bling.

It could compete right now.  I finished the other wheel guard, the wedge (don't look too closely...) and got the electronics semi-installed.  The latter are just sort of shoved in without any sense of order or plan.  I'll finalize that part once my 11.1-volt battery packs are in.

I tested it using a 7.4-volt battery I have on-hand.  Once my wife is home I'll have her take a video while I drive.  Everything works great, though it isn't as fast as I'd like.  The higher-voltage battery should help that.

I'm particularly proud of my switch installation.  The next pictures show the recessed slide switch I installed behind one of the wheel guards:
