My friend Joe
who is super leet from the CSUS Combat Robotics team (and we went to high school together) came over and modeled an inside frame for frydrumbot since the original way I designed was going to work. Overall the total weight of the inside frame in polycarbonate was less than 2oz which is good because I only had 2.5oz to work with. Hopefully it will still be stable though. Here are some renderings for your amusement.
I'm going to have it laser cut by a company called Pololu and it should be here by next week so I'll have a week to work on it at least.
