Mini thrower? Find a way to use multiple stacked lenses to tighten the beam. I don’t know if it would work or not, but I thought that it could be done with one lens (might take two) to focus the “beam” from the LED down, then another lens to straighten it out at the smaller size. Other people have done it at larger sizes, but if you could do it at the tiny size of a DQG Hobi, that would be cool. Maybe it would require use of some Fresnel lenses in order to take up less space.

Thanks Dave, yeah it's even a wee bit smaller than the carbon fibre zoomie Smile

 

Here's a couple of small lenses if you were interested in trying your own
