The real question... Do you want it un-puddled? Because I have a technique for doing just that...

Step 1: fill sink with hot water, sub-boiling is ideal.
Step 2: place disc in sink.

For many discs, this is enough to un-warp or un-puddle a flightplate. The heat loosens the plastic polymers up, it will often bounce back to its original shape. If it is still puddled...

Step 3: place "still warm from sink" disc top-down on a flat surface.
Step 4: acquire a saucepan smaller than the inside rim diameter.
Step 5: center the pan on the flightplate and fill the pan with heavy things. I use 5 lb plate weights. 8 of them, to be precise.
Step 6: wait.
Step 7: remove weights, inspect disc. It it is flat to your liking, put it in the freezer for an hour, so it can cure and retain its new shape.

Try it, flat discs > puddles. All day erry'day.
