another thing. i got a new great planes spinner with the aluminum back plate. first off the prop hole is a little big but there doesn't seem to be any centrifugal wobble from it. but i am noticing a rather heavy wobble at the tip of the spinner and at the backplate forward and backwards. the prop is running true though and there isn't any heavy vibrations. just some light ones. has anyone else had a problem like this with those spinners. without the spinner the prop runs true as well.
you will never get all the wobble out...just take the spinner off....i have still yet to run a spinner on a plane....gas would be different story.....maybe
