Especially true for the Bandit. After having the spinner fly off after 20 flights (see similar stories earlier in the thread) I just decided to do without one. Part of the issue is that the way PA mounts the CF spinner to the metal backplate, it is very hard to get it centered perfectly. (The holes for the screws allow too much wiggle.) It take a lot of trial-and-error to get it on, and even then it is often not balanced. I say don't bother, unless you find a better spinner than the one PA is selling.
