Aeronaught also produces some spinners that put the prop off the center line effecting the pitch of the prop. They have been at this folding prop game for a long time and know what they are doing, plus their props are designed for their spinners as a unit, results vary when mounted on other manufacturer spinners.
Oh ya!!!!! Didn't even think of THAT!!! Yes!!! The two yokes ARE different in their spaceing..
