I'll post some in-flight video once the indoor flying season (aka "winter") arrives...

Seasons Greetings from Jasta 518!

I had a chance to meet up with Dustoff Kris over the weekend for some indoor flying and we got our two Flyzone Albatross Mods together for some photos - so without further ado, here they are!

Does anyone know when flyzone quit selling the white spinner with the propeller/spinner pack? I needed a new prop and bought one (from Tower) and got some small black spinners instead. The part number is the same but will look all wrong when it's mounted.

I started making my own spinners years ago our of cheap cooler foam. Or packing foam. Just break off a cube. Mount it to a dremmel. Spin it up. And start sanding/filing.

I thought of trying to make them to after thinking I may not be able to get replacements. There's a Michael's near me So I also thought of going by there to see if they sell foam balls that I could cut a piece off that be a close fit.

I think you'll find foam balls extremely hard to work - large cells and brittle.

As leethetreeguy suggested, it's easy to make your own ... as shown here.
