No, sorry. I'm surprised because I saw spare parts for the Albie, including props and spinners, in little baggies hanging from a peg board not that long ago when I was there. I can't imagine when or who would have snapped these up on a plane that's been out of production over a year now. Try here: http://www.scienceandhobby.com/news.php

I was told they are still selling the Flyzone planes.

I called Science and Hobby but got no answer so I emailed them. In the meantime, if you happen to visit Adirondack Trains and you see the props with white foam spinners, let me know on this thread and I'll call them again or you can email me at jtrombla@yahoo.com.
Thanks, Jim Trombla

You can always try Tower Hobbies:

From the looks of it, 2 props plus 3 spinners, and in stock.

I have been in touch with Flyzone (Great Planes) by telephone. They tell me that the picture one finds with 2 props and three foam spinners is out of date and that they no longer make the foam spinners. Also that they have the same part number of FLZA 6100 for two props and three small plastic spinners and also for two props and three foam spinners. All vendors have not yet changed their pictures to reflect the all-plastic set. I talked with Tower Hobbies last Wednesday and they said they do not have the foam spinners and that they needed to change the picture on their web site. I think my only hope is to find a Hobby Shop that still has the old foam spinners in stock set like Adirondack Trains.

Craft stores also sell styro balls/eggs in all sizes(especially now, near Christmas), as do many other places with a craft department(Walmart, dollar stores..etc)
Easy to find one and cut it to size

Hey, I went to Adk Train & Hobby on Saturday on your behalf and found the Albatross spare parts pegboard, and I purchased the spinners and props for you - see photo.

I talked to the woman behind the counter (turns out she's the owner's wife) and she said she remembered someone calling and asking about Albatross parts and she didn't know what they were.

FYI they have enough spare parts there to probably make 2 complete Albatrosses [Albatri?]). Then her husband said that the spare parts weren't selling and he was going to take all of it and stick it on eBay.

Anyway, I sent you a personal message with my Paypal info so I can mail the stuff to you!

This is such a cool looking plane. I am sorry I never bought it before Flyzone discontinued all of their micros. I wish HH would put a UM version of this plane out.

Which ParkZone system did you use? Did you have to replace the motor also or did you just choose to?
