Art Hobby Spinner

Anyone have this spinner from Art Hobby? http://www.arthobby.com/index.php?pa...ub_category=54 Looks pretty sweet but does it "allow blades to retract flat against glider fuselage" when the motor is turned off? If it functions well as advertised then I wouldn't mind shelling out the extra money. The down side is you need to drill vent holes in the fuse and canopy which I'm not too crazy about.

Yes, I have one on my AH Odyssey 2.7m and the blades do indeed lay flat (photo attached.) Also, not positive you necessarily need to drill holes in the fuse and canopy (perhaps only if your motor and/or ESC run hot?) FWIW, here's another option at 38mm instead of 40mm (specs also show ~10g lighter):38mm Hyperspinner

Leadchucker: A Solaris.

os2: Good to hear. The instructions in my Solaris kit say to drill vents but I guess I'll fly it first. May not need it. Your Odyssey looks great. The spinner fits the shape of the nose perfectly.
