I had that happen to me as well, but with the help of a more experienced builder/repairer I got it air worthy again.
Its probably a lot more rugged now, with some added weight of course.

Hey Dan I was going to purchase the IPA. Had my cart all put together last night and got sidetracked and didn't check out. Went to finish this afternoon and the IPA drive went from $419 to $439. What happened?

I just picked up this extra second hand. Basically I hate building so that's why I try to buy second hand, and since my old extra 260's tail got squished I needed a new one!

I love it, but it's missing a spinner.. ! Can anyone reccomend a good spinner that isn't stupid expensive? It's just for looks afterall.

Thanks,

I recommend what PA recommends: the 1.8" carbon fiber spinner!

What about the Hyperion spinners. They are nice and light. I think you can get them through Extreme Flight too(rebranded).

is there a carbon fiber spinner in the 1.8" size available? Plastic spinner are no good and potentialy dangerous....because with time, the plastic is getting brittle and can under high loads break apart....

This is not something I would worry about. I have planes with hundreds of flights and many years or being used and I have never had one shatter/break apart. I also own really large and high power electrics, like a 92" Edge powered by 12S putting out 5500W of power, and it has a really big plastic spinner on it, and has for a while now.

But if you are worried about plastic becoming brittle, you should pay for the CF one from PA, as there are cheaper CF ones to be found on eBay but who knows if they used a UV stable epoxy and then you will be facing the same problem with it coming apart

reg. the 1.8" spinner i was replying on the precedent mail...I knew there is a 1.8" spinner at PA.

Reg. Plastic spinner...it happened to me some 5 years ago....I did not pay Attention...the prop was after a while touching the cap of the plastic spinner...it became a crack (that I did not see)...and it exploded literally...I was really happy that it was summertime and I was wearing my Zurich sunglasses. I know such a "failure" does not happen everyday, but it can happen
