No need to apologize DEL, I for one just couldn't resist having a bit of dig at your scientific/engineering side of it! - I'm the one who should be sorry I guess.

But all most of us doing, from what I've seen is putting the ply board meant for the slope spinner inside the fuse and the motor mounted to that, with metal plate sandwiched on the outside of fuse, no glue - Well I use a little just to tack/line things in place while screwing it together. (See my and other pics a few pages back).
B!

I thought one the main reasons for adding a plywood disc in front of the motor was to insulate the plastic from heat damage caused by extended motor runs
This problem will be heightened if a more heavier watt hungry/hotter motor is used. The heat deforms and weakens the plastic firewall and in extreme circumstances allows the motor to break free in a spectacular fashion

Agreed... I think the biggest problem with the stock set up is the prop is far to big from that motor causing it to seriously overheat.

Hi Guy's
I've been reading this thread and decided a nice Christmas present from my wife would be the Phoenix 2000. While I'm at it I might as well have her include a new motor and prop.
Decided to go with the NTM 28-26A motor, but don't know what prop-spinner to include.Any suggestions ?

Thanks in advance,
Pat

Prop Selection

do you have to buy a new spinner to get the 9 x 6 blades or is there a direct replacement? If so which one

Most 9x6 props should fit the stock spinner....

looks like there are yoke sizes and 8mm might be the choice.

You could try this spinner from Giantcod :
http://www.giantcod.co.uk/40mm-40mm-...-p-403348.html.
I've got one fitted to the NTM35-30 motor on my Phoenix, and they also do the accessory kit:
http://www.giantcod.co.uk/advanced_s...+35-XX&x=0&y=0
At least they appear to have both in stock!
The blades supplied with the Phoenix are 9x6, just don't break them as nobody seems to have them in stock!

or look on E-Bay...
