I must qualify my earlier statement.. the spinner we tried was a turbo nosecone, 36mm. Not sure if the 30mm one has a lip that locks the bottom of the plastic part, but the 36mm doesn't.

I think they are probably suitable for the Aeronaut prop range, which don't recommend spinning above about 10K.

But hey.. get one and try it. You don't know for certain unless you do.

Bro i was thinking about going with a aeronaut folding spinner..would they handle 28k rpm ish no worries?

Thats the level of rpm I'm turning and it works fine. No experience with them over 30k, and I take BM's word for it.

I use the Aeronaut on mine now cause Graupner is impossible to get here....I just trimmed the spinner cap a bit and use it for fixed and folding props.

RFM does a CF spinner, but it's a folder type. Means the blade choice is more restricted.
I will go with a prop adaptor.

I knew I'd seen that style of model before (in Blitzu's avatar). Clever man, and boy can he build !

Having said that, I disagreed with him about my prop choice at the Ampfest (and i think I was right)

Pretty sure Brian will disown you for not using the props he suggests

Man, now that there is a few of us I'm going to have to start driving up to Auck's for the pylon. Need more time off work!

Definitly!
Its all mostly gas planes at pylon,x2 electrics last time..(harris beat john danks by 1 sec).I reckon us electric guys need to get a web page or sumthing and adopt the f5d course and just run electric races based on times being close to each other.No limits on plane size mtr radi rah...

(sorry if that was off topic people )

I would be down at Patetonga this weekend, but am off to the airshow on Nth shore. A few guys from work have been down there racing (nitro)

An F5D ship is next on the list. Maybe a summit with geared sawtooth just to be different

Ill have to keep an eye on Brian, to make sure hes keeping an eye on his own plane, and not too busy measuring my cuts with a micrometer
