Also prop sizes seem to vary more in the smaller models than the larger ones so making a spinner for a kit that could essentially be not usable might not be worth the time.
Speaking of spinners, why is it that 9 out of 10 spinners come with the ridiculously small prop openings. I guess I haven't found these 14"-20" props that are 10mm wide. Still looking

many people who buy spinners like to trim them just perfect to the shape of their particular prop. other manufacturers like the ExtremeFlight spinners go the other way and have a rather large cutouts for the prop. different products with different design ideals, pick the products that most suit your tastes...

I have 2 great planes spinners and had to cut them. I am always worried about makeing it out of balance. So I cut both sides and put it on the balancer and trim until its balanced. It takes a bit of time to get it right(its a pain really but those GP spinners are really nice)

Nope, it was taken at the same time as the others but facing East.

I haven't flown at sunrise in a LONG time. Would rather be sleeping then. Hehe.
