Who makes a 32~33mm 3 bladed spinner?

Marcus, do you have a website? Interested in your props, possible now and in the future
3??...may as well go 5...you may be able to get one made. If 3 is cool, 5 has got to be better

Aero-naut got 3 and 4 blade center pieces, but only for 42mm and larger.

42mm yokes, the 3 blade precision spinners are available from 36mm!
You could use a Ramoser if you don't mind the weight and use no spinner, only the spinner nut. No idea if it can cope with the
RPM/Power but has the added advantage op adjustable pitch...:

That adjustable pitch prop hub is a great idea, especially for the F5D guys that need to fine tune there set ups to finish ten laps at 1000w. Pitch up a little if you have power left or down a little if you are running out. One of you machineist guys need to figure that out. You could probably sell a few.

VP would be cool.. Be a nightmare making something compact enough that could take the forces involved.

Only 2 days after the US. Not bad for having traveled twice the distance.

Thanks a lot, Jacko! Looks like a gem!

As a stepping stone before getting ready for the X-plane I am flying my V-max ECO (aka Tiger, Wilco, Hawk....) with the motor/GB I intend to use in the X:

NEU 1115/1Y
KPG25 5.2
RFM 15x16
GensACE 5S2200 30/60C

There's a Suppo200A ESC in this one but I will use a modified P125 in the X (Thanks Joe!).

I would very much appreciate inputs on how to tweak this setup for max performance. Twisted yoke spinner, different prop, different lipo???

Here's how the V-max climbs:
V-max ECO Hotliner, NEU1115/1Y/5.2, RFM15x16, 5S (1 min 43 sec)


And below you can see the eCalc data.

Thanks...

Ok, thanks! I choose to trust the builder of builders instead of the eCalc, which disagrees with that setup. (a lot!) The calc has been known to be inaccurate before, and I guess the proposed setup is somewhat more extreme than the programmers thought of in the first place

Builder of Builders is Jaro Mueller .
I have not seen better engineered planes and better quality parts.
It is hard to believe his planes done by hands ,not machines.Unique designs and molding processes .He is a Mozart of RC molded airframes.

P.S. My best and most loved power sets came with "negative" efficiency and "Power Out" mark when calculated.

I found a big 40 odd inch wide roll of this stuff at work the other day. I see what you mean. Used it too temporarily hold two big doublers for a 767 pylon together while being installed. Tried to clean it off after with acetone and made the worlds largest most awesome sticky gooey mess. Quite insane stuff, dont get it in your arm hairs though

Hi Jacko,

Did Dan actually stick the BOCA bearing sticker on there....or was it you?

Getting those bearings from USA took a while but MEGA bought a bunch of them to reduce future delays incase people start asking for them (Ceramic ball bearings).


Good luck and have fun,

Gryphon
