Not good to hear, big loss to the hobby and bigger loss to friends and family.

Fantastic pilot indeed.

Think APC E props
I have had a few prop blades hit the adapters before, and throwing a spacer on the adapter before the prop was my answer.
This looks like he machined a solution to the blade hitting problem, and it sure wont hurt performance.

[QUOTE=SlowBarless;23964720]Adrian that looks like a spinner thats made for a yoke to go in the middle for folders, not for a fixed prop. I wouldn't use that for a fixed prop

I think SlowBarless hit the nail on the head, that's why the spinner have the square cut out,8mm hub is a little big for an APC 4.75 x 4.75
Thanks for your input moparmyway
