Spinner question for P-51, Hangar 9, 60 sized
This is an electric conversion.
When I bought my original P-51, I got a spinner with it from the seller. I dont know what brand it is, but evidently it was damaged in the first plane's crash. The screw and the back plate are bent/warped. I fiddled with the screw and pretty much got it almost perfect, but the back plate is continuously wiggling back and forth when you spin the motor.
What brand spinner would be a good choice to buy? I have replaced everything else up front to stop the vibration, so I will replace the spinner itself as well.
Suggestions please. Side note....The spinner back plate's shaft opening is slightly larger than the largest area of my prop adapter. Is that normal? Should I add some filler in there, like wrapping it with a layer of electrical tape to snug it up? The shaft on my prop adapter is an 8mm shaft.
I need a 3 &1/2 inch spinner for this size plane...
Thanks in advance.

just go online and look at one of the hobby shops for the type of spinner you need. And yes there are plastic spacers that can go onto the shaft and the backplate to snug it up.
