Yes Our friend Tek has the same setup also so Here I go and create a 24 volt starter box with 2 batteries and he shows up with that little Lipo a deans connector and has oodles of power on his starter fires up the big ol 4 strokes and my Zenoah 26cc without a blink of an eye. lol

Love the see through foam DOG LOL At least that way you can see the target through the plane before you smack into it I can't recall seeing an old plastic spinner like that with the groove for the prop cut out so high on it, everyone I have has that short little opening I have to carve out with my x-acto everytime (Oh,,, is that a plastic spinner?)

Wayne glad there wasn't too much damage on the maiden was there a Video?

Yes... its a plastic spinner and the angle of the blade slot is strange. I would love to have a plastic one verses cutting Alum or carbon, not to mention how priced they are.

Between a spinner like this and moving my packs<if needed> I should be able to get the CG set on the 87....

All I am finding are carbon and alum spinners.

Guess it helps to post the example
Closest I could find is something like this:

http://www.hobbylinc.com/htm/dub/dub970.htm

but it is much smaller and lightweight.

Agreed...I did some searching on google over lunch time and I couldn't find anything close. Have you considered a heavy hub or something like that?

Thought about that but I really want something over that Vess Balance Ring. It looks like some of the $27 dollar alum spinners will weigh enough. Maybe I should have Joe look around the Dubai Hanger, might be one there.
