Thanks man,

Ben, it depends on the motor - if you're like Voodoo and running a mini pyro, I think he's buried his half way into the fuse? Shaft size varies as well, depending on the motor. Scorpions in that size range are 5mm, the mini pyro is 6mm I think.

If you're working with folders then pretty much the ones suitable for this size range are 8mm, i.e. the centre hub goes onto an 8mm shaft adapter, so you can swap to a fixed prop with an 8mm hole.

Voodoo will have to chip in here...

If you set up the mini pyro in reverse like my myself and voo doo,the end can dia is 40.5mm...so a 40mm spinner,sharft size is 5mm.
Like DUP says aeronaut folding hub spinners or graupner too..

One of my D60 is stripped. They're brand new so Im not sure whats caused this.
Its glued in with 5min epoxy. Can someone tell me how to get it out without damaging the wing?
Im not concerned about damaging the servo.
The other option is I glue the flaps closed but ideally I'd like to keep the flaps.
Any advice please.

grind it out with a dremel (ie grind the servo away from the wing). I wrap my wing servos in masking tape before gluing, then if I need to remove the servo, just slice the tape and gently peel from the tape.

I am actually really slow
Alright thanks guys. I can work with different shaft sizes, it's really the spinner size I need to know. Reason being is instead of moding the 7x10 im doing to have a larger hub. Im just going to mould the spinner integral to the prop. Similar to alot of F3D props out there. Will look real cool and you wont have to buy a spiner to suit.

So im just trying to get a good idea of the most popular spinner diameters before I go mould something

NiMh pack


Hey guys, I am looking for a NiMh battery that I can fit in my Viper.

I have been using a tiny lipo, but the BEC crapped out just before flight.

I tried my EneLoop pack but it's a little too wide (44/21/21mm)

It really doesnt matter how long it is, but I need it no more than 15-16mm wide

I would like to stick with a 4.8V NiMh now.

Any suggestions?

You could try this, get one of those 9v rectangle batteries inside you will find 6x1.5v small AAA type size batteries wired in
series. Re-configure to how you want.

I managed to grind the servo out with only slight damage to the wing. I put a carbon patch in the servo well to reinforce it.
As if it couldn't get any worse when I was setting up my elevator servo my wiring harness shorted on one of the wing bolts and burned out my receiver.
Hopefully I have better luck flying than building

That's what I was thinking. Do you know which cells are the best? I don't know much about NiMh

Generally, the price is an indicator of how good. As far as I know, non of there cells are junk.

Each cell has the dimesions listed. Decide on the smallest capacity (mah) your willing to use, and the configuration, it will give you the finished dimesions and approx weight after you've built the pack.

How many servos.
Digi or analog.
One or two flights.....or all day flying between charges.
Weight (CoG).
Where's it going to fit in the fuse.

More than one thing to consider

My Excite runs 3 analogs, and came from Skip Miller with a 150mah pack. To me, that's crazy.

I have DLGs that have 4 digis that I can fly for an hour easy with 350mah packs. And they are very small.

Where I can, I go more mah than needed, just for peace of mind. That's just me.

You can get away with a very small pack (if needed) and charge it before each flight.

Give them a call, they have been very helpful to me.

Ok, I will look into it.

I am looking for the smallest pack I can get between the elevator servo and the side of the fuse (just behind the wing). If I can only get two flights with it, I am fine with that. I am more concerned with saving room. I can't fit everything in this bird. I am running 2 Hyperion DS-09's and 1 MKS 6100
