Rob, I see a bunch of stuff and also you are on the "dark" side too.. (Heli)... I see a Dueces Wild which I here is an Elite, desired frame.. Got tempted a couple times but pricey.. What is that other piece with the dual motor on the wings blue and white... Duke like..? And Green bottled beer.. dunno 'bout that.. I see magnets for Dukes canopy you installed as well.. Nice Bipe.. I love them too.. Cliff

First picture is what should come with spinner kit. You need to cut your shaft down so the adapter can fit as close to motor without touching it. Then slip adapter over shaft. Tighten set screws down. Be sure to use a dab of lock tight. You can also flatten a spot on shaft for screws. But I didn't. Then just assemble back plate, prop, and last spinner. Hope this helped.

Perfect sir.. Thank You so much.. I was speculating that the shaft needed to be cut.. But.. On the spinner link it shows a different adapter.. A screw on hex thing.. With out that allen "flat spot" tightening method.. I am sure I'll figure it but really wanted and needed a peek at what was working for you.. Cool.. Getting closer to assembly .. Collecting parts.. Also dummy fitted together to see if it will fit in my Jeep assembled.. Tight but seems ok.. Cliff..

after another look. it doesn't matter if the prop adapter rests on the motor housing because it all turns. I'm glad I could help. Need anything else don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks again mate.. It does help .. Truly like those spinners... However my concern is what I was curious of.. the gap.. Is it feasible to close it more? Seems unlikely..

To close gap you will have to move motor mounts back. Or measure gap from mount to necels and get a shorter motor.

I speculated as much.. Mount fits so nice as it is and already spent the funds on motors.. Perhaps a ply mount that is thinner than the plastic one included would help.. I am not home either. Will do some measuring and will get at it hopefully before too long..
