    Need Help with spinner sizes.

    Hello everyone, I am not very experienced in this area so please help me. I need to replace the spinner on my E-flite Mini Pulse because the stock one doesn't fit with the E-flite 10x8 electric prop, so my question is, what size spinner would fit with this prop? on Hobbyzone's website Du-Bro has some good ones in sizes, 1-1/2", 1-3/4", 2", 2-1/2", 2-3/4", and 3". Would any of these sizes fit? Your help is appreciated.

    RE: Need Help with spinner sizes.

    Hey guys, just doing some research and I found out that the size for the stock mini pulse spinner is1-3/4, since that doesn't fit should I get one size up? or just try a different brand in the same size?

    RE: Need Help with spinner sizes.

    It's usual for plastic spinners to not be an exact fit on props, often requiring some careful removal of plastic from the spinner with a scalpel, coarse file or Dremel if you own one.
    Slightly widening the slots for the prop blades in the spinner will often allow the spinner to fit correctly on the prop hub, providing that the spinner is not overly small. Make sure that when the spinner is fully fitted and tightened, that the prop sits clear of the spinner cut-outs and there is no distortion that may cause vibration. (It's vital that the prop blades are not scored or marked by the spinner). If you have to select a new larger spinner, then you'll be limited by the diameter of the cowl ring, so measure the cowl ring diameter and use that as a guide for the largest spinner that will fit.

    Hope this helps.
