Unhappy Top RC P-51 Spinner balance

Has anyone had any problems with out of balance spinners from Top RC ? I have their giant scale P-51 and it seems way out of balance .

I did not. I balanced mine, it’s better but not perfect.

I did the same thing , but I'm still not happy with it , had to cut a lot of material out of the back plate . That should not have to be . I have been trying to get in touch with Vortech , but no luck , seems their phone # is not working .

Try emailing. Dave may be at an event. They are usually very good with communications. What about Tru-turn?

Tried E-mailing but the web site it takes me to a different site . The phone # that is given when I call is a different # I tried a number of times . True turn would probably make one but they are very expensive, They would be my last resort . The Vortech site takes info on what you need but they have no way of asking if they would make a 5 3/4 " spinner and price and It will not let me get into their site to e-mail .
