Default RE: 1/2A ducted fan???

I mentioned this not long ago, but seems relavent here,
Would a large spinner help unload a fan/cut-prop/4blade that would otherwise bog the surestart?
Like a 2" spinner in a 4" duct?

I have visons of the center pod with spinner in front and cone in rear with a taper duct exit to match (keep airflow sectional area). Maybe even some balsa cheeks & chin next to the engine.
