Default What spinner for Hacker C50?

I have a Hacker C50 Acro going into a Dream 110. It calls for a 2-1/2" spinner. I'd like to use something like a Tru Turn, but I don't know if these will fit the APC 18x12E prop. Do you have any experience with this?

TIA,

Wiz

Also keep in mind that you don't need an aluninium spinner with an electric motor. (You are not going to use a starter.) Fiberglass, carbon, even plastic - it all works very well, often at a fraction of the price. Lighter too.

Hey Magne,

Do you know of anyone who does a plastic 89mm spinner? I am using carbon at the moment but I agree it is overkill.

Regards

Hello Malcolm.

ES somposites do a series in fiberglass, but they have nothing between 80 and 92mm.
3.5"=88.9mm.
Nexus Modelling Supplies do a 3-1/2" nylon spinner for £3.75. I would guess companies like Dubro make 3.5" spinners in plastic.
Maybe not your style, but probably more than good enough at 6000 rpm.

Hi Magne,

In fact I am using a 92mm ES carbon unit on my Impact.
