Default Spinner for 1/4 Scale Piper Cub

I had a quick question about a prop spinner for a 1/4 scale cub. I would love to get a spinner because it is much easyer to start with an electric starter. What size spinner should I get for a 16 inch prop? The Dubro website shows 3in Spinners under the 1/4 scale tab. (Just so you know I am useing a saitio 1.50 fourstroke to power it)

On my Cubs I use an aluminum hub, like the heavy brass hub but instead an aluminum one or if you need nose weight use the brass one. Most real Cubs did not have spinners. Just my thoughts.

You should be able to get one at your local hobby store, but when you go you will need to tell them what engine you have so they can match up the thread on your prop shaft.

Hey Pipercub4
Check out the February issue of Model Aviation page 35, at the bottom of the page you will find an ad
from Tru Turn. They now have light weight hubs for CUBS, they are great people to deal with. i see them every year at the Toledo show. Hope this helps.
