Default Relacement for Tru-turn

Tru-turn is no longer in the model airplane spinner business. Do you know of a suitable replacement?
Thanks

Default Spinners

Sam,

You might try Valley View RC. They have "Miracle" machined aluminum spinners from 2.5" to 4.5" for two and three blade props ranging from $21 to $51. Look on their web page under "Accessories". Chief Aircraft (chiefaircraft.com) still has a few Tru-Turn spinners in stock, but they won't last long.

So far I have been able to find most of what I need from various classified listings, Ebay and Amazon. There is quite a bit of new stock still out there if you look hard enough. So far I don't care much for the Chinese spinners ..... they are hit and miss on quality but I'm sure they will improve in time. I do tend to buy things that I "might need someday" when I see them available and have passed a few of these along to other people when I see wanted ads looking for them.

A long the same lines I stocked up on prop adapters in 5/16' X 24, 7 X 1mm, and 8 x1.25mm. My engines are mostly Super Tigre Saito, with the odd OS. Horizon/Tower still carries them under the Hanger 9 brand. I have a number of Top Flite Warbirds kits to build when I retire next year and I wanted to put back some of the parts to built]d them. I also have acquired sufficient TF in cowl mufflers and manifolds for the same purpose.
