Default CMP Zero Spinner Hub choice

I need help to find spinner hub for the CMP Zero 72" span. I'm thinking of trying this one at Tower: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXKD84&P=0
What do you guys think???[:-]

Default RE: CMP Zero Spinner Hub choice

Hi,

I'm still collecting all the various items needed to complete my CMP Zero. I have however already purchased the powerplant and spinner I will be using. I went with a Saito 150 which is probably a bit overkill, and I went to [link=http://www.skysharkrc.com/shop/index.php?shop=1&cat=15]SKYSHARKRC[/link] for a spinner I think will look the part pretty well. It's actually the FW190 A8 spinner, but the price was right, and I think it comes pretty close to the shape I was after. The D9 spinner is shaped pretty good too, but was concerned the 3.3 inch diameter was a bit too big. Skyshark has both 2 blade and 3 blade spinners as well.
What engine are you using? Do you have any mods or changes to the kit planned? I'm considering adding split flaps, but I'm not sure I want to cut into that pretty wing...

Hope this helps.

I'm making a spinner plug for my CMP Zero. This what I have so far. It will be composite. Pic shows spinner plug not mounted, but just for seeing if it looks correct .

I use a Tru-turn P-51 3" 3-blade spinner.

Looks like the real one in this picture:

I don't think the aluminum spinner in the picture above is an original Zero spinner. Here are two pictures showing the side profile of an A6M5 Zero spinner. It's more elliptical than parabolic:

Actually, I think the Skyshark D9 spinner will look pretty good on the CMP Zero.

I did a Google image search of the Zero's, and I saw a good assortment of spinner shape and sizes. So my conclusion is that as long as it's close, it looks fine to me. In fact, now I have a 3.5" parabolic spinner, it gives the nose a stronger presence.

Rich, what spinner are you using for your World Zero?

seanychen, I'm using a 4" Tru-Turn P-51 spinner on my WM Zero. I think it looks a little small, and 4.5" might look too big. I rather use a 4" FW190 spinner if I can find one.

Richard L. and Seanychen,

I have the same opinion, FW190 or D9 spinner is the best alternatives
if no Zero spinner available.
I don't know mass produced Zero spinners for 120 size.
For 60 or 40 size, some shops in Japan still seem to have one from Marutaka
in stock. It's aluminum rolled spinners.
This is 40 size one came with the kit.
This color scheme is said for paint saving purpose.

Tsutomu, that's a nice looking Zero. Below is an A6M2 in a similar color scheme:

Thanks, I like this unusual color scheme, it also covers
my poor sanding the surface.

I'll try the skyshark one. Hope the prop cut out can handle the apc 16x8 prop I will try with the Saito 180. I want mine to fly like a bat out of hell when I want to. The tail on this thing is reinforced pretty well.

I just discovered that Gene Barton has a 3 1/2" Zero spinner for $55: [link]http://www.genebarton.com/scale.html[/link]

Other sizes can be made upon request.

This is one I got lately, 2 1/4" or 58mm dia, for
40 to 60 size. Machined dulalumin.
They are sold from SKY WAVE MODEL, I think it's a chinese company,
but I can not find their web site. It costs 5,000 JPY.

Hello,

how about this one.
Which company did you get the spinner from? Is your Zero from CMP?
I got my spinner in the photo above from a distributor in Japan who sells
CMP Zero 54". The spinner seems to be made for CMP Zero 54".
The shop also sells dulalumin mechanical retracts made for the Zero.

Hello

Sorry yesterday was a problem in the Forum, so I can't answer.
I bought my Zero in Austria by MBL ( ModellBauLindinger ), but it's the same kit as CMP.
Span. 70,8",Laser 150 and Eurokit retracts, waiting for the first Flight.

You are absolutly right about the Spinner.It was from an old Zero-Marutaka kit ( span 61" ).
I am sorry about to hear that this Producer does not exists anymore.

greetings

Klaus

nicostoffi,

I bought Marutaka Zero 60 just before Marutaka quit their business
while I didn't know Marutaka would stop selling their kit soon.
After their quitting the business, I secured some Zero spinners from
some shops before they run out since no other spinner can be a substitute.
I'm sorry Marutaka no longer sell their scale warbirds, too.
Good luck to your first flight. Thanks.

Hello,

today I had my Maiden flight with CMP-70" Zero.
C.G. was too much back, so I had a little problem with flying.After trimming the elevator the Zero flies wonderful and with the Laser 150 scale like.
But the stormy weather and crosswind was bringing a landing problem.To fast and to hard, so the retracts broken out of the wings.

So I will have a little work to change and repair this.

greetings

Klaus

The CMP Zero sure looks good.
Nice weathering-work there Klaus! You'll have that wing fixed up in notime, perhaps one might as well beef up the retract-bay? Keep us updated

nicostoffi,

Congratulation to your first flight.
Gear broken? It's no problem.
Just beef up the mount and go again.

Hi

Looking at your spinner, it seems that yours is closest to scale from what I have seen. I went to the site but my question to you is, what exactly you bought there (part number, item number etc.)and what size CMP Zero do you have?

Thanks
Pat C
