This Custom-designed 3D-printed 3-blade spinner was designed specifically for the 30″ wingspan A6M ZERO model airplane as offered by Manzano Lazer Works.
We wanted to offer a lightweight spinner that was the correct scale shape. Our spinner is 1.125″ in diameter and 1.44″ tall. This is designed for a 3-bladed 8 x 4.5 propeller (standard rotation) with our 1700kv 24gm motor and a 2-cell battery. You will need a prop adapter with a shaft length of 10mm (minimum) and diameter of 5mm. The motor, propeller, and prop adapter are available separately from Rabid Models. It can also be used with a 9×7 prop from Rabid Models.
Please see the notes below. To install the spinner, first secure the propeller and spinner backplate on the motor shaft using a prop adapter (or a nut), then the cone simply snaps on – no additional hardware is needed!
Here’s a picture of Jim Bosley’s model with the kit-supplied spinner – compare this spinner to the spinner shown in the drawing of the full-size A6M Zero below.
White PETG. 28.6 mm diameter, 36.5 mm tall

The propeller and prop adapter are NOT included (we have them available for sale separately). This product is for use ONLY with electric motors and propellers. The spinner backplate has a 5mm centering hole.
The plastic spinner parts are unfinished but can be sanded smooth and can be painted with any plastic-compatible paint. Click here to see a video from Fun Scale Models that shows how to finish and install 3D-printed spinners. Painting is recommended because all plastics will deteriorate over time if exposed to sunlight. Glue is not needed!
