This Custom 3D-printed 3-blade spinner set is specifically designed for the “Fun Scale Models” Do-335 “Pfeil” Park-flyer. This is a 2-part set – the functional front spinner and the decorative rear spinner. This model will be available soon as a laser-cut kit from Manzano Laser Works.
The front spinner is specifically designed for a 3-bladed 9×7 propeller (standard rotation) which is the recommended propeller for this model. The propeller and prop adapter are available separately from Rabid Models. We also have additional 3-D printed accessories for this model (wheels, tires, strut covers), listed separately here.
Please see the notes below. To install the front spinner, first secure the propeller and spinner backplate on your motor shaft using a prop adapter (not included but available separately), then the cone simply snaps on – no additional hardware is needed! The rear spinner cone attaches onto the rear bulkhead.
The Fun Scale Models Do335 Pfeil was designed for a single 24-gram, 1,700 Kv brushless motor spinning a 9 x 7 three-blade propeller. The rear spinner cone on this model is decorative. The spinner+motor+prop+ESC are available as a custom package for your convenience!
Airplane not included! This picture shows Derek’s prototype with the spinners installed. Derek painted the spinners black to match his model’s paint scheme. Here is a video showing this model in flight!
White PETG. 41.9mm diameter (1.65 inches). Weight: about 15 gms total (3 pcs).
This Custom Spinner is sold as a set, you’ll receive the front spinner cone and backplate, and the complete rear spinner cone. The propeller and prop adapter are NOT included in this package. This product is for use ONLY with electric motors and propellers. The spinner backplate has a 5mm centering hole which may need to be carefully drilled out to fit your prop adapter. You may also need to drill out the center of your propeller (or thin it) to use the prop adapter.
The plastic spinner parts require little preparation but can be sanded smooth and should be painted using 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! CLICK HERE to download the spinner instruction sheet.
Rabid Models also offers some additional items for this model – we are making scale tires with hubs (as seen in the picture above), and wire strut covers for the main and nose gear. (Click here)
