P40 Spinner

Description

This is a Custom 3D-printed 46mm 3-blade spinner specifically designed for the “Fun Scale Models” P40 Warhawk as shown in the April 2022 issue of Model Aviation magazine. 

This spinner is designed to work with a 3-bladed 8 x 4.5 propeller (standard rotation)  and can be used on any model that uses that size propeller.  The propeller and prop adapter are available separately.   The spinner’s openings need to be enlarged slightly to fit this propeller.

Please see the notes below. The propeller and backplate installs on your motor shaft with a prop adapter, then the spinner cone simply snaps on – no additional hardware is needed!  This product is for use ONLY with electric motors and propellers.  Click here to see a video from Fun Scale Models that shows how to finish and install these spinners.

Airplane model not included!  Thank you to Derek Micko and Steve Methiasen for sharing pics of their models with the spinner installed.

Specifications:

White PETG.    Weight 13 gm total (2 pcs).
The diameter at the base is 46 mm  (1.81 inches)
The height is 47mm (1.85 inches)
The width of the prop opening at the edge of the spinner cone is 13mm on the horizontal.

The spinner backplate has a centering hole which needs to be carefully drilled out to fit your prop adapter.   You may also need to drill out the center of your propeller to use the prop adapter.

This Custom Spinner is sold as a set (one Cone and one Backplate).   The propeller and prop adapter are NOT included.  The plastic spinner parts are unfinished but can be sanded smooth and can be painted with any plastic-compatible paint.  Painting is recommended because all plastics will deteriorate over time if exposed to sunlight.  Glue is not needed!

Rabid Models has the recommended 24-gram “Blue Wonder” brushless motor, prop adapter, and ESC available as well, you can find these items in the motor and motor accessories sections of the website,
