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 fit a 3-bladed 8 x 4.5 “drone propeller” (standard rotation).  Thus, it can be used on any model that uses that size propeller.  You will need a 3-blade propeller and a prop adapter (not included)

Rabid Models does not sell this propeller, but you can purchase it from AliExpress, here is a link (this is only one suggestion): 8045 3 Leaf Blade Propeller ABS CW/CCW For Quadcopter 330 Frame Kit For RC Toy Model|cw ccw|propeller blade8045 cw/ccw – AliExpress

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!

Specs:

White PETG.    Weight 11.8 gms total (2 pcs).
The diameter at the base is 46mm  (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 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 also has the recommended 24-gram “Blue Wonder” brushless motor and ESC available as well, in the motor and ESC sections of the website,
