Skyline/Goldwing Sbach 70 Spinner Installed

The Sbach Du-Bro 2-1/4 in (60mm) plastic red spinner with aluminum back plate came in today, and I installed it. Rotored it the aluminum center hole to fit, and Dremeled down the larger prop openings (there are nice guidelines inside the spinner. Tried to make them smaller, but when it fir it was at the marks...). It installed wih a sweet gap and perfect no-wobble centering. I also put an APC 17x8e prop on it. Later I will power test it on 6S and 8S batteries.

 

 

 

 

The only thing I am waiting on to call it done are the right stickers!

I am thinking I will take the cowl off and out in a washer of right offset before first flight.
