Just wondering what the exact diameter of the base of the collet adapter itself is. Reason I need this info is I'm hoping to replace the collet on this with one of mine which fits a 5mm motor shaft. (Of course this is assuming that the collet on this is NOT "built in" but rather can be removed.)
I've been having a heck of a time finding a spinner this size (30 to 32mm) that can fit a 5mm motor. As we all know this size of spinner is commonly made to fit 3 to 3.2mm shafts so I'm hoping that I can adapt this one for my needs.
I'm guessing that the base of this collet adapter is probably smaller than mine and so I may have to drill out the actual hole in the back plate itself to substitute it with mine.
You should rather fit a prop to a motor, not motor to a engine. 13x8 I think some 1500kv motor and about 500w. I think a 500w engine would have a 4mm or 5mm shaft not a 3.17mm - so, first you have to find the motor.
I was not able to press it on my Turnigy B2835-3900 with a 3,17mm shaft. I tried to drill it up to 3,2mm. Then I was able to easely press it on the shaft. I tightened the spinner and sadly discovered that the spinner makes heavy vibrations. My advise after this: DON'T try to drill it up. It will only destroy the spinner sentering capability. This was my experience with this spinner.
3 thumbs up!
I'm using this spinner on my Demon pylon at 183plus mph with a 4.1 x 4.1 prop. Straight and smooth with no vibration
