DC-3 Spinners

EndolfEndolf Club Members Posts: 3
I've got as far as testing my DC-3 on the ground, one of the prop spinners seems to have the thread cut at an angle and is very unbalanced. Which part is the appropriate replacement.

Thanks

    Not knowing what size motor shaft, if you go to the main site and search for 'collet' something there should do.



    That, of course, is presuming that it isn't the motor shaft itself that's bent

    Just been on to HK support, they don't do replacement parts for the semi scale spinners.

    The Dak doesn't have spinners - just prop hubs so use one of the collets

    I'm not going to bother checking myself but there was a comment in the discussion section for the props that may help you.

    If you only need to replace the center piece, then look at "Duraflyâ„¢* Messerschmitt Bf.110 - Replacement Scale Spinner". This is 100% identical to the one used in these props. At last my C-47 will fly again very soon. "

    Not quite the right part there Sawdust. That part is actually the propeller hub - not the silver part that is in front of it (actually the constant speed gearing cover on the real animal) HK have no spares for the bit in question, and finding something 'exactly' the same to do the job may well be difficult.

    I just had a look, you're absolutely right. You'd think they could throw one correct spinner in with each set of them since it's closely related to that part and is a unique animal.
  • I think this was over looked. I'll see what i can do.
