if you are waiting on Craig to make a move... well you can keep waiting. I actually waited years for replacement of a defective prop with a lot of unanswered emails and phone calls. And I was proactive trying to help. Very Sad.

Allan said it was required. So i did not ask any further. After all, He is the spinner guy. I am sure he can elaborate.

No need to bash anyone. One way or another it will get done and folks will benefit from the prop spinner combo in the future.

Any news on this front? Looking to finish up in the next 6 months and this is high on my get-it list. Thanks for taking this on Axel and Allan!

The spinners are supposed to be mailed to me from Catto. Waiting on that. I also purchased some bulkheads to do the fitting on my plane. Once I get that done, I am sending them to Allan.

Got a sample peice for the 2 blade from Allan a few weeks ago. He is making a change to the template. Should have another test piece soon. The rolled edges looked nice.

Yes. Allan is working on the 3 blade version. I am expecting the new 2 blade version and the 1st 3 blade version soon. The time line is much longer since the parts have to be mailed from Australia to the U.S.

Your spinner is going to look awesome! Is this the only source for an alluminum spinner for the Catto?
