  • Phoenix Stuka Ju 87 61cc Gas EP ARF 94.4"

    I've had my eye on this giant scale ARF for a few years now and finally pulled the trigger. I had to sell off some planes but I always loved the Stuka. Flies like a trainer, easy to takeoff and land. One of my favorite foamies was the FMS Stuka. I got tons of hours of fun out of that one. I've had a larger balsa one (55-65" wing or so) which also was a blast to fly. From what I have heard, this one is no different.

    So I am needing some help. I am using the Admiral GP60 on 12S setup with the Castle HV 200A ESC. I am going to go 3 blade vario prop (24"). I am looking for a scale 3-blade 4.5"x4.5" spinner for that setup. Unfortunately Tru-Turn who I have used for years for my custom spinners, is going out of business. I've searched all the main RC forums and surprisingly I cannot find a single build thread on this model.

    The spinner I am looking for would look like the one below. This was a photo of a customer's who left a review. Unfortunately I have no contact info for the person or I would have simply asked where he got his 3-blade setup.

    That should be a great project. I've seen several fly with gas power and all flew quite well.

    Check out ZYHobby for your 3-blade spinner needs.
    Looking forward to following your build.
