My Blejzyk Mefisto has a 30mm spinner and a generic 10x6 prop. This is pretty much the same as my other 2m glider, the Sigma.

I think that the spinner/prop combination is very bulky (in aerodynamic terms). Can anyone suggest a spinner that might help make this more streamlined?

Depends what your motor shaft dia is but the white plastic+ali ones here are shorter profile.

I'm looking not so much for a more compact spinner, but a narrower installation including the prop. The shaft is 3.17mm.

This offset hinge type spinner might be what you need. You would probably have to change the prop blades if you want the same dia as you have. Actually if you check you might find that with your current prop/spinner assembly the prop is greater than 9" when the blades are extended.

Hyperflight have a good selection of small spinners of a streamlined type, and also prop blades.

Thanks for your suggestions. Those offset versions look to be just the thing...
