Are going to hand or leccy start the motor? If the latter then that backplate looks a bit flimsy to me.

Carbon spinners are quite common on petrol setups, but I'd agree with Ron about that backplate and electric starters. The Irvine branded and similar ali backplate spinners have a lot more meat than the one pictured but I've seen several of those distorted by the pressure of electric starting.

Andy, those spinners are designed for electric powered 2 mtr aerobatic aircraft - that's the F3A designation. Not at all suitable for IC power as Ron has already intimated.

I just noticed the postage cost. £3.95 to post something weighing about an ounce.......................secret

Mmmm, not sure how well that backplate might take repeated electric starter application..........As mentioned earlier, it looks as though it's intended for electric models.
