Hi Alan,
I had to cut a 3-blade spinner for one of my models. It is not as daunting as it appears, and the worry of shattering a carbon spinner was unfounded:

Hope this helps if you can't find one already cut.

best regards

Thanks Tom,
I did cut the spinner for my adverrun but that came with templates. Still I may go down that route if need be.
