Default Ground adjustable props and spinners

Building a -6 and thinking about going with a Sensenich or Whirl Wind ground adjustable. Does anyone know if I can use my Van's spinner (320/360) with either of these props? Thanks

Can't speak to the Sensi GA prop, but the W-W GA prop will come complete with a spinner bulkhead and spinner, both fit exceptionally well on my application.

Default Same with Sensenich

My ground adjustable Sensenich prop came with its own spinner and bulkheads. All fit great.

I see the Whirl Wind requires 25 hour inspections. How log for the Sensenich ?

I have the Sensenich GA prop. The spinner is Carbon fiber. I sold the Van's spinner here on VAF.

Inspections on the prop are annual, and at 2000 hours they recommend retiring the bolts and lock washers (Nordlocks) along with an inspection of the hubs and blades.

Installation manual link here.

Default Another option - GT propellers

I have a GT 3 blade ground adjustable. Came with Spinner already fitted.
I am not flying yet, but there are several RVís with them in the UK.

Mine is the red, white and blue one with the white spinner.
