Question Source for a light weight 3 blade spinner?

My MPX Pilatus Porter launched the 3 blade prop, spinner, and prop adapter while high up and pretty far away. I got her back to the runway just fine, but no luck finding the departed parts. I'm thinking the 2" 3 blade Dubro spinner is too heavy, meant for nitro planes.

Anyone know a source for light weight 3 blade spinners, meant for electrics? Much Internet searching and I've come up with nothing.

No luck yet. More searching, nothing. If it departs again I'll just have to go back to the 2 blade. That's if I get it. I ordered a new adapter, prop, and same Dubro spinner at my lhs. The adapter and prop have come in but not the spinner, and in my searches, I've been seeing that spinner backordered. Hope they didn't quit making even those!
