Default Motor Mount Size?

I have no idea where to post this question, and it seems like I made a noob mistake, so here it is.

I purchased a mystery 4000kv brushless outrunner and 30a esc combo from ebay recently, but chose not to consider where I might find the mounting hardware or prop adapter.

If anyone has any idea where i could possibly find this hardware, I would be incredibly pleased. I know this motor was intended for helicopter use, but it fits my specific need here perfectly.

Here is a link to the exact motor on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mystery-4000...item2a1cee440f

Once again, thanks!

Or try your local hobby shop.

Hobby people has most anything you will need in stock. Use your local hobby shop whenever you can. If you don't it may not be there when you really need it.

I have checked all of my hobby shops. Unfortunately, they are full of unhelpful, grumpy old men. I am only 18 and they do not take me seriously. I had several bad buying experiences with them and have not gone back except for today to search for this part. This is why I am forced to do most of my buying online where people do not assume that the younger generation is completely stupid. And just to prove so, I have built 6 scratch built models that all flew great.

Thanks for the replies though. Still searching for the exact part that I need.

Zeldinio,
Just so you know, age has nothing to do with it. I've been building boats for 30 years and still get treated like someone that's totally inept by several people, both on line and in person. To go outside of R/Cs, I've been a square dancer for 40 years and, even though I've been around the activity that long, I've been and still do get treated like a newcomer by people that have less than a quarter of the time I do just because I don't have as much grey hair as they do.
