Default Crashes bend the motor shaft??

Hi. I am a newbie and when I have nosed in My Superstar EP, The nylon propellor has bent my motor shaft. I am now on my third motor. I know.... I should have a trainer to help me. I am going to do this , but in the meantime, Is there a propellor that would snap before it bend my motor shaft?? Yhanks

Try a prop saver. That way the prop gives and doesn't break bend the shaft. I was breaking props every time I went out, but now with the prop saver and APC prop I haven't broke anything yet! $3.00

The screws grip the motor shaft and I use an O ring to secure the prop to the prop saver around the two screws.
