Default Question about 049 props

Hi:

I need a 5in propeller, it could be a 2 or 3 blades propeller; the (electric) motor shaft is a 1/8 in. (3.17mm) size; if the prop is plastic, it could have a 3mm hole so to tightly fit on it.

Is there anything like that out there?

Thanks
Robert

You will need a prop adapter.

Then you can mount what ever prop is needed. If you tried to press a prop on, it may go flying off.

Well, in fact this one will be pushing instead of pulling the model, it's for an airboat, with the motor facing backwards.

Thanks

With the prop adapter on the motor shaft, it does not really matter that it pushes or pulls. If you just press the prop on the shaft, it can slide on or off the shaft.
