Default 4mm prop adapter

Does anybody know who makes a 4mm prop adapter(collet style) that the threads are longer that what I got? I have the E-flite one and I don`t have enough threads for the spinner and the prop..All the ones I come across seem to be the same short style.....thx

Check this out: http://www.newcreations-rc.com/Produ...umber=HLAN2414

But it is set-screw type, not collet.

mazjag, I used to run into this very problem and here's how I corrected it.

Instead of mounting the spinner back plate in front of the collet base and behind the prop, I drilled out the spinner back plate to fit BEHIND the back of the collet collar.

That way the prop fit as intended, the spinner then bolted/screwed to it base plate. You may need to cut the slots in the spinner a little deeper to allow it to slip back further on the prop.

Here, like this.
