Default Eflight 400 motor help

I have the eflight brushless motor. I had it in my mini funtana with the gear box and didnt have any luck keeping the gear box together. Anyway I put just the motor in my mini sukhoi electric plane I have. What size prop adapter should I use and what size prop should I use. I am not using the gearbox. This is just stright from the motor.

I believe the shaft is a 2mm
As for prop size, need a little more info on the plane, weight wing span, etc,
Also which kv motor and what batteries.
If you PM me the info, I can run it on a couple of calc programs to see whats possible for you

Direct drive, Either of the Eflite Park 400 "inrunner" motors will only be able to spin a 4" prop without burning up... They need a gearbox to be useful.

What particular issue were you having with the gearbox?
