Default Eflite Power 46 BL

I have purchased one of these and it seems to be a great motor and lots of power. The problem I have is keeping the prop adapter from coming off. I have gone thru 4 of the Eflite 6mm adapters. I have tried different props and still comes off. Does anyone make a 6mm prop adapter with set screws instead of the collet compression type? Any suggestions?

I have a Himax motor of the same size. Never liked the spinner type nuts on these things as you can't get them tight enough. Replaced mine with a regular nut that you can use a wrench on. Also sand the shaft with emory cloth or sandpaper lengthwise to the shaft to rough it up and give the collet something to grab to. Tighten the nut really well. Never had one come loose.
