Default GWS EPS350 - Shaft Size?

Wanting to order a prop saver for my GWS Beaver motor (i.e. EPS350), does anyone know what the shaft diameter is? 2mm, 3mm or other?

I think they are 3mm but you can make a prop-saver for these by bolting on a old servo arm and put the prop on and then use rubber bands or "O" rings to secure it to the front of the servo arm. It works OK for me on the lower power brushed motors on the GWS birds. Try it!!!!!!!! Full size servo arms work the best if you have some extras laying around....
Good Luck

Wait just a minute - 350C motor has a 2mm shaft. A GWS gearbox to which you can fit a 350C motor has a 2.88mm (~3mm) shaft!
