Unless you want to try drilling a hole straight through the motor shaft, nope. However, mamo-models or something like that makes one that is sold through Horizon. Supposedly the best setup out there and it goes around the motor, so it works with any brushless outrunner.

What about the Mamo from Horizon Hobby? Will it fit?

http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...?ProdID=MAOUSD

"it does not require a hollow shaft motor. It will include two set of blades 8" & 9" and will also be selling replacement parts. The most common to replace are (2) 2mm x 12mm screws that are sold by Du-bro in a pack of four."
