If you do decide to shorten the shaft, put the motor in a plastic baggie (seal it up) and poke the shaft through the baggie.

That's good advice, thanks. I don't want to ruin another motor.

I've been using these props with the little red motors and they work out OK too but they are not as cheap as the ones Lee linked and yeah, you have to have the little adapter thingy too.

I also have some of those. The elastic seems too small to stretch all the way over the prop though.
