Sorry, I meant to say after a test spin of the prop + motor (raw it for 20 seconds), it loosened just a tad. My hex nut (small Du-Bro version) fits but it's so tiny the vibration from the bigger parts surrounding it - untightened it.

Can't wait until this tropical storm passes so I can test this and my repaired mini FMS warbird (same engine, same prop) out.
