Question: rc propellers

Hello everybody, this is my first post on the forums.

I've been reading a lot about RC for a few months now, very interested in the hobby, have bought my first plane and itís an FMS Cessna 182 V2 (1.4m)( http://www.xtremehobby.ashop.com.au/...o-fly-kit.html ).
I have been out flying once and it was a far too windy for my skill level (of zero), still I tried my luck but with no skill I crashed within seconds.

Anyway, The stock prop had been ruined in the crash and finding another one from FMS, or any other brand that is the same size is almost impossible without paying $8/per prop, and I'm not about to do that for a very brittle plastic item that Iíd need multiple of.

I'm looking to find a spinner/cone/thing to attach to my motor shaft so Iím able to pick and choose whatever prop size/number of blades I want, but Iím not 100% how to do this, so I thought Iíd ask on here first.
I've taken photos of my motor so Iím giving all the info I can to make this as painless as possible.

Motor: FMS 3536-KV850 - Shaft diameter: 6mm / Bore needed: 8mm
Photos of current setup that is limiting me to one type of prop: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ga694blae04dd78/Taim6hNWJr

What I think I need from looking a around is one of these, http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...t_collet_.html
But Iím not 100% sure.
What I'm trying to do is be able to buy other branded 2/3blade props for my motor.

If any more questions are needed to answer this I'll try and be as quick as possible answering as I'm wanting to try flying again lol.

Thanks in advance for all the help
