Question
Adagio 280 folding prop shaft size

Title says it all. Anyone know the motor shaft size of the Adagio 280 folding prop assembly?

Thanks for the help.

If you have the original E-Flite motor, the shaft was 2mm IIRC.

Of course it was a LONG time ago that I replaced the spinner, but 2mm sure does ring a bell.

You may be right Ernie. Little shaft has the strength of a wet noodle.

I don't care about the original motor, sorry, I should have been more clear.

I can pick up a couple of these for very little but the current owner has neither the motor nor the original plane nor any way to measure the inside diameter. Since he is in another city I do not have them in hand or I would just measure them myself. I am hoping they will fit a standard 3mm shaft since I have extra motors in that range. If not, I need to know what size they actually are to get the appropriate motor.

The original folding prop assembly is for a 2mm shaft.
