Hello, i've jury-rigged a thrust tester, but im having some trouble with the prop adapter.
Whats happening is the prop adapter uses a grub screw, but the motor doesn't have a flat part for the screw. This is an easy fix with a dremel, but what worries me is the amount of thrust it takes to pop off. When i pull it off by hand i record over 5 kg of pulling, but when it pops off rotating its only pulling .6kgs
any particular reason for this?

You are indeed correct, i just looked at it after i induced a pop off and it was loose.
I will be buying some tomorrow. Could i loctite the smooth shaft too or does it only work on threads?

So i rerigged the tester. I was unable to stop the pop offs, so i have combined the loctite with a ground notch into the side of the shaft for it to rest on.
It is working admirably now
