Spinners and Prop Adapters for Brushless Motors

I have a number of small brushless motors that have 3mm motor shafts and others that have prop adapters that bolt to the rotating can. I want to use plastic spinners for small warbirds . Most standard or collet type adapters are too short to accommodate a spinner back plate, a prop, a washer and a nut. For longer collet adapters I found a longer Hyperion HP-ADAP-30L adapter sold by RC Dude and AllE RC. For the bolt-on adapters, Innovative Designs sells a longer version for their Cobra motors. Dubro sells an integrated spinner/collet adapter in 3 different motor shaft sizes including 3mm (Tower Hobbies).

Just thought I'd pass this along

Dubro spinners are Heavy things. Sometimes a problem setup.
Gawd knows I've bought enough of them over the years :-)
One could? use a cone /spinner type nut instead of the Hex nut And washer.
Thereby allowing space for the usually 1/16 thick spinner backplates

Thanks for the other source info. Too bad adapter makers don't make prop shafts just a little longer. Maxx Products also supplies a number of adapters for various motor shaft and prop shaft diameters and thread types.
