Silly question about Turnigy 2826-6 motor
I admit I'm a little embarrassed to ask this question, but...
I have a few of the 2826-6 motors, and want to mount Master Airscrew 6x4 props to them. I noticed that the prop adapter that comes with the motor is much larger diameter than the hole that is bored in the prop.
How are you folks mounting this prop to that motor? I'm sure you're enlarging the prop bore, but how do you do it and make sure the new hole is exactly centered?
Like I said, a little embarrassed to ask.....

To open up the hole in a prop, a 'reamer' is required to do the job properly. There are tapered reamers and stepped reamers --

Unless things have changed, MA props were not exactly renowned for their efficiency, (other than paint stirring, I believe), the APCe 6x4 props are generally much better, and come with a set of accurate centering rings for different shaft sizes.
Addition. Here's a taper reamer -- http://www.rcplanebuilder.com/tools/...apered-1-8-1-2

Use one of these. And ream from the front of the prop to the back.
