hacker A40 10s prop mounting

I got a hacker A40 10 s for my PA extra Mx. Motor is to be mounted on the forward end of motor, mounted inside the motor box. The prop adapter (collet I guess) just tightens on the shaft as you tighten the prop nut? This seems crazy to me, but sorta new to electrics. The Hacker manual is complelely worthless!! No useful info at all that I can read.
Thanks

Sounds like you got it. Yes, that collet squeezes tight enough to hold the prop, in most cases. I did have trouble with one that came off during full power, but giving it a little extra torque held it in place. You could also rough up the shaft a bit to get extra grip.
