I thought the adapters are standard or at least small enough to go through the props...use washers for smaller holes on the props...anyway, What do you suggest? I dont want to enlarge the hole in the prop. I think that will mess up its balance. I think I should go with wood props again.
APC's can be easily drilled out, a drill press is best, to do this, but you can use a hand drill if needed.....and, the existing center hole of APC props are not always exactly centered. That is why they give you the plastic rings that go into them to center them. That said, for some stupid reason, the included rings are SAE sizes instead of metric, and 99.999% of our motors have metric shafts. But....APC has metric adapter rings, and I believe AeroMicro in Santa Clara has them, if not Perry can get them for you....or I even have a few.... If you want me to drill out some props for you, I would be happy to, as I do have a drill press.... You can also use a metric prop reamer, which you can get at AeroMicro.
I also have a balancer so we can balance your props.....
