I own SEVERAL Scorpions including 3 4025-12's.
The stock adapter works just fine as long as you take a little time to rough up the shaft with some sandpaper and apply a little blue loctite, tighten it down and let it dry.
The KM also has a technique of tightening it down and twisting it counter-clockwise to lock it down on the shaft. Hopefully he'll come on and clarify.
I like everyone else prefer a bolt-on adapter, but I really like the power and selection of the Scorpions, so I sacrifice the adapter. But I've not had ANY problems with them since I've started sanding and loctiting them.
Also I kinda prefer an aluminum adapter as I would rather bend a prop adapter than a motor shaft (because I seem to crash alot). IMHO.
