Been working a bunch lately(at my vocation), finally got around to "inspecting" things. The Flex drive appears to be 1/4"(huge) and then it decreases to 5mm(yep 5mm?) thru the strut and then passes thru a rear ball bearing bushing. I tried a 3/16 prop, wont quite fit, so now i have to figure out if I want to use the stock setup and slightly mill the 5mm down to accomodate a 3/16 prop...........or slightly bore out a 3/16 prop to fit the shaft......hmmmm. I sure would like to use the factory hardware as it is very nice, and sturdy. Boring a prop can certainly lead to balance issues. Thoughts?

5mm to 1/4 prop adapter and run 1/4 props. We are going to be running 50mm - 80mm props. Dont think we want those 3/16 ones on these rigs. (remember my Elam Plus with that little 3mm shaft)

Scorp, the part that you need for the 5mm strut is:

On the 1/4" (.250) isn't that actually 6.something mm?
