GWS 5043 propeller mount on Hobbyzone Champ


Hi there,

took the advice of many on this forum and bought a 5043 prop. So, what is the best way to mount it on the Hobbyzone Champ? The hole in the 5043 prop is much bigger than that of the stock prop.

I like these.

1.5mm/0.06" shaft to 4mm, Internal collet adapter

Very secure on the shaft. They thread on securely, are super light weight and a drop of CA on the outside and threads will have these locked on nicely. I've had a dozen nose overs with these and the 5043 and it's still nice and secure.
I tried the GWS adaptor and spinner combo...it's rubber and I lost one prop mid flight in a field. It too was CA'ed on the shaft. The GWS spinner collet adapters look cool but I only use them for adding a spinner on afterward.

Follow the link and scroll down further to see them. THey come in a variety pack for different size shafts.
