    I just got a mach 25, its my first, and I'm having fun with it. My problem comes in with props... they are a proprietary self tightening system and I want to convert it to be able to accept any prop... they pegs look too small to fit a prop and a nut, so my question is, do I need to get an adapter? or can I just get different props and put a 5mm nut on it?

    Rather confusing post.

    What are the measurements? Height of the prop shaft and diameter? Post a pic if you can

    this is a picture of the "proprietary" blade mach 25 props ccw and cw blades have a different shape that the nut fits inside so they self tighten.

    they are hard to find and expensive, and break when you look at them with a raised eyebrow. but because the nut fits inside the prop I cant use just any propeller

    here is a picture of the motor adapter


    I cant seem to find an adapter that will let me use regular props. this is where I need the help =/

    How big are the props and what are these measurements. Remove the rubber o-ring.

    Blade 5x4.5 Bullnose Propeller w/ 5mm insert is the part description

    and the measurement of the mount without the rubber o ring is roughly 5mm wide by 10mm tall, here is a picture of my actual prop


    you can see at the base it has a slight camber

    I didn't even think to look at props with the nut built in, worth a try for 2 bucks lol. thanks for the help, I live in the country so next time I head to the city I'll check in at a hobby shop too. maybe they can try some props before I buy a bunch of parts that don't fit lol
