Hello everyone. On quadcopters, compared to tricopters, one must have two propellers spinning in one direction and two in the other. Is there a counter part to this product that has windings in the other direction, so it doesn't unscrew itself when spinning it in the opposite direction? I really need help on this one! Thanks a lot!
Actually the force when starting a propeller in the normal clockwise direction would cause the unscrew problem you refer to also on the tricopters. The counterclockwise setup would tighten the nut.
Anyway, the spinners for these motors have a perfect hole in which you can put a generic turnigy hex tool (make sure to not just put the tip in as it will break off) and hold the propeller firmly while tightening the nut.
A little thread-lock could be used if you're worried.
I should of said M5 nut. Anyway I ended up pulling all my NTM motors off and replaced them with Multistar and a fixed 6mm shaft on the motor can. I have not looked back. The motors are good, the mount is ****
Arrived nice. should have been included in with the motor. Anyway, can't complain now.

Overall very nicely machined. However, the cross is a bit weak, compared to other sources - it bends at the inner holes quite easily. This is almost not noticeable when actually attached to the motor, but still it's a bit weaker than others.
The propeller mount fit is sometimes very snug, so you have to use the screws to actually drive it onto the motor (by hand it wont go on)
