Go to http://towerhobbies.com and enter 'prop adapter' in the 'search'
window. This is only a start.
You might have to 'grind' a flat on the motor shaft and use a gear with
a set screw and thread-lock.

Prop adapter! Perfect. Thanks a bunch. Do you maybe know of a
cheaper place to get them though? I'm not actually building any RC
planes, I'm using them to connect motors to a force feedback system in
a flight simulator. The price of those guys is a bit high for me
because I'll need quite a few. Is there a more generic name that they
Would you possibly know where to find these gears? I've been hunting
the internet for a bit now and nothing really is popping up...a source
if you have one offhand would be fantastic.
Btw, cool site. Those are some amazing planes on there. I'd be too
terrified to actually fly 'em. That's probably just because I've
never landed my RC plane yet. I crash every time. Actual flight
duration varies, but always ends in a crash. I've got a little foam
RC-trainer Piper Cub. Loads of fun, but best of all, seemingly
unbreakable. Except for the props, that is.
Try looking at http://dumasestore.com/ for some ideas, the
maybe you can find a deal on ebay. In addition, you can
find all kinds of nylon gears at this site
http://www.sdp-si.com/Plastic_Gears.htm . and
has all sorts of things that might be useful to you. Hope
