Default A30-28S Hacker question

Hi all-

I'm returning to a hobby that I enjoyed over 45 years ago.

Lotsa changes, inrunner/outrunner/LiPo oh no!

Well, now that I've dated myself, here's my question. As stated in the title, I have a A30-28S Hacker motor. I'm going to install this in a Graupner UHU glider that was designed for the old can motor. Now, this motor came with a hub on one side secured by 6 allen screws. The other side has just the shaft sticking out. The hub looks to be designed for a fixed prop; I need a folder.

Is there going to be a problem with removing the hub and installing the folder on the shaft sticking out the other side? The reason I ask is I'm wondering if this motor was designed to use the hub and removing it would cause a balancing problem?

Any thoughts appreciated.

No problem in removing the hub. A lot of motors give you the option to mount in front of the firewall (using the hub) or behind it (using the shaft). Just unbolt the hub and you're all set.
