For example are Turnigy and E-flite 4mm motor shafts
interchangeable?

I Dont think so ???? buy the proper motor shaft and save yourself a lot of time and money and flustration.

What Chellie said :)

Many motors have different diameter shafts on the inside than whats outside where the prop attaches. They also have slots for keeper rings cut in different places. On top of that, what one mfg calls 4mm may not be the exact same 4mm that another calls out due to sloppy or careless tolerances/specs.

Thank you - Some of them look identical and look to be interchangeable. Like you say though some have different cuts & grooves and some have different diameters between the inside and outside sections. That
answers my question.
