Check the rotor's specifications for the maximum length of the stub mast. Light-duty rotors will severely restrict the length of that mast so as to limit the lateral loading on the bearings of the output shaft. If you can, use a thrust bearing to maximize the durability of the rotor unless you have one that's beefy such as an amateur radio model. If your rotor is an inexpensive one, keep the stub mast as short as you can while still mounting the DB8 so it clears the rotor and any guy wires.
