Aero-naut fixed blade props are a quality alternative to Graupner and APC. They range from 6" to 10.5" sizes, and come in both glass composite (the white ones) and carbon composite (the black ones). The carbon blades are capable of speeds up to 15,000 rpm. They are also stiffer and stronger, which means less flexing and more resistance to breaking. The glass composite variety give an economy version for most sports applications. The sizes indicated below represents those currently in stock - more sizes are being added with each shipment, so if you don't see the size you want, please ask.
All except the 7x7" prop have holes for 6mm shafts, with a step in the rear at 8mm diameter. This allows for either fitting directly to 6mm prop adaptors, or easy drilling out to 8mm for the large range of 8mm prop adaptors. The 7x7" size already has an 8mm hole.
