are the good stuff as far as sport flying goes. You can order directly from their site; I haven't tried it but I'd assume they're not awful. Dunno if shipping to the UK will be cost-effective, though... Aren't there any UK-based stores selling them?
The research agrees. APC props are much more efficient and render better performance by a large margin. But if you're going to order APC wannabe props, all bets are off. Small differences that you can't see can make a prop into a paint stirrer. I wouldn't buy anything but genuine APC.
As some have said, the trick is going to be finding a good supplier for your side of the pond.
