where to find good counter-rotating props for quad?

Hello all,

I am looking for a good place to find counter-rotating props for a quad-rotor. I am looking for some in the 5x3 range for one nano-quad, and some in the 8x6, 9x5, 10x5, etc larger range for a 1 kg+ larger quad. All I have found on HobbyKing, for instance, are the "GWS Style Propellers" (which I bet are flimsy as ever) here:

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idCategory=533

-All other props I can find--just about anywhere, are the standard-rotating ones.

Thanks!

Giantcod sell some, which are not too bad. Have had a few hit English winter soil which is usually mud and they have survived.

5x3 from Hobbyking are really badly balanced and fragile
5x3 from micron radio control in the UK arent much better
5x3x3 from Goodluckbuy balance well

I've also got some from GiantCod, and quite a few from Flyduino (http://flyduino.net/Propellers ).

I believe that they're the same make (GemFan?) from each supplier.

Also depends which country you're in - GiantCod is in the UK, Flyduino is in Germany.
