What brand props ??

Hi guys.
What brand of slowfly props do you recommend ?

On my lighter 3d planes Ive been using gemfan .Very cheap for a bag of 4, Cheap but do flex quite a bit
On a slighly heavier plane Id use APC SF (11x4.7)

Any other recommendations?
The gemfans & APC's are pretty much balanced as is.
Some of the HK SF props ive bought were just to out of balance to consider (ie crap)

I dont want carbon, as Id rather break a prop ,than bend a motor shaft
I really like the APC's, but they are $8 each locally . Gets a bit pricey when I break them and need to order in another 5 ( I allways get spares).

On the 32 inch planes I have had good luck with the gws props. The size most common for these planes is 8 x 4.3 slow fly or the 8 x 4 direct drive prop.

gem fan has the carbon filled ABS props that are super stiff and cheap, $1.50 US each for the 8" size


bigger than 10" go with E type prop IMO
