Hi Phil,
You need to indicate your country in your profile so we can give a meaningful response.
Here in the States, Hobby Lobby is good, also North East Sailplane (NSP)
Good luck,
Pete

I would strongly urge anyone not to consider for a moment buying cheap Chinese folding props, they have been known to shed blades very easily, not worth the risk. You'll shoot yer eye out, kid

I have to agree in part,the plastic hub types are downright dangerous at rpms above 8k as my metal workshop wall will prove .
but in all fairness the newer metal hub type made by Hy and also stocked by United Hobbies are a different animal and have a 2.8mm collet wich i use a 3mm reamer on. cheers. ps they set up good for pushers also by reversing the blades.
