Default props

Can someone please tell me who makes a 18x12 inch 4 bladed prop or any 4 bladed props besides solo props in canada. My problem is I need a tractor prop and a pusher prop.

Thanks

make your own out of wood props with some cut out of the hub then use carbon or kevlar tow to add the strength back to the hub. this will only be good on low rpm stuff. if its in a race plane then may just have to use tha candian props.

Also go up in pitch on the rear prop if its a twin inline plane. 18x12 infront and a 18x14 in the rear.

You may have to cut down the 20X12 pusher.
Have fun!

Just a bit of info for you, I did some talking to APC props when I was first looking for props and the few people I spoke to were very rude to me and not so helpfull but I did buy ther props for my plane(stupid on my part) anyways when I ran into my problem I called them to talk about it and agian they were not helpfull and pretrty much didnt care. I got the opposite at SOLO PROPS they were very helpful and nice. I did learn some stuff from them as well, when selecting a prop. Not trying to bash APC but I think if you sell a product you should stick behind it and you should know your products befor you just sell whatever.

I've spoken with Fred Bergdorf, the owner of APC many times when he was a customer of mine and maybe 6 times since I entered the hobby and I have found him to be friendly knowledgeable but to the point. Even thou thinking back, I had a stupid question, he was never kurt. Perhaps it was someone new he's bringing up that you spoke with, and If not, we all have our bad days.
