Default Carbon/Composite Propeller Manufacturers

Due to a need to initiate some propeller tests pretty soo I need to find out the names, and links if possible, of all the carbon/composite propeller manufacturers. I thought I knew the name of all of them but I don't want to be limited by any memory failures on my part. So if someone makes composite props in either 2 or 3 blade dimensions and you know of them, would you mind sharing?

Mexjlik, Bolly, Fuchs, Beila, 3W, Vess is working on them, Xoar has carbon tipped props. Those are the ones I can think of now.

Bolly closed up shop last year but that's real news about Vess contemplating entering the fray.

Thanks!

Pat,

ZM were some of the best (I don't believe TBM picked up the line when they bought RC Showcase unfortunately, but are closing out remaining stock),

Landing Products/APC has some custom carbon fabric props (entire line is "composite"),

Biela (hollow blades with a wood hub),

PT Models.

You probably should clarify whether "country of origin" is an issue.

Skip,

Yes, and thanks. In the sizes I tried they didn't work out all that well.

Brett,

Where to find the ZM is my next question. That's one I never heard of.

Although point of origin ultimately does matter, for the trials I can over look a few things.

Xoar has started a line of CF props as well. So far the only size available is the 22x10.

Sorry Pat, I didn't see your question.

TBM still has some props. They are made in the Czech Republic and are very good.
