Many of us are flying with the Airmodels 25x12 3-blade. The Mejzlik is essentially the same prop. Desert sells them. Not cheap, but a great match for the DA 100.

Does anyone make a 24x10 or 25x10 3-blade? I plan on switching to 3-blade after break-in. I'm running in cowl mufflers, not canisters. Reason for the 10 pitch is this: A club member has a DA-100 using a Fuchs 24(or 25)x 12 and it carries way too much speed when landing. Idle seems right and it slows up just fine with the 2-blade 27x10. Any thoughts or other recomendations?

Beila makes a 26X10 three blade. Hollow carbon fiber with wood hub insert painted white with red tips.

Mejzlik makes a very nice 24x12 3-blade. It is not enough prop for the DA 100. I run one on a ZDZ 80 single on a tow plane. On that engine it is perfect.

The Airmodel or Mejzlik 25x12 3-blade is perfect on the DA 100. Including mine I know of at least 6 others running this prop/engine combo. It is very nice.

I have also run the Menz 26x12 3-blade wood. It also works OK, but the 25x12 is way better as far as acceleration and noise is concerned.

Call Desert. If they do not have it in stock then go with the Airmodels 25x12. They are essentially the same prop. Don't get hung up on the brand. Both are very well made and perform superbly on the DA 100.

I've run both the Mejzlik and Air Models 25x12's and I can't tell a difference. Both work great for IMAC and provide plenty of pull, acceleration and downline braking. I found the Air Models a little bit quieter. I tried an AM 26x12, didn't like it as much. the 25x12 is THE 3-blade for a DA-100 unless you have a very light airplne.
