Default Three-blade props

Where can I find a selection of three-blade props around 15 or 16 inch diameter with 6 to 7 degrees of pitch. also spinners that will work with them. Can't seem to find much about them on the net. Trying to make a PC-6 Turbo porter look a little better. Thanks guys, MM

I have great luck with Graupner props, scale look and they perform well. I also order my spinners from Dave Brown, they cut them to your need

Go to www.towerhobbies.com and type in Master Airscrew. They have the props you need. I have a 14x7 on my Seagull .91 Extra 260 and my O.S .91FX Ringed loves it! I like to buy Tru-Turn Nose cones, they all fit. All you need to do is order a adaptor that's seperate from thew nose cone, that fits your engine size so you can use a Tru-Turn.

I also like the Graupners, does DB charge extra for the cutting??? At one point TruTurn was doing it for free but I guess it was only for a short time?

No they don't, it's the same price if you bought a stock spinner. My flying mentor has a T34 with a 3 blade Master Airscrew prop, I told him about Graupner and he said his MA was good enough. Finally I convinced him to try the prop I ahd on my plane, we have the same motor, Saito 120. Well, he ordered some Graupner props after that. He said the Graupner pulled much better than the MA and it looked better on the T34

Any good websites for Graupner ? Tower does not seem to have the bigger three blades I need. Dave Brown will work for spinners. MM

Graupner is available from http://www.hobby-lobby.com As with most brands, selection is limited 14x7, 15x8, 16x8

Zinger http://www.zingerpropeller.com/3_bladed_Propeller.htm has a broad selection of sizes. They are pretty proud $$$$ of them.

Right: 15x8 and 16x8 are "relatively" close to what the original poster asked about (15x6 or 7, 16x6 or 7)
