Default Aero Prop

Aero Prop is a great efficient and quiet propeller design with leading edge stainless steel plate riveted permanently to the blade for protection and a swooped winglet tip for quiet operation

These look like nice props but since the smallest diameter they offer is 67", not many gyros can accommodate them.

Default Nice Prop.

Looks good, but 67"? A bit much.

Bye-The-Bye....I've seen several props with the scimitar blades. Any vendors for those anywhere?

The Prince p-tip is a very nice GA proven prop. It is what I'm planning to use - all 68" of it!

We use the Aero prop on the Genesis. They are really good props!!!! not as tough as the warpdrives but much lighter, less vibrations and high performers. We have from 64" diameter. a 3 blade prop we sell for 630 Euros (US$ 840).

we also sell warpdrives at the exact price tyhat the factory sells.

For our Customers and Forum members we we offer 5% discount on both aero and warpdrive props.

Thanks for the info, Nicolas. Do we go through All_In (John), for those of us in North America, for this Rotary Forum discount?

Nicolas,
I'm curious how much cavitation (flex) the Aero has compared to the same size Warp Drive.
I know the W/D is much sturdier and has very little flex. Just wondering how much fore/aft movement there is in the Aero from low to high rpm's. Any Idea??

It will be faster if you email me for any inquiries... When we finally be able to have stock in the USA then you should be contacting the USA Agent.

contacting John will also work as he will forward your email to me.

Mark the Aero prop is cleverly designed!!! the blades have a slight tilt forward so centrifugal force is trying to bend them back. This fights the the forward bend from thrust. the overall flex is within 1/2" - 3/4".
