APC model airplane propellers have enjoyed strong acceptance and growth since their introduction in 1989. They are especially popular in pattern and racing events. The performance and low noise advantages are largely spawned by the precision methods Landing Products uses to design and manufacture APC propellers.
Landing Products preserves a close rapport with the competition community to benefit from technical interchange so important to improved designs. There is continuous evolution in aircraft design and engine performance. Consequently, propeller design must continuously evolve as well to keep pace with these improving technologies.
Over 300 APC propeller sizes are currently available. The selection is continuously expanding. Current sizes range from 5.5 X 2 up to 26 X 14 in composite materials using long chopped nylon fibers, carbon fibers and hand-laid fibers. This web site maintains a current listing of available selections. Please check the NEW PRODUCTS page for a listing of recently introduced sizes.
Landing Products has recently added expanded manufacturing capability to permit injection molding of even larger single piece propellers. Please note the selection of 3 and 4 blade propellers now in production. The same precision and performance available in the 2 blade line has been extended to 3 and 4 blade designs which offer substantial improvement in ground clearance. Look for expanded selections in the larger 2 blade propellers. Many of these will likely supplant some of the needs currently met with APC component systems which employ aluminum hubs in combination with individual composite blades.
