Welcome to APC
Model Aircraft Propellers
“Quality Propellers that are Competition Proven”
APC propellers are used worldwide
by top competitors.
APC model aircraft propellers have enjoyed strong acceptance and growth since their introduction in 1989. They are especially popular with advanced sport pilots, and in aerobatic and racing events. APC propellers are used worldwide by top competitors. Multi-rotor aircraft have also taken advantage of the superior performance of APC propellers. In 2017, the DRL set the Guinness World Record for ground speed with an FPV quad-copter using APC propellers. The performance and low noise advantages are largely due to the precision methods used to design and manufacture APC propellers.
APC preserves a close rapport with the competitive aviation community to benefit from the technical interchange that is so important to improving designs. There is continuous evolution in aircraft design and engine performance. Consequently, propeller designs must continuously evolve to keep pace with changing technologies. APC excels at providing the model aviation community the right propellers for a wide range of applications.
“ Propeller designs must continuously evolve to keep pace with changing technologies. ”
Over 500 APC propeller sizes are currently available. The selection is continuously expanding. Current sizes range from 4-inch diameters to 27-inch diameters. APC propellers are made from composite materials using long glass fibers or long carbon fibers with a Nylon matrix. This web site maintains a current listing of available selections. Please check the Products page for a listing of currently available propeller sizes. An Excel file is also available for download on the Technical Info page.
APC has added expanded manufacturing capability to permit injection molding of larger single piece two blade propellers, up to 27 inch diameters. Three and four blade designs, up to 16 inch diameters, are also available. In addition, APC has the ability to design and manufacture custom propellers, and machine tooling for hand-laid fiber propellers. Please contact us for more information.
Multi-Rotor propellers are now in full production. The same precision and superior performance available in other APC propellers has been extended to the MR blade designs which offer substantial improvement in performance for multi-rotor aircraft.
As always, APC propellers are proudly manufactured in California using domestic materials.
