Aerostar products are renowned for their excellent high quality airplane components. Their accessory line is further enhanced with this series of laminated cherry wood propellers designed primarily for gas engine applications. However as the power of brushless motors continues to grow the demands on the propellers you use gets greater and greater so these propellers would also be excellent on these higher powered electric motors.
These high quality laminated cherry wood propellers are precision machined for efficiency and almost perfect balance straight out of the package. Pre-drilled with a slightly under size propeller shaft hole, this allows you to ream to the exact diameter of your gas engine crankshaft. For added safety and good looks we have painted the tips of each propeller red so that you can see the prop arc when your engine is running. Each propeller is finally finished with super tough lacquer that seals the wood to provide years of use.
Aerostar offers a wide range of sizes and pitch combinations of these propellers to suit most airplanes from parkflyers all the way up to giant scale airplanes.

I now own a series of the Laminated Cherry wood props, this 14x10 being the latest. Every one of them is gorgeous. Not only are they beautiful to look at, but they are also some of the best performing props I've ever tested. They make good thrust when spun fast, and when kept slower (under 10,000 rpm) they are the most efficient in terms of thrust per watt I've tested (relative to similar performing props, i'm not counting the slow-fly stuff here). They perform pretty similar to the Master Airscrew props, but usually consume less power. The blades have been near-perfectly balanced right out of the box, however the hubs usually have a slight imbalance. Not a big deal as the hub is far less significant than the blades, and I'd feel confident running any of them without balancing.
These are more expensive than most other props HK sells, but it absolutely shows. I think these are some of the best performing and best looking props money can buy, at any price.These props are absolutely gorgeous and the sound from the real Wood is simply amazing, such a smooth realistic sound. Sounds less electric and more like a recip. Every time nose over and split one of these props and have to run a plastic I get very upset. You will likely have to run a long prop adapter on most electric motors for this.
