I wanted some opinions on composite versus wooden propellers. Most of the flyers in two clubs I belong to prefer composite props (particularly APC sport props), but an engine I bought recommends wooden props instead.Wooden propellers are more fragile than composite (nylon/plastic/fiberglass) models, but they are also much easier to sand while trying to balance them.
Which kind of propellers (material and/or brand) do you like, and why?
Also, does anybody have any good advice for balancing plastic props that are way out of balance? Sanding away on a plastic Master Airscrew 10x6 prop with the same 200 grain sandpaper that I use to balance my wooden props seems like a waste of effort so far. I am likely to whittle the Master Airscrews down to nothing before they're reasonably well balanced.
