Fly with the maximum performance possible from your aircraft. Shorter take-off distance, improved rate of climb, improved overall acceleration and increased range with reduced fuel burn.
AXSport Aviation has developed a range of propellers suitable for Jabiru 3300, Rotax 912/914 variants and Lycoming O-235/O-320 engines. The propeller is sold with the carbon fibre spinner, carbon fibre backing plate, constant speed controller, wiring loom and installation hardware.

The highly optimised propeller blades are designed in house by our aeronautical engineers. The propeller blades are constructed using proprietary design and process techniques with advanced epoxy systems and high strength carbon fibre to make the lightest and strongest blades possible. This design has been tested to exceed more than 4 times the blade retention load required by ASTM F2506. The back face of the blade is matte carbon finish, while the pressure face is painted white with high visibility colour tips to match your selected spinner colour.
- Computer designed, highly optimised blade aerodynamics
- Carbon epoxy blade construction with vibration damping structural foam core
- Low mass & rotational inertia, factory balanced for smooth, low vibration flight
- Carbon construction offers very long fatigue life
- Solid carbon fibre leading edge resists damage and is easily repairable if chipped
Propeller hubs are CNC machined from aircraft grade aluminium billet. Modern CAD and CAM software provides precision tolerances. The hubs have been designed for strength and long fatigue life as opposed to the lightest mass as hub failures invariably lead to the loss of the aircraft. The hub has two fixed pitch stops for safety and two adjustable microswitch pitch stops. The electric pitch change motor is bolted to the hub. The high torque motor drives the blades at 3 deg/sec. Long life brushes are installed in the brush block, which is easily mounted on the engine casing.
- Designed for safety, long fatigue life and blade retention strength.
- Easily installed and removed. Various mounting bolt arrangements available.
- Simple maintenance.
Constant Speed controller
The microprocessor driven constant speed controller provides precise and highly reliable constant speed control of the propeller RPM. The controller has been designed for simple and intuitive operation with LED’s and LCD display to ensure the pilot knows what the propeller is doing. The controller can automatically control propeller RPM in CS (constant speed) mode, or the pilot can manually control pitch in VP (variable pitch) mode.
The spinner is made from epoxy infused carbon fibre. It is extremely rigid, light weight, crack and corrosion resistant. Spinners are painted with aircraft grade polyurethane paint to match the blade tip colour. The spinner backing plates are press moulded carbon epoxy, making them extremely rigid and strong yet lightweight. The backing plate is the attachment point for the static balancing weights.
