contact xoar for retailers or contact tower hobbies. $70- $100 per prop. you have to drill out the mounting holes xoar are made in germany.

I'm waiting on a recoil starter but once I get it I will let you guys know how these work out.

With a set of blade covers and a polo shirt it was still under $180 a prop. If you didn't order the extras I did it would be under $150 each after shipping.
Very light weight (~350 grams) and only 8 grams difference between props.

Had a local gunsmith/machinist bore the 5/16" and 7/8" holes. he made me a drill guide for the 5/16" holes if anyone needs it.

It's my understanding (from the factory website) that the Mejxlik propellers are a hollow core propeller with a solid hub. Personally I would not consider the use of this propeller on a Lazair. A friend read on an RC forum that these props can disintegrate if they strike anything. Mounted on a Rotax 185 running at 5500+ RPM's, you might want to reconsider their use on the Lazair. Spend some extra money on a tried and proven propeller, Prince P-Tip 34x10's.
