    Quality

    Here at Airmaster we are very proud of the quality of our products. We believe they are the best available in the market today. Easy words to say, but here are some specific areas where Airmaster designs excel.

     

    Hub |BladesControllersExtensionsSpinners | Sliprings


    One Piece Hub

    All Airmaster propellers are designed using a single hub shell. The single shell design is able to distribute stresses evenly within the hub material making a stronger, safer propeller.

    Painted Hub Outer

    Each Airmaster propeller is fully machined on the inside, and protected on the outside with two pot epoxy paint. We specifically do not anodise the exterior of stressed parts to reduce the likelihood of fatigue cracking, ensuring a long product life.

    Modular Design

    All propellers conform to a modular design approach. Each major assembly comes out as a complete unit, and there is a high degree of compatibility between product groups. This gives a high degree of option flexibility and greatly simplifying servicing operations

    Precision Pitch Change

    Airmaster use a proprietary thread design with a closely matched, phosphor bronze guided nut to minimise backlash and inter blade pitch error. This ensures smooth, flutter free operation for the entire life of the propeller.

    Ultra Quality PC Motor

    Pitch change actuation is achieved with ultra-precision DCX servo gear-motors from Maxon (Switzerland). These motor drives are simply unsurpassed in build quality and long life performance.  More on Maxon>

    Easily Adjusted Pitch Change Stops

    Individual pitch stops are provided for the Fine / Coarse / Feather limits. All the pitch stops are easily adjusted from within the top of the hub to allow each propeller to be tailored to the specific conditions of your engine and flying environment.

     

    Blades


    Fully Composite Blades

    Airmaster only selects the worlds finest quality blades for use in their propellers. All blades are fully composite construction (not wood) and have been verified by Airmaster as being suitable for their intended use.

     
     

    Leading Edge Protection

    Every blade in an Airmaster propeller incorporates in-built leading edge protection to shield the blade from air borne particles that can cause erosion. Most commonly it is electroformed Nickel, but Stainless Steel is also used along with other materials.

    High Strenth Blade Retention

    Each blade is held within the hub by a high strength steel ferrule. Besides having a high tensile rating, high strength steel is less susceptible to fatigue, ensuring the blade will be safely retained over its entire life.

     

     

     

    Controllers


    Easy to Operate

    The AC-200 electronic governor is extremely easy to operate with simple selection of engine speeds for the common modes of flight, Take Off, Climb and Cruise.  Further speed adjustment is possible by the use of the Hold function which selects engine speed in a similar way that cruise control is used in a car.

    • Simple selection for T.O. Climb and Cruise
    • Hold speed adjustable in flight
     
     

    Precise Speed Control

    Advanced software techniques are used within the AC200 controller to achieve fast and precise speed control, that are just not available in traditional propeller governors.  

    • Fast pitch change rates 4deg/s
    • High reliablity solid state construction
    • Field updateable software and parameters

    Instant Pilot Feedback

    The pilot is always aware of the correct propeller operation, thanks to the clear feedback indicators.  The unobtrusive but meaningful display confirms correct movement of pitch change mechanism, when a pitch limit is reached, confirmation that a speed signal is present, as well as any possible fault indication

    • Clear indication of propeller status
    • Advanced warnings of possible faults
     
     

    Customisable

    The AC200 is an extremely versatile control system that can be used with a wide variety of engine types.  All parameters are configurable including the engine set speeds which can be set by the user with any Windows PC.  In addition the controller can communicate with external telemetry systems (as used for UAV operation).  Operational data can also be logged for service purposes.

    • Programmable operating speeds
    • Fully configurable to different engine types
    • Logging functions
    • UAV telemetry options

    • AN bolts
    • Nordlock washers

    Simple Installation

    Included with each extension assembly are specialist tools that simplify insertion and extraction of the propeller flange drive lugs.

    Choice of Finish

    The ideal finishing touch to your aircraft is a perfectly formed spinner. Airmaster spinners are available in a number of finishes. Highly polished aluminium, matte aluminium ready for painting by you, or painted gloss white by us.

    • Highly polished

    • Fully cut and finished
    • Precisely balance
     
     

    Precise Fit

    To ensure the spinner remains completely centralised, an adjustable front support is incorporated into the head of the hub. This can be used to completely eliminate any lateral play in the spinner cone, reducing any possible stress on the spinner backplate.

    • Fully supports front of spinner
    • Reduced fatigue on spinner backplate

    Secure

    All spinner mounting screws are anchored by aviation grade riveted nut plates to ensure vibration does not work the screws loose.

    • Fully locks securing screw

     
     

    Easy Install

    All Airmaster backplates have pre-drilled holes in convenient locations to accept balance weights, making dynamic balancing a breeze.
