Sensenich Fixed-Pitch Propellers
Sonex continually tests new propellers for the various factory-supported engine and aircraft combinations. To date, Sonex has tested roughly 50 different propellers for these combinations. The recommended Propellers below yielded the best performance from this flight testing.
One propeller company, Sensenich, stands-out in our experience as offering the best performance, price and service. Sensenich uses CNC-Machining technology to ensure all production Propellers are the same as the propellers tested by Sonex. Their Custom-Designed Props fit the Sonex, Waiex, Xenos, and Onex Spinner and Cowl Hub.
Sonex also recommends using fixed-pitch wood or wood core with composite coating. These props are a light-weight, reliable, and affordable option for your Sonex Aircraft.
Wood props are offered with a Natural Wood Finish with Red Safety Stripes at prop tips, and Matte Black finish on back of propeller.
Wood props have a Matte Black finish on back of propeller and are available with three finish options:
- Natural Wood Clear Varnish with Red Safety Stripes at prop tips
- Black Finish
- Black Finish with White Safety Stripes at prop tips
Composite Coated, or "glass" props have a Matte Black finish on the back of propeller and are available in any combination (body vs. tips) of the following colors:
