The company HELIX Carbon GmbH develops and manufactures carbon fiber propellers since 1990 for a wide range of applications. Starting with a staff of three people propellers were developed for the paramotor and paramotor trike market. Today, Helix has 10 employees working on our 1000sqm facility at the Merzbrück airfield producing an average annual volume of 11,500 propeller blades for the paramotor and ultralight market in general.
Why a carbon fiber propeller?
Propellers made of carbon (carbon fiber reinforced plastic - CRC) have a long lifespan and can be repaired very well. By using the same mold, the blades are identical and reproducible, thus offering a high dimensional stability. Carbon fiber propellers do not react to moisture. So they not warp and also give a high dimensional stability. With better strength properties the carbon fiber propellers have high vibration compensation. The vibration of the engine is better absorbed and thus gives a smoother running.
