APC model aircraft propellers have enjoyed strong acceptance and growth since their introduction in 1989. They are especially popular with advanced sport pilots, and in aerobatic and racing events. APC propellers are used worldwide by top competitors. Multi-rotor aircraft have also taken advantage of the superior performance of APC propellers. In 2017, the DRL set the Guinness World Record for ground speed with an FPV quad-copter using APC propellers. The performance and low noise advantages are largely due to the precision methods used to design and manufacture APC propellers.
