The VL3 is the fastest ultralight in the world. Very comfortable and very pleasant to fly.
This aircraft can be equipped with the E-Props ground adjustable pitch propeller (DURANDAL) and the E-Props inflight variable pitch propeller (GLORIEUSE).
We now have 180 hours on the log with the Glorieuse. Nothing to report, except that it is still a great pleasure to fly, very smooth and reactive. High pitch - small pitch in less than 3 seconds: it is really impressive.
Congratulations to the whole team for this achievement.
Finally I found the perfect propeller for my VL3!
This Glorieuse propeller is simply a marvel of engineering; a careful design - it seems that it took the designer 5 years, but we understand why! - an incredible lightness and solidity - see the tests, it's very telling - and a piloting comfort like I never had. The fuel consumption is down, the performance is up, in any case I'm more than satisfied.
Long life to the Glorieuse!
Exactly what I expected. My co-owner and I are satisfied with everything: the assembly, the adjustment, the advice and of course the propeller itself which transforms our 100hp VL3.
The propeller pitch control is very fast. One has the impression that nothing happens but nevertheless no jerks and no variation of rpm.
I had a variable pitch propeller WOODCOMP. I changed for a fixed pitch EPROP. I didn't lose anything in performance on my VL3.
So there, E-Prop, you did a great job. This Constant Speed propeller is a real joy to use. No vibrations, short take-offs even on rough ground, speed 272 km/h, rate of climb 1500 ft/min, in short the best propeller for all flights. I am really very happy.
Impressive: this variable pitch prop is the fastest propeller ever tested on my VL3. Great reactivity and smoothness.
This 'Glorieuse' is a much better propeller than the two-blade wood-comp I had before on my VL3. It's just night and day in performance, vibration, responsiveness, smoothness, lightness. It's awesome.
WOW! This variable pitch Glorieuse on my VL3, it is exceptional! I can't believe how fast my VL3 is and how quickly it takes off. So classy!
Hello there, it flies on my VL3.
I don't recognize the machine anymore !
It's really great, it takes off short and it lands shorter too.
The best Constant Speed propeller I have ever tested on my VL3. No vibration at all, impressive responsiveness, and finally I reach the maximum speed of my aircraft. Impressive! Congratulations Jeremie, that's a great job!
I tested a competitor 3-blade that I was told was good, but it was definitely not as good as my Eprop, especially the titanium version.
Eprop is a piece of cake.
Exactly what I was looking for: simple, light, powerful. The ideal propeller for my VL3.
Very satisfied with my e-props propeller on the VL3. Despite the detractors who don't understand anything and don't even try this propeller is as efficient as the variable pitch ones on the market. Maybe you will be able to do better with the upcoming variable pitch? We'll see! Keep it up you're right!
I've been using this eprop with its titanium protection for over a year on my land where pebbles grow. My VL3 does not have a great ground clearance. I was afraid of impacts.
I am very satisfied, no marks on the leading edge, and still the performance of my eprop. Perfect!
For the price of the overhaul of a woodcomp lose more than 7kg to do exactly the same.
Without hesitation it is the best propeller for the VL3. No complexity as with a variable pitch, lighter than all other propellers which gives it an incomparable reactivity in the evolutions, an affordable price, a design and a manufacturing with high quality carbon and titanium. It's my choice for my VL3.

All is said !
Replacement of my VP woodcomp propeller with your ground adjustable eprop. The same performances with a big weight saving and a lot of simplicity. Excellent.
Beautiful propeller with this Titanium reinforcement. Perfect for my VL3. Thank you for your advice.

I just saw that you're finally offering blades with metal leading edge protection! Well done! I was looking forward to it. And on top of that, in Titanium, great class. I'll order right away.
Considering the qualities of your adjustable propellers, I'm looking forward to your variable pitch model for my VL3. It's going to rock !
Thank you for your advice which I applied today, I increased the propeller pitch by 0.9° and obtained 5450 rpm in static and 5580 rpm full stabilized power.
Here are all data fo my comparison tests between the E-Props and the Peszke
I would also like to thank you for the complements of the order :
- your very clear guide,
- the very easy to use adjustment kit,
- the specific documentation for my machine,
- the keychain,
- the cap...
the kit was very well packed and easy to assemble.
I'm delighted with this propeller.
thanks to the whole team

Congrats for the high quality of your propellers made in France. TOP OF THE RANGE!
No difference between your propeller and the variable pitch I had before on my VL3. I was skeptical. I'm stunned.
When will we see the eprops in-flight variable pitch? It's gonna be a hit.

Thank you for the repair of the blade. It is undetectable.
I have seen the new leading edge protection with a tape in addition to the internal one.
I appreciate because I often fly under rain in my country.
I really LOVE your props.
I had a woodcomp variable pitch propeller on my VL3. I have the same performance with your fixed pitch eprop. I don't understand how that's possible, but it's very pleasant. Congrats to you.
On my VL3 I previously had a propeller named PESZKE. The leading edge was damaged. I asked the Polish factory, but no answer.
I switched to a EPROPS 3blades DURANDAL because one of my friends had one. I am very pleased with the performances and efficiency and lightness. The leading edge has a strong protection inside.
Great product, to be recommended.
In travel as in local flights, my eprop is as efficient as my variable pitch propeller, without the constraints of a variable pitch prop, and lighter to remain in ultralight standards. Perfect. Just what I was waiting for.
I must confess that I didn't believe in your commercial arguments - but with the money-back guarantee I wasn't taking any risks - and I was curious to see what your approach, so different from the competition, was like. Your blades are so thin - it's amazing.
After testing and comparison - see attached xls file - I can tell you this: you've made your move.
Not only do I keep this propeller that gives me great satisfaction, but I'm going to advertise it to you. I am glad to see that it is still possible to innovate in our country. Keep up the good work.
