I am looking for a prop for one of these http://extremeflightrc.com/91-Extra-300-RedWhiteBlack_p_495.html the recommended is a Xoar 24 x 12 wooded, but can't seem to find one in the UK.

What other makes are their which are good quality?

Falcon props supplied by Steve the PropGuy. Very good prices and always in balance, more can be said for most of the Menz props i've had over the years.

I have tried my local model shop many times, I have even gone out of my way to get stuff from them but they never have what I want / need.

You don't need an electric! True it would be a bit lighter - but frankly at this size you are fine with the gas one! I often us so-called "gas" or "IC" props on electric powered models.

I've always thought it was OK to use props intended for IC on electric models but not vice versa because electric specific props are less robust and usually lighter.

I agree. It would be stiffer and have more "flyweel effect" both of which would be beneficial.

If you intend to to 3D . The flying style this model is designed for. you want the lightest prop you can get so you don't get flywheel wffect . It wants to be both de and accelerating as fast as possible .

For large electric props, try fiela sold by electric wingman. Superb and much stronger than those already mentioned esp around the tips.

When compared to even the lightest IC wooden prop they are superior. Lightness is essential to keep the amp draw down.
