Propeller from China? No! [solved]
I recently saw that RS components is selling propellers. They are even cheaper than Mouser if you buy whole trays. What made me wonder is the "country of origin" (german "Ursprungsland") field on the bill. It says "China"!?
I thought propellers were produced by AMS (Austrian micro systems) and packed at the Phillipines then tested and sold in the USA. I don't care, politically, because most parts come from far east theese days. But if propellers are available for cheap in China then I have to re-think my copy protection strategy. So far, I haven't cared much because chinese board assembly houses refuse to use propellers because they have to pay import customs fees.
