Default Kellett blades

I have a kellett from A of A and had a accident where the blades were broken. I want to get it back in the air but A of A seems to be out of business. Does anybody know where I can get a set of replacements. I already checked at aerobalsa and their 36" blades are out of stock.

You could try and find some Sig Airfoil blanks at your local Hobby Shop.. If that don't work I may have a set.

Our LHS is not good for specialty items (Hobbytown USA). I looked at Sigs website but their search is not bringing anything up.What are the dimensions of your blanks?

Thanks.
Chris

Never had any luck with finding blades so I ordered some airfoil shaped balsa from Sig. A friend of mine is a master with fiberglass and carbon fiber so he made me some new blades. Here are some pics from the first flight with the new blades!

Jodini,

I just ordered thru paypal Dag 60 and PCA-2 plans from you. Will you still be around for questions should I have any while building them? I hate that you guys are calling it quits. First AofA and now you guys! Where are we supposed to get autogyros from now?
