Default Picolo FP Upgrades Help

My first helo, back in the day, was a CP Piccolo. I painfully learned to fly it until I totaled it. I then moved to a FP and logged countless hours of fun with it. When we moved, we somehow lost my beloved FP Picolo. It was fully upgraded with aluminum head, smash, Fiber blades, GY gyro, brushless, etc.

I did find my three brand new in box FP Piccolos. I went at it and installed a brushless motor, esc, Rx, gyro, bigger tail motor, and ball bearings. I’m having a real hard time with the plastic head, and main blades. I cut the blades down for higher rotor speed, but I really need either CF or FIber main blades and a way to stiffen the head.

I used to to know everything about these helos, but it has been 15+ years since I last messed with them. I think the upgrades blades were Hornet or something.

Any my ideas where I can get the blades, or perhaps an aluminum head. Oh, and I wouldn’t mind building one of the other ones totally stock, but would need a picoboard.

Thanks in advance.
