Default No more chicom foamies for me

I bought the Flyzone DH Beaver. I had a little problem and broke the propeller, I have been waiting over two months for a new propeller.. Anyone know of a company in the USA I can get a thin prop for this thing, I am sort of new to electric flight.

In my opinion, all you'll get out of the chicom foamies and electrics in general is frustration. They're good for a first r/c plane, but they usually aren't very controllable, crash often and getting parts is usually difficult. You'd didn't say whether you are new to r/c or not, but if you are, the best thing to do is to get a normal (0.40 cu in) size trainer and take it to your local club field and get started with an instructor. You'll have a much better experience!

Buy another new prop off of tower. You don't need an OEM prop APC and master airscrew makes tons of electric props. Foamies a great for learning to fly on and ceap enough to buy another if you really bash it up.
