Default rotor blade help

I received a Protocol Skyline RC copter for Christmas and promptly crashed it and broke one of the blades. There is virtually no way to contact the company for a replacement, only an email comment form.

I searched all the places Google and such offered and found some blades that looked to be the same, but were listed as being a different mfgr.

\My inclination is to think that this is a private branded brand name that is only interested in selling the unit and nothing more, but I would like to repair it at least long enough to learn to fly it.

Can anyone offer any advice as to where to get replacement blades?

My suggestion would be to look at Syma helis and see if there's one that closely matches what you have. It might be a re-branded Syma clone, but I couldn't find any detailed pics of it. Syma parts aren't too difficult to find.

As you can see, they don't want to give a phone #.  It will prolly take 2 or 3 weeks to get it if I have to mail them a check.  I think I will take your advice and see if I can find something at the local hobby shop under Syma.

That's probably not a bad deal for $10. I don't think you'll find much at a hobby store for Syma per se, but many parts are usedon the same helis. One shop told me they don't carry Esky parts, yet they had an exact copy of a blade holder I needed under two other barnd names, Eflite and HPI.

Hello;
My son was given a helicopter for Christmas, and while we operated we have a key and damage. He had a little fold of the tail, the tail engine broke. The helicopter model is a P-series Skyline Protocol. I wonder if you sell spare parts for the aforementioned helicopter. If not as I could get help by providing information. Also if you know if other pieces of similar models that are compatible. Will be grateful.
