Need prop and gear hardware - canít find

Default Need prop and gear hardware - canít find

Ok fliers, I have an airfield 1450mm p51 that was given to me a present probably 5 years ago (I think)
It is a 6 channel version with retractable gear and all other surface controls

Yesterday, during initial taxi, all was fine. I lined up and began to get into the throttle. I had to input some rudder to keep it straight, then the left side gear collapsed prior to take off.

I still need to inspect the gear to see if itís something I can repair or if I need to replace it, but the individual props (all 4) are now broken.

Heres my problem-this plane may have been discontinued. Everywhere I look for ďairfieldĒ parts, is out of stock with no return mentioned.

Is there another make/model where the gear and ESPECIALLY the props are interchangeable?? I personally donít care about the wheel pants or doors right now. They donít make the plane fly or roll.

If I need to replace the spinner base to install a different style blade, thatís fine, but I canít find dimensions for other versions/makes/models such as FMS etc

Any help in this would greatly appreciated

The prop shouldn't be hard to manage. If you have to switch to a 3 blade, go up one inch in diameter.
Eflite has electric retracts that may require drilling new holes for mounting. I'd definitely replace both if I were you.
