I'm building a yard ornament. It's a heli that weathervanes on a pole in the yard and the main rotor (and body) are at a forward angle so that the blades are driven by the wind. (from the top) That way it looks as if its flying forward, and also if it was tilted backwards, a stiff breeze might drive the blades into the boom or something. Hopefully, I can find a way to keep the nose into the wind, either by having a long tailboom with a large fin in back or by the mounting point of the post. I think it may act wierd due to gyroscopic forces.

I am using a bicycle hub, U-bolted to a simple frame

Anyway.. the WANTED ad is for anyone who has some .30 size or larger (550mm+ I believe) main rotor blades that they want to let go of cheap. They can be split or something otherwise unsafe for helis since these will never be used for actual flight, only the yard ornament. Fiberglass will resist the elements best, but I can paint woodies or coat them with polyurethane or something similar if the covering is damaged.

ALSO an old canopy would go a long ways towards making it look good. It can be cracked, I'll just fiberglass it inside and paint it to suit me. When I am finished I will post pics!

I have some old 550 woodies that may work for your project. The roots were glued on wrong. Shoot me a PM if you want them and we will figure out how to get them over to you.

You might want to look at buying a new set of World Models fiberglass blades. The 550s are only $28, and would certainly resist the elements.

WOW

RunRyder amazes me everytime I place an ad. You guys are great thank you very much.

Well I have several blade contributors, so I believe I am set in that area. If anyone now has a canopy or an idea for crafting one that would look nice I would appreciate it.

Everything else can be made from steel tubing and aluminum plate. I will post photos on this site when the project is done.

Thanks again everyone,
Mark

I have a couple of crashed fury canopies. Some are in better shape than others. I would take 10 bucks a piece for them.
