looking for plastic propellers for rubber power!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi,

I'm in a model airplane crisis. I am doing a workshop showing children how
to fly rubber powered planes but I don't have enough of those red plastic
propellers.

Sorry for a cross post but I am aware that the kinds of stores that carry
what I'm looking for also carry RC planes and/or RC cars.

I desperately need some propellers. Or some mechanism of making them that is
really easy. I know the whole business of strapping the balsa onto a coke
can but that particular technique might be a bit much for younger children.

I'm looking for a store that has them. If anyone sees them or has any that
they can sell, please contact me!

I know I can "contact the local" hobby store, but I've done all that. I've
been phoning around and I can't seem to find any. Everywhere I've found has
them on "back order" with no known fulfilment date.

So if you see them please tell me the store where you saw them so I can
attempt to telephone them and have them sent over.

The Sig 5 inch (or 5.5 inch) is great. I'll also settle for the Peck
Polymers or the Guillows as well. The Peck is the best but they don't ship
with the plastic thing that you stick on the front of the plane to hold it
in place as far as I know.

There are pictures of all these at:
http://www.calmdays.com/h/c2/default...itc+Propellers

You have to register at that site to see them (or just email me and I'll
send you the pictures).

Is Peck Polymers still in business? They sold a number of items for small,
rubber-powered aircraft. Do a Google search for them.
