I told you, one set is on my CX2 and the other is on my Lama 4. I figured with all you're going through, you might need a chuckle - for FREE!
The Acro Phase II's came from Lee. They are $10 for the blades and $6 for S&H ( shipping and handling, not the stamps). The Airy's came from HeliPal, if I'm not mistaken, but may be available elsewhere too.

I admitt I charge $6 for shipping. But in my defence let me say this...

Gas for car to get to the post office. Couple of bucks.
Actuall cost to ship. Around $5 give or take sometimes
If I can't go myself, I have to bribe Miss Tina to do it for me. McD chicken biskit. $2

That puts me around $8/9 give or take. Guess what that means. If someone orders just one set of blades. I lose money. No profit margin to work with. I am just trying to share a good thing with you guys/gals. I only sell what I believe in and fly personally. And when someone orders multiple sets of blades or even other parts I have, I still only charge the standard $6 for shipping.

Happy Flying. Lee

By that remark, I meant not S&H GREEN stamps. I know, you're too young to know about those.

You decided to just swoop right in on your Sopwith Camel?
I remember you could get a 1968 Road Runner for 3,000 S&H Green Stamp books.

I handle all my shipping through stamps.com.

Average cost to ship a single set of blades in a bubble wrap envelope to any location in the U.S. including the cost of the envelope, the printed label, and shipping is around $2.50. I drop the packages in my mailbox and don't have to drive to the post office.

The subscription cost for stamps.com is $18 a month. According to your numbers that would mean that by using stamps.com for two shipments the money you'd save in gas and biscuits would easily cover the monthly subscription fee.

I converted a cx2 into a stabile indoor stock like copter for Miss Tina's Christmas present. Put esky lama brick on it for her. Pod and boom style. Gave it to her two nights ago. She loves it. Lee

I ordered my alum swash, got it.. then thought I should just do the whole lower rotor head in alum and add the folding blade grips while I am at it.. so waiting on those now.. hopefully they'll be here soon..

The folding blade mod is a necessity. Mine has the Xtreme composit grips. It has replaceable bushings on the pivot pins.
