Question ,is AeroBals the only place to get Auto Gyro blades?

Is AeroBalsa the only company that makes Auto Gyro blades?
I ask , because I am now building a Begi ( Great design by the way. )
and now I'm thinking ( what if they stop building auto gyro blades?)
I don't think I could make them ,and I do like the blades I have ordered from AeroBals they look great!
What would we all do with out blades?
I hope AeroBalsa keeps making them for years!

I just recieved a set of 1.5 blades to use on my newly aquired RoterShape that I picked up at the Wram show. These blades are by far superior to the ones in the kit and are beautifully made.I also fly heli's and fixed wing this will be my first gyro and probably will get a Begi or scale job next.Yogi

You should consider adding a rudder to your Rotorshape. It does fly OK without it, but you'll find it easier with a rudder.

I will be using a movable rudder right from the get go and found the tail servo mounts from an Esky King2 fit the tail boom perfectly. I am in the intial building stages right now when I get a test flight in I'll report on the blade performance.Yogi
