I wanted to know more about Monte Hoskin Blades.
Does it fly well?
Are they really more sophisticated than the Bensens?
Where can I get plans of it?

You are probably not getting any response because we never heard of Monte Hoskin's blades.
Are these kit blades?
Good luck !

If memory serves, these were plans built wood blades. At one time Monte offered the plans included with his RV-3 gyro plans. (?)

I've got one of his video tapes for the 3D-RV at the first of it he shows the first blades he made and some later one's flying not a lot about them thought.
try to contact "Sonny",he's a member on this forum and knows a little more about the wooden blades of Monte Hoskins.
They (the blades:) don't require "special things" like the tapered steel spar and the two dimensional cone shape of the wood spar onto which the LE is glued with the Bensen blades.
Monte flew his own blades and they seemed to work OK.
A lot cheaper and easier to make than composite and/or metal blades.
