Hi Ron, I would like your opinion on rotor blades. I have a KB3 I have recently acquired. I have a Rotordyne blade set and a Benson blade set. I have not run the Benson blade set yet. If you had to choose between the two based on lift and overall performance which would you prefer?
HI Tom,, this is Jim Bauder from Massachusetts .. I talk to you a while back about my rotor head and blades..
I am interested in updating them . if you can,, you can reach me at (508) 801-8665.
Also I am interest in contacting Don Bouchard about my Subaru EA81..
Thanks,
Jim
