Brock blades?

Brock blades?

Jany: Would Brock rotorblades work for you, or only Bensen blades?

I thought I read recently something about a guy in southern California buying the Brock family's rotorblade jigs. Anyone know who/what? I cannot recall. I just now searched through the several 2016 El Mirage threads to no avail...

Also, Mike Groshans, in Texas, puts out the digital SOUTHWESTERN ROTORCRAFT newsletter. There usually is an ad in the back pages showing someone who is manufacturing the blades asking somewhere around $1,400 for a set.

Hi Kevin I know the guy who bought the blade mill to produce brock blades but I'm not sure if he made any sets yet.
It does not mater if its brock or bensen ,they are the same blades anyway .

Jan:
On my B7, I fly a set of Bensen blades and hub bar; only to keep it original.
The Bensens' are really great air pumps; and verrrrrry draggy!
They fly well and I was always pleased with them; primarily because that is all I knew. I have flown some other similar machines with other blades, and WOW what a difference!!!
I prefer the performance of a Dragonwing, but I would settle for any other modern blade. A lot less drag and that translates to a better preforming machine at the same HP.

While at Wrens, we used a cordless drill motor to pre-spin the Phenix blades, we could only get about 65 RRPM because the battery was almost dead. I had to reteach myself how to spin the blades up from there. What I found, was the very slow taxi speed caused them to sail better. So, I wasted the first trip up the runway; I turned around and back taxied and kept them spinning, when I turned around and went for the takeoff run the blades come up flight speed pretty quick. Keep in mind, this was the first flight for this gyro; so I was not getting aggressive with it. I was trying to listen to what the rotor was telling me. Once comfortable, I lifted off. It all felt great, so I (to Barneys' amazement) took it around the patch.

I don't know what those blades sell for, but I think they are very easily hand startable.
I was amazed at how smooth the blades flew, NO stick shake at any airspeed or G load.
