rats...I don't think I can finish my project in time to make it to the party now... I ran into a snag last night that ate up 1/2 of my Sunday. Had to go to Spruce today for some more 'luminum tube. Plan A gives way to plan B.

Fix the gyrobee instead, should be a quick repair on that one....

Hmm...If I can borrow a prop for the weekend, and buy a rotor from Ernie when I get there, it will work. I already have the Mast aluminum sitting here, and the old mast is off. It would be no problem to get the Bee back together in a few hours.

Does anyone have a prop I can borrow? I can't get a replacement delivered in time.

Greg,
Dad will have plenty of blades to choose from. What size are you going to need? I am thinking 23's.

Yes, have your dad bring a set of 23s, just in case I can dig up a prop donor for the weekend.
