Do nt worry be happy,
Dr Bensen in his Bensen Flying News, (March 1980 number 8) had this adv.
I do nt think that Bensen had sold 5000 gyros at that time but, because
most of the pilots teached themselves to fly....... an extra pair of blades
was common....

Great to see that your back on it Dan. One of these weekends that your going to be working on it, give me a call, I'll come by, if for nothing else I can give some moral support.

take the gyro to a instructor and get checked out in it before trying to fly again.

Good! It is not to say you can't handle it on your own, but it can't hurt to get checked out and have the machine checked out before going on your own again. It has to be cheaper than another set of blades! Those Golden butterflys are massive machines and probably a little harder to " Feel " everything it is doing in comparision to a smaller lighter machine. Getting some help learning that feel would be money well spent.
