Title: Flyzone propellers for their Micro Nieuport & SE5a?
Post by: artbykenb on May 08, 2014, 06:18:39 PM
What is the problem with Flyzone not making spare propellers available? All online Flyzone vendors selling the micro airplane propellers are out-of-stock.  We broke the propeller on our Nieuport  and went looking in the internet. NOBODY has the Flyzone propellers available for their micro airplanes!  Maybe I should carve one out of wood?  :-)

Ken,
What's the motor shaft diameter?
Will these work?

Dang! That's the propeller(S) I need!  You were able to do within a few hours what I couldn't do for weeks.  Thank you very much. I've ordered several sets hoping that Hobby Hobby doesn't later tell me that they don't have any. ;-)  One vendor did just that.

Thanks again,
KenB

I sure hope that they have them 'in stock'.
I'll feel bad if they don't.

And I'll feel even more sadder if you feel sad. LOL  All seriousness aside, folk, not to worry. If they have 'em they'll send my order. If they don't have 'em - what the hey?

Hi Dave. Guess what?

I ordered 5 pair of Flyzone propellers from Hobby Hobby had they had only 3 on hand and can't (?) order more.  Their (Hobby Hobby) updates and customer service is the best I've experienced from on-line RC "hobby shops".  NONE of the big US RC stores even answered my emails!  Hobby Hobby has sent 4 order updates TODAY!

They'll have my business. Thanks for letting me know about them.  Flyzone is on my S--T list for whatever that's worth.

Ken,
That's great news. I guess I got lucky with good old Google.

Looks like this guy bought the wrong ones?

I has heading toward the "wrong" prop myself. The proper prop (whut?) is VERY hard to find. Absurd!

Hello,
Not to bust the thread but I am trying to find replacement wing struts for the Flyzone Nieuport, I'm about ready to carve my own!
