Default Help finding the right rotor blades

Hi, I'd like to get new rotor blades for my helicopter, since one of the original ones is broken.

Here's the problem: I can't find these blades or the helicopter anywhere, aside from ONE strange Thai site, which is also where the helicopter was purchased from and given to me. What I've gathered from that is that it's some strange Thai knockoff.

We purchased new blades but they have the wrong curvature and the helicopter won't take off at all.

The original blades are 220 mm long and weigh 13 grams. They look like this:

Some pictures of the helicopter and the (broken-off) nose (I apologise for the horrible picture quality):

The helicopter itself is about 50 cm long.

It seems to me that it's probably impossible to find the right blades since I have no clue what the model of the helicopter is and the only parts of it that I've found are on this Thai site:
- http://www.thipshop.com/index.asp?ID...20GF-3%203.5ch (The blades are at the bottom of the page)

If anyone could give any insight, I would really appreciate it!

Well there is an English version of that website where you could,order the blades except they're out of stock http://www.thipshop.com/index.asp?ID...0Spare%20Parts

These type of toy helis are known as 'mall helicopters' and many different types are sold in Asian,shops, all made in China. There aren't really any equivalent type of blades in more mainstream models so you probably will have email admin@thipshop.com this shop in Khon Kaen and ask if they can get you some - very likely the owner will speak English but if you draw a blank pm me and I'll get my Thai wife to call and ask them. If you'v been bitten by the bug check out a local model store and check,out what alternatives helis they have.

Yeah, I figured as much. I sent the admin an email and am waiting for a reply.
