Default Problem with blades

Hi, everyone! I just recently bought a Gyro Explore RC Helicopter for my son. We are both beginners at this. During the use the blades got damaged. I would like to get all 4 new blades for my heli, and I tried to find it online, but I wasn't able to. The rotor blades are cca 19.5cm (7.6 inches) in length. Does anyone knows where I could buy the blades? Preferably a link to an Ebay product with free shipping or something similar, as long as I can pay via Paypal and that the price is affordable. Thank you in advance! Here's a pic og the heli, just in case.

Since this is a fixed pitch heli, your best bet will be to measure the length and see if you can find another helicopter with the same blade length that has spares available. Maybe eBay?

Good luck.

JWeber, yeah, I tried to find what you suggested, but I no luck. Do the blades have to be the exact same lenght as the original or can they be shorter or longer?
I've decided to try my luck and ordered this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/141215208583...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
Will it work?

Just go for a close as you can. I have no idea if they will work though. Good luck. If the root of the blade is a bit too thick, you can sand it down.

I've decided to try my luck and ordered this: ESKY LAMA V3 V4 Main Rotor Blades for RC Helicopter Apache AH-64 Walkera 5-4 5-8 | eBay

This is about as close as I could find also.

A bit short. But maybe will get you back in the air until you're ready for an upgrade

Good luck friend,
