I think an et starts out as a 24 chopper and then the blades are given the et cut, burty will know he's got one.
Found the bill for repitching and balencing it was 68 plus vat plus postage

I believe an ET Lightning is an actual prop not a variation or cut of a chopper. However its possible to make an ET Lightning copy from a specific chopper. The chopper in question is I think a 24x14.5".

JBD is indeed correct, an ET copy can only be made from a 24" x 14.5" dia chopper
rop revs just charged me 50 + vat to work my prop so id try them.
I'd also try the chopper as it is first dude as it may have already been worked

Looks like it may be a non starter mate. Bloke just emailed me to say I owe him another $160 in shipping as HE worked out the carriage cost wrong. If he cant meet me at least halfway I`ll try and get me money back. Afterall I did ask him fist what the carriage would be so its his fault! Bloody Americans!

160 bucks! Try sending it by USPS surface mail. I got a lifter in for 70 bucks that way.

I have bought a few things from ebay in the USA and have been lucky enough to never get taxed on its way in!
