Description

Setting up the correct CG (center of gravity) for your model is crucial when it comes to flight performance. Attempting to fly a model which is not balanced correctly can result in a total loss. With the all new Hobbyking Center of Gravity balance, all guesswork is taken out of the equation.

Easy to assemble and made from high quality materials, this machine will last you a lifetime. It features sliding rulers which will give you a very accurate CG measurement from the leading edge of the wing.

Features:
• Easy to assemble
• Constructed from high quality materials
• Can measure CG of up to 250mm from leading edge of wing
• 380mm clearance between measurement points and surface
• Maximum 260mm width between measurement points (adjustable)

Nel complesso abbastanza robusto ma purtroppo 1. le due squadrette sono da rettificare se si vuole che scorrano senza problemi avanti e indietro. 2. sbilanciano ilbaricentro reale del modello quindi attenzione!!!

Don't waste your money if you have lighter planes. My planes are typically EPP or depron and less than 300 g AUW. You can't use this balancer as the 90 set squares etc that hold the wing are quite heavy and significantly throw out the COG. To balance you have to remove them and then you may as well balance on your fingers/pencils.

Good balacer, poor manufacturing. Its weak in the balance points. You need to be very carefull to assemble this one.

Overall this is not a good quality machine. The weight of the rulers DOES affect the way the plane will balance. Unless your plane requires the exact same balance point as the rulers, you will get a false setup... Then there is the issues with the quality of the parts...

The machined alloy bits are beautiful.

The chrome steel rods are flawless.

The plastic square rulers are excellent.

The frames are not so nice. They're made of hand finished MDF that has been coated to prevent moisure damage. The bottoms that sit on the bench aren't totally flat. Then when you insert the two rods that hold them together and sit it on a flat surface (that has been proven to be flat and level), the machine rocks on two corners. To top all that off, when you insert the two pins at the top that are the actual balance point, the MDF splits down the middle.

Also if you happen to have a high-wing plane with struts underneath the wings, you may not get it to sit on the machine at all unless you remove the stuts.

Overall this is not worth buying. You will spend more money making it right than you did on buying it. It will also take you a couple of hours. You may as well just make your own from scratch.
