Good for single wing airolanes

Sep 17, 2021

This toil is perfect for single wing airplanes.
Measuring lines a little bit invisible...
The tool can't be used for upper wing balancing of bipes. In most documentation its CG is given only on upper wing! In the case you have to make new consoles for.

Works perfectly!

Dec 02, 2019

I’m not quiet a intermediate pilot in the hobby yet, but I got this when I was just starting out, and it’s worked perfectly for me every time. I gave 4 stars on quality because it fell from 2 feet up and split some of the wood on it, so the wood is slightly frail, but I was able to repair it and it still works great! Highly recommend

Works a treat!

Easy to set up and let's you get your cg dialed in very easily. Be careful pushing the pins in the wood it tends to split the board. I just glued the splits after assembly. No big deal for the price.

No instructions, broke

Nov 16, 2019

This product came with no instructions at all. I had to watch the product profile to figure out how to set it up. The stands are pressed paperboard/composite wood and the holes for the balance balls are too small. Both tops split while setting it up. There are grub screws that are suppose to hold the balance pads on the balls but no instructions to use them. I found this out after one of the balance pads fell off and the ruler broke. I was able to glue it back together with CA but it will only hold for so long. With great planes balancer no longer being available this is the only option, and it does work but it’s clumsy and marginally worth the $14. Most planes finger tip balance close enough with just battery movement, I’ll be keeping this aside for scratch builds that need trim weight for precise balancing.

Pas terrible

Nov 14, 2019

Dommage que les vis de buté pour éviter que les têtes ne sortent bloquent le mouvement.
Le bois s'est fendu après 2 utilisations

Sturdy and well made

Nov 09, 2019

I have only used this one time, and it works great. Not as flimsy as other CG balance tools. The only question I had was the MDF construction durability and that seems easily remedied with CA trickled into the holes for the rods. Again, very solid device.
