The HobbyKing Frog Multi-Function Balancer is a handy tool for any workspace. This balancer gets its name from the green bearing holder's frog like appearance. The Frog is capable of balancing items as either a precision ball bearing balancer, or for smaller items, in magnetic mode, where by a small shaft is held in place by small magnets. This is the ultimate in friction free balance checking. This set includes both shaft types with self-centering cone shape fittings that work on regular and T-style propellers. When operating in bearing mode, the Frog balancer can be set up with the balancing shaft just on top for lighter propellers, or in a cantelever mode to support heavier propellers. Simply shift the position of the bearings on one of the green Frog fittings.
The Frog is made from precision CNC aluminum alloy which helps provide a rigid and stable platform for performing all of your balance operations. It includes all hardward and illustrated instructions to complete assembly and proper balancing operations. Great for balancing all sorts of things from propellers, wheels, rotor heads, clutchbells, or whatever!

• Quick assemblying kit
Max Prop Diameter: 12 inch (Bearing Mode)
Buon bilanciatore,molto robusto.Preciso il bilancere magnetico meglio dei piu costosi e blasonati.bilanciaeliche,un po meno la parte cuscinettata.Con qualche accorgimento si migliora.Ottimo qualità prezzo!Excellent balancer for different sizes of propellers. Very good for its price.sehr vielseitiger balancer, klappt hervorragend mit grossen Props und den Kugellagern, mit den Magneten fuer kleine props, es fehlt evtl eine wasserwaage im fussNach dem Auspacken musste ich feststellen, dass eineige Schrauben nichzt passen bzw. gar nicht vorhanden waren. Nach mehrmaliger reklamation leider keine Antwort.
Also ob es funktioniert oder nicht kann ich somit gar nicht sagen.Really nice tool to have on your desk.
The magnetic part is great for my small quad and tri props probably to 9".
The bar part is however let down by high bearing friction.
I think the prop would need to be big and very bad to overcome the bearing stiction.
That said its still good value for the magnetic part and is so sturdy it will last forever.
Maybe with a small invest in better bearings this will be the last balance tool ever.
Muy buen equilibrador de helicesrichtig gut auch fr groe luftschrauben, sauber verarbeitet, empfehlenswert fr diesen preisexcellent piece of kit, a must have if you want to reduce the vibes from your engine I used fishing shot and super glue to balance the hubs and paint on the tips of the prop. you'd be surprised how far out of balance most props areThey should call this the Dog - not the Frog! None of the shafts are running true - as a result t's impossible to get an accurate reading. I tried straightening but still not good.
Also, the cantilever shaft option is of no value with light props such as a 8 x 4.5 . Bearings are not smooth enough for the prop to rotate
Even the ground points on the magnetic shaft are not accurate - one side runs almost true but the opposite side run well out.
Cheap yes but not good value when it doesn't provide reliable results.
.this balancer is awesome as it have multiple ways to balance a prop. it have magnetic side and bearing side and both of them is working well. my only notice is this bearings are too dry to work efficiently so don't forget to lube them up and keep spinning them both ways to make sure they're as smooth as they can be. I'll buy again if I need a good balancer
