Horse exhaust!
Too late, I just ordered some.

Well, what makes it unsuitable for practical use, please?

Hello

Thanks for your interest in the prop balancing rods.

I have today spoken to the guy that owns the machine shop & put in an order
for 50 to be made! Not really enough for me to make a substantial profit but
this is not a business I'm running.

Because of the holidays at this time of year he said the order would be
completed on 10/01/14

If this is OK with everyone I would be able to work out post and packaging
costs on 11/01/14 and post on the 13th I will email each of you with total
cost on the 12th then when payment is received I will post.

Seems a little dragged out but that is because of the holidays.

Hope you are happy with this arrangement.

Kind regards

Glen.
(20 orders thanks)

Beginner Realization:
All of the standard balancer mechanisms rely upon passing a shaft
through the hub of the propeller...
and the propellers for the P2V have a capped hole, so a shaft to support
the prop for balancing must enter from one end only. :o

So, the ones that I ordered will be useless. Doh! :oops: :oops:

Not sure what prop balancing device you are using but there is a YouTube video of a guy who shows you how to get around that using the Dubro prop balancer.

Sorry to resurrect an older thread, but thought it might be interesting for those who missed it the first time round or have already put an order in...

Glen kindly sent me one of his production prototypes to have a look at. I was very happy with the quality but I also wanted to see if there was a way for the non-RC old timers to have a go at balancing their props without having to buy the undoubtedly excellent Dubro (after all, we all need to save up for batteries!). As I didn't own a prop balancer I thought I would be a good guinea pig.

I accepted Glen's kindness on the understanding that I would review it as I found it and not sugar-coat any issues I had with it, so here's what I think of the balancing rods and my attempts at seeing if newbies can have a go at this balancing lark without investing in anything other than Glen's engineering..
