Which prop balancer for large props?

Postby Tom.Laird on Fri Jun 08, 2018 2:36 pm

Hi guys
I am always nervous that my home made prop balancer is not the best for 23 and 28" inch props so wondering what you are using. I'd like to balance the prop, backplate and spinner. I have a commercial one which is ok for my smaller electric props.
thanks
Tom

I use the same one and it works great even with an idiot like me in control!
