The Tru-Spin Prop Balancer (#499) from Du-Bro Products is a great shop accessory that every RC modeler and pilot must have. With RC airplanes, vibration is the enemy and whether you are an electric, glow or gas airplane pilot, balancing your prop is a must. A balanced prop reduces the wear and tear on your aircraft by greatly reducing prop induced vibration, which goes a long way in eliminating premature failure to all your RC components. A little time spent in the shop will give your aircraft a much longer lifetime. The most precise balancer available today, the Tru-Spin Prop Balancer’s specially designed locking cone securely centers and locks props on to the balancing shaft. The balancing shaft is manufactured out of hardened steel and is then “centerless” ground producing an absolutely straight shaft. This and the prop balancer’s aluminum wheels, which turn virtually friction-free, give you the utmost in precision accuracy. The Tru-Spin Prop Balancer can balance model airplane props of all sizes and weights including helicopter rotor heads, and ducted jet fan impellors. Priced at $41.95, each balancer comes complete with easy to follow assembly and prop balancing instructions. It is a truly precision instrument built for the RC modeler who wants the very best. I highly recommend it.
