A — To support the propeller on the balance knives. B — To level the balance stand. C — To mark the propeller blades when weight are to be attached. 07. Propeller blade tracking is the process of determining A — The plane of rotation of the propeller with respect to the aircraft longitudinal axis¬
Aircraft weight and balance, determining takeoff distance, cruise performance, and landing distance are addressed in turn. Each lesson guide is presented in the format of a Flight Instructor 's Manual used by aircraft manufactures and pilots.
Tire balancer for 1", 1-1/4", and 1-1/2" axles, including Cessna 300 and 400 Series tapered axles with 1-1/2" and 1" bearing bores. Replaces P/N TOOL108. Wheel & Prop balance is important. Aircraft tires spin 1.6 times faster than car tires. Out-of-balance wheel cause a long list of maintenance problems: Uneven tire wear Premature bearing wear
Perform a propeller dynamic balance. Negative effects of vibration: Engine wear. Cracked exhaust or sheet metal. Vibration in the yoke. Vibration in the rudder pedals. Malfunctioning or failed avionics. Benefits of a Dynamic Balance: Extends the service life of airframe and components. With reduced vibration the aircraft runs smoother, quieter ...
Dynamic Propeller Balancing is the process whereby an electronic balancer is used to measure the vibration produced by the aircraft power plant. Small trim balance weights are added to the propeller/crankshaft assembly to correct for errors in mass distribution and to
The propeller shown in the picture has a 22 cal. Lead bullet, sunk close to the hub in order to balance it. I also added some more weight in the form of soldering wire as seen in the picture below. I usually use more Lead and then, with the Dremel, I can balance the prop removing some of it.
“This course is a terrific overview of aircraft aerodynamics, flight mechanics and stability and control, taught from balanced academic and industry standpoints. The covered material includes derivations of (simplified” equations of motion, static stability, dynamic stability, and brief introduction to flying qualities and control law ...
