Gaspar at Xicoy has done it again – confounding us with his electronic genius !
Quite a simple device this one but makes CG measuring extremely accurate and very easy particularly for large models. An absolutely worthwhile investment for any of us with jets and or large models.
The unit works on the principle of using the weights on the wheels in relation to datum points from which we can calculate the CofG of an aircraft. Some of us having been doing this using kitchen scales and a written formula – with the most advanced versions using an Excel file to calculate things for us ! I have found this to be an extremely good method of measuring the CofG but very frustrating getting 3 sets of scales all the same and also able to take enough weight and be accurate to measure what I need.
This clever device has it all – 3 precision weight sensors, accurate to 1 gram, connected to the “brain” where you input your parameters and it tells you how much weight to add or remove at a certain pre determined point to achieve your required CofG. Little touchscreen handheld device makes it all very easy with data stored for up to 100 models and capable of handling model weight of up to 50kg.
Here is a link to a video of the prototype unit showing how it works and how simple it is.
We should have these in stock in the second half of February
