When you say your blades were "10 grams off balance" do you mean that one was 10 grams heavier than the other?
Mike, I really like the scientific approach you are taking. Keep it up! More specifically to your question of undersling:...
As I said at the beginning I can't believe they got it wrong because there are Magni pilots who say they have zero vibration but based on Jukka's experience and my recent amateur trials there seems to be something wrong.
Any ideas anyone??
It could, Red, because the mass of a rotor doesn’t lie in a single plane.Hi chuck, slightly off topic question but assuming the static balance of our blades is off should we not match the cg of each blade and then from there add weight at the cg spot?
This is how I've always balanced blades on my rc helis. If we just add weight at the tip wouldn't the balance change as the rpm changes? how do we adjust the blade cg assuming its off, paint, glue? Whats your thoughts on this chuck? thanks.
Mass above (and below) the teeter bolt is being forced to rotate in a 2/rev circular motion. It would rather not and instead, fly outward.Chuck
You'll have to explain your sketch to me, why does the masss above the teeter cause a forward acceleration?
