I tried tracking by adding and removing shims…. It really is a time consuming job, also added reflectI’ve tape to the ends and used a sharp light to see the blades against a hanger door, ( cheap alternative to the LED lamps) Dave my partner in the gyro project agreed we got it as close as we could with minimum equipment and only basic knowledge, our video we placed could be as Mike says misleading as the phone software tends to smooth out shake, we do have slight cabin hop and I am hoping that we are not doing damage to the gyro by not having data on the vibration.Hi Mike,
Thank you for the reply. I am finding out the hard way that everything you say about stick shake is true!!! The learnings are good. I made the mistake of shifting the chord wise location in increments which were too large and missed the target big time. Looks like from your info above, I should be moving in steps of 0.05mm at a time followed by a test flight to measure progress.
My concerns are that a xenon fell a while back with blades cracking as they exit the hub bar and this is on my mind during every flight
