    Plane Stand with CG balancing tool

    Hi


    I have just finished my Al plane stand. I designed it for repairing insted of trasportation.
    In the future i am going to rebuild it for transportation and for CG balancing too.

    If anyone needs the plan I can send it in pdf.

    The total cost is about 22 Euro so far.

    I'd like a copy of the plans. It looks great. Just what my workbench needs. Thanks!

    RE: Plane Stand (Aluminium)

    That looks a bit labour intensive. This is just a suggestion. I do not have plans.

    Very nicely done!
    Have you thought about putting any foam rubber around the uprights to help protect the fuse? Something on the order of pipe insulation should work great.

    There is a rubber gand on the mating surfaces.

    Nice job Attigs. The term "simple but elegant" comes to mind. I like the adjustment to vertical legs of the cradle.

    RE: Plane Stand (Aluminium)

    Hi

    I finished the design of the CG-balancing tool. Today I made a test version and it works properly. It is sensitive and not that easy to use than I have expected, but it works.
    I used rolled-shaped PVC as the balancing arm and fitted it with a dowel srew with some play between them.
    The friction between the PVC and the steel is very low so it has just a small affection to the process.
    I think the inaccuracy could not be more than 1mm.

    RE: Plane Stand with CG balancing tool

    im interested in the balancing tool. Do you just measure the distance manually then place the stand on that point? What are the dimensions?

    RE: Plane Stand with CG balancing tool

    Yes of course. I place the required CG point over the fulcrum of the CG-tool then comes the balancing.
    The methode is similar like Great Planes's CG Machine. http://www.greatplanes.com/accys/gpmr2400.html
    Now I am working on the drawings. After finishing I will send it to you.

    RE: Plane Stand with CG balancing tool

    thanks, I do like the design. I do have the great planes CG machine and i feel really sketchy balancing my 90 size model on that thing.

    RE: Plane Stand with CG balancing tool

    I use the GP CG Machine and I just balanced a 50cc Yak on it with no problem. It is a simple design that works. I like the design that Attiqs did but balancing a 90 size on the GP machine is not unreasonable.

    Just my .02 worth

    RE: Plane Stand with CG balancing tool

    Hey Attiqs, I am not really interested in building one of these but I would like to say thanks for taking the time to design and post it for people. That shows what a great community RC modelers have.
    Scope? Listerine? Or Prop Wash?

    RE: Plane Stand with CG balancing tool

    I just noticed something on the very detailed drawings, that may have some interst to those familiar with drafting and interpreting drawings. Unfortunately I cannot remember some of the drafting terms, so please bear with me. I refer to the post of ATTIQS dated 3-14-07. The first drawing shows a front view, a side view and a bottom view. Note that the side view shows the LEFT side of the front view, and that the bottom view shows the TOP view of the front view. In Europe the projection of the three basic drafting views ) front, side and top) is opposite to the convention used in the United States. On a simple drawing like shown this will not be noticed by most people and should not be a problem. On a more complex drawing you may get the feeling that your eyes are playing tricks on you because the drawing seems to be laterally reversing in your brain. Once you understand the two conventions you will have no problem. One convention, I believe, is called left-hand projection, and the other is called, I believe, right-hand projection.

    RE: Plane Stand with CG balancing tool

    Nice work! Glad that I have a aluminum recycler fairly close by to get some square tubing. Straight cuts, accurate holes, pop rivets - simple is a good thing.

    Couple of questions. What tool did you use to create the pics in post 8 and 14? What format can be used to distribute "the plans"?

    Thanks for sharing ...
