Be advised that this comes with no instructions, however it's not hard to assemble if you refer to the pictures on this page. This device is for larger planes. It was difficult to balance a plane like the HK Bonsai because the plane doesn't weigh enough to level out the supports it sits on. Also, the plastic measuring rulers themselves will skew the balancing. On a model weighing a few pounds this is probably negligible, however on a lightweight foamy park flyer it changes the balance point. At a minimum I would think this is suited for models 1 pound and up.

Good Quality machine. This will allow for precision fine tuning of the CG of airplanes. The assembly is simple, even lacking instructions. The Plastic Measuring Brackets have numbers to locate the CG from the Leading Edge of the Wing. The Numbers could be easier to read. There is some resistance of the pivots. This is a good value that will help your flying skills improve with a correct Factory CG set-up.

This item came in broken, the two pieces look like wood from the photo but are a fiber of some type. The hole where the balancing pin sits was split down the fiber, I had to epoxy and use a hand vice to hold it together. Returning, paying for additional postage both ways and having to wait again was not worth the time. Balancing for CG is very difficult if not near impossible. I would recommend another type.

Simple to assemble but the plastic rulers skew the cg. I keep them off but they are useful for measuing out the location of a predetermined cg. Then use these little www.link IMO it is a fair deal for a desent quality tool that does the job
