Balance Masters® is PATENTED, DESIGNED, MANUFACTURED, AND DISTRIBUTED IN THE U.S.A. and are easy-to-install devices for propellers and Rotax engines. These devices cut the vibration factor on ultralight aircraft by as much as 50 percent when both balancers are installed. Please read what our satisfied Lycoming Customers say about Balance Masters®
Balance Masters® are weighted with a high-density liquid mass (Quick Silver). The physical principles of centrifugal and gyroscopic forces explain the action of the Balance Masters®. With the Balance Masters installed, the weighted liquid mass (Quick Silver) in the apparatus shifts during spinning and adjusts to compensate for imbalances due to such factors as changes in flying conditions or warpage in the propeller, from nicks and rocks during takeoffs and landings. The Propeller Balance Masters® mounts on the propeller shaft or gearbox in conjunction with the propeller. It is less than 7 inches in diameter.
The Engine Balance Master is made to fit most Rotax engines and bolts under the Starter Pulley on the Fly Wheel side of the engine. It is less than 5 inches in diameter. Each device weighs about 4 oz. The installation will take 25-30 minutes using standard hand tools for each device.
Balance Master is designed to fit most propeller bolt patterns and Rotax engines from 277FA through 582. We will need to know the manufacturer of your propeller and engine model to determine the right configuration.
Here is what Harry Whiting, Grand Champion Oshkosh 1991 of the Lightplane category, has to say:
"I installed your Balance Master to the propeller on the 1991 Oshkosh Grand Champion Rans aircraft and could immediately feel a smoother running engine and propeller. It is important to know that this is our third Oshkosh Lindy trophy-winning airplane, and it is truly state-of-the-art. Your Balance Master may just be one of the best values out there, and as a Rans dealer, I will certainly recommend its use."
Yours for safe flying.
