Christmas party Dec 3rd; at Liberty Tap Room & Grill, 5:00 pm (7651 N. Kings Highway, Myrtle Beach, SC 29572)
Main Discussion / Tech Talk:
Ron brought in the balancer system he uses for his alternator rotors. It was designed for propellers but he's configured it for use here. He's using a DynaVibe system. The system consists of a control box, an accelerometer, and a laser strobe pickup reflected off a piece of reflective tape.
Ron pointed out that working with armatures you can't add weight, only take it away so you have to pay attention to take weight from the opposite side indicated by the machine.
Carl discussed the helicopter system of accelerometer probes in the cockpit and the mast hub coupled with optic sensors.
Some of discussion about the old strobe system for props and the charts used to look up where to put the balance weight.
