Dynamically balancing a 52 Prop

Unread post by TheFlyingCoder » Tue Aug 13, 2013 8:21 pm

Hi all, we had a guy at our airfield this weekend dynamically balancing a Pitts Prop. I asked him to do a vibration reading on our Yak 52 with his equipment. He came up with a vibration reading of .5. Gary's Pitts had a reading of .17+-. Has any one else done this on a 52? I'd like to establish whether .5 is high,acceptable or low?
