*If your model manufacturer only shows the C.G. location at the wing tips,
the solution is simple. Assemble the wing halves onto the wing tube off the fuselage, lay the assembly on a clean work bench
and run a string from wing tip to wing tip at the location desired. Now, you can mark the location of the C.G. at the root
of the wings. We recommend using a fine line tape if you don't want to make a permanent mark on the wings. See the picture
*Here's an idea if you like many of us are getting on in years and the eyesight
isn't quite what it used to be or you work in a space that is darker than the ideal workspace would be. Take some white paint
and paint the inside area of the "Notch" in the cradle so it is easier to see under the wing. It really makes
the "Notch" stand out.
rubber guard material for both the EZ Balancer II
and the EZ Balancer 'Lite' as well as the base angle guards on the EZ
Balancer II are shipped to us on a roll and therefore have a curl to them and can slip off. We have always
recommended to glue them on for a more permanent cure and to keep from losing them. We have used everything from Goo Glue
to Construction Adhesive with good luck but it is messy and can be expensive as you only need a little and most are sold in
tubes that sometimes goes to waste. Here's a very neat idea sent in by costumer Dave Bryer. Use double sided tape. Most
of us have that in our supply drawer. Dave used the Scotch Brand that comes on a dispenser roll just like regular Scotch Tape.
*If you have an oversize model that is taller than the original
EZ Balancer will reach, you have two options. First, you can mount the Aluminum cross piece on top of the
wood base rather than on the bottom as shown in the manual. Second, if you have a truly unusually tall model, you can block
up under the wood base with scraps of wood, or anything high enough to achieve the height desired. The All New
All Aluminum EZ Balancer II is 3" taller than the original, so height should not be an issue. But, if in fact
you do have that truly rare model with an unusually tall gear, you can now order our new EZ
Balancer II "Super Size" kit.
