One Design Prop Balancing at North Shore

I had cause to travel down to North Shore airfield recently to get a couple of washer head screws for my canopy from David Wilkinson.  He was setting up to do a dynamic prop balance reading for his new One Design ZK-EZG2, so I gave him a hand (while socially distancing).  The electronic prop balancing equipment was pretty impressive and it gave a weight to add at to the flywheel the appropriate position in degrees.

CAA inspection has been held up by the Auckland Level 3 Lockdown but it is ready to go and I am looking forward to seeing its test flight.  It will be a great performer.
