Hi AirWolfRC

My Newtonian physics is a little rusty, sorry.

The last time I calculated rotational inertia was +25 years ago.
We always assume a single object attached to a string....or something like that.

With heli blades, we would have to calculate a 'mass point'. I used the phrase CG(span wise). What is the correct phrase for this calculated point to use as the radius in these calculations?

Regards
Paul

"I used the phrase CG(span wise)."

With span-wise CG, the "tennis racket" effect might come into play.

But, simple blade balancing(removing/adding weight) is better than doing nothing at all.

And, by weighing the blades, one can see that not all blades are made "equal" at the factory...close, but not exact....
