You should really look at DynaVibe. I know those guys really well and they make a great product. Matt the owner knows helicopters very well. They have a new tracking light that is revolutionary, I actually did quite a bit of the testing on it. Great to talk to with balancing problems.

Although I have done many test flights for them, I do not own an interest in the company. I also paid full price for my unit.

We run an old Chadwick 177+ Strobex , (Getting costly to maintain ) we see a fair few helicopters that have been balanced with the latest  slick kit, we see them because the customer is not happy with the vibration.

So either the kit is faulty or to clever for a lot of APs to run, or it plain just don't work as it says on the tin.

We are looking at another machine at present if we purchase i will post review

​Before purchasing any vibration/ balancing equipment, I would personally recommend the Micro Vib 2 from Dynamic Solutions Systems. I do not work for them or have ever received any sort of payment from them. I have however, over the last 22 years, received superb customer service with several tracking and balancing issues. Especially when it comes to 500E's main rotor track and balance and 4 -blade tail rotor balance. One of the senior members there at Dynamic Solutions, is Rich Welsh, who is a former U. S. Marine with extensive CH-53E experience. I think he has tracked and balance just about everything and airplane props as well.  If you are interested: dssmicro.com 760-598-4000
