I was always having trouble balancing my large planes.  It seemed I needed two people to assist me.  They would have to crawl under the wing and hold up the plane.  It wasn't very accurate and I wanted something I could use by myself.

Here's the simple CG Balancer for large scale planes that I came up with. 

Place under plane and push down.  Lets you lift plane from ground, rather than having to lift plane by hand and set it on something.

I used 1/2" aluminum rod, but you can use a pipe and "T" rig also.  Works great. 

I will have some pictures from the Horizon Aerotow ready for the next issue.  I will include some "how it works" photos.
