DynaVibe Rotor F.A.Q.

Q: How can this low-cost system work on rotors when many other systems can't?

A: DynaVibe's "TruePhase" technology doesn't have phase shift during measurement like some other systems. So the angle given by the DynaVibe can be used directly on polar charts.

Q: Does the Classic-Roto version tell you what adjustments are needed?

A: Adjustments are specified by the rotorcraft manufacturer and can be found in your maintenance manual. The DynaVibe measures the magnitude and phase information needed to reference the manufacturers' charts.

Q: Can the Roto version be used on propellers

A: Yes. Please request a copy of the fixed-wing manual from support@rpxtech.com

Q: What is different about the Rotor version of the DynaVibe classic

A: The rotor version includes an additional accelerometer and remote "push-to-talk" switch to lock in readings. This is purely for added convenience versus the version for fixed-wing aircraft.

Q: Can you help me make rotor adjustments

A: Not usually. Rotors are complex and you should be advised by the helicopter manufacturer.

Q: I have a gyrocopter. Can I balance my rotor and propeller with the roto version?

A: Absolutely!

Q: Can you adjust track in a hover with the DynaVibe

A: No. We do not offer "strobe" type systems and the DynaVibe is not designed for that application.

Q: What is the minimum RPM that be used to balance using a DynaVibe

A: The DynaVibe can measure down to 300RPM effectively.

Q: Are the DynaVibe accelerometers fragile?

A: No. We make our own accelerometers using state-of-the-art sensor technology, not piezo crystals. DynaVibe accelerometers are quite tough and will not be damaged by normal handling or drops. While it is possible to crack or chip the sensor's epoxy housing, we have never had sensor failure due to accelerometer mechanical damage.
