I have the Hobby King CoG stand and its CRAP !

Its fine for small stuff ... but anything more than a Parkflyer light machine is not so easy to sort.

The horizontal arms 'float' on top of ball joints loose ... if they were clicked onto the ball joints sintaed of the grub screws - it would be much better. The screws when wound in to stop arms falling of - then restrict pivoting motion.
As Wildflyer says - plane falls off if not correct CoG.

Much better to just ditch the arms and put hard foam balls or eraser rubbers onto the ball joints ..

I have it there on the bench ... but my preferred way now is the old two fingers job ...
