Based on the original development of Olav Kalhovd, GliderCG is a CoG digital balance device for RC planes able to provide the exact information of where the CoG is located in our glider by through a screen that also provides information of the sailplane's total weight.

Simply place the glider above and know your CG, without having to make balances or mark the wings for supporting them in precarious structures.

Once the glider is placed in the device, we can vary the center of gravity by moving the battery for example and GliderCG will automatically inform you of the new center of gravity. Easy and simple.

The GliderCG family was born with the aim of being able to transfer the concept of digital measurement of the center of gravity to the different types of aircraft and radio control gliders. For this reason there is a specific device for each of the different popular disciplines: GliderCG Standard, GliderCG Plus and GliderCG F3K-DLG.


    GliderCG Standard V3 - $192

    • Folding arms with solid locking mechanism.

    • WiFi + Oled Display. We can visualize the data through its built-in OLED screen or browse it through the WiFi connection for those situations in which due to our position we cannot easily access the screen reading. The WiFi connection also gives us the option to save the CG configuration of our different models and check for example the changes that result from a modification or repair.

    • Battery Level indicator (WiFi Interface).

    • Sliding lid access to the battery compartment.

    • Greater stability

    • Max. weight: 8kg

    • Max. fuselage width: 86mm

    • Max. fuselage height (from bottom fuselage to wing bottom): 87mm

    • Leading edge to rear support pad distance: 150mm

    • Power: 9V DC (6LR61)



    GliderCG Standard V2 - $192

    • Higher and wider arms to easy fit a complete variety of different fuselage sizes.

    • New font that facilitates the reading of the data on the screen.

    • low battery alert at the start of the device.

    • Sliding lid access to the battery compartment.

    • Greater stability

    • Max. weight: 8kg

    • Max. fuselage width: 86mm

    • Max. fuselage height (from bottom fuselage to wing bottom): 87mm

    • Leading edge to rear support pad distance: 150mm

    • Power: 9V DC (6LR61)



    GliderCG F3K/DLG - $192

    • New font that facilitates the reading of the data on the screen.

    • Low battery alert at the start of the device.

    • Sliding lid access to the battery compartment.

    • Greater stability

    • Max. weight: 8kg

    • Max. fuselage width: 55mm

    • Max. fuselage height (from bottom fuselage to wing bottom): 75mm

    • Leading edge to rear support pad distance: 115mm

    • Power: 9V DC (6LR61)



    GliderCG Plus - $452

    • Stronger and more robust arms.

    • New font that facilitates the reading of the data on the screen.

    • low battery alert at the start of the device.

    • Sliding lid access to the battery compartment.

    • Greater stability

    • Max. weight: 15kg

    • Max. fuselage width: 160mm

    • Max. fuselage height (from bottom fuselage to wing bottom): 146mm

    • Leading edge to rear support pad distance: 176mm

    • Power: 9V DC (6LR61)



    GliderThrow - $175   

      GliderThrow is a digital Angle/Throw meter and ... Differentials!

      This small device can measure the deflections in degrees / millimeters with a resolution of 0.1 degrees and can measure the differential when working together with a second unit since GliderThrow is a system that comprises two sensors, one for each wing or surface of your airplane.

      Using a dual system very much simplifies the throw setting of your model by having a direct view of both control surfaces at the same time.
      GliderThrow has been initially conceived for setting the aileron and flap throws of a model glider but you will find that it can be used on most every airplane and for a variety of applications as Measuring a dihedral angle of a wing, Measuring Model Airplane Incidence angle , etc.

      The data can be viewed through any web browser on a smartphone, Android or iOS, PC or MAC.

      GliderThrow does not need any app to work. When turning on both units, search with your smartphone or PC for WiFi Ap called "GliderThrow" and connect. Once connected, you will access the GliderThrow site trough your web browser.




    GliderThrow Quad - $330

      Introducing our new GliderThrow Quad. A new pair of sensors 3 and 4 of our digital Angle/Throw meter and differentials that, as well as working by themselves alone, work together with the current units 1 and 2 for those users who want to measure the throw of up to 4 control surfaces at the same time and their differentials. Available as a special order.



    GliderThrow Incidence Tool - $39

      For using together with GliderThrow, wing incidence tool is a helpful tool to measure the incidence angle between the wing and the horizontal stabilizer.

      The use is simple, first block your plane in horizontal position, then put the incidence tool both in the wing and h. stab. You can lock the tool position tighten the screws in both sides.

      Once in position reset GlideThrow both sensors in the same horizontal surface and then put it in the center tool support. Remember to put the hinge position of the sensors to the plane´s nose. The magnetic side will help to keep it in position.

      Now in the GliderThrow page you can verify the incidence in the "Differential" frame. The relative measures of each sensor are not relevant in this case.
