Cessna 152 swappable build

OUCH!!! Hopefully you were able to recover the motor. Nice deadstick landing.
Looks like you had some extra vibrations as well, you might want to check out the FT videos on prop balancing.
I actually do have a balancer and typically balance my props, not this time though :) This was a cheap HK "APC-like" prop that was way out of balance and I just wanted to fly so it's my bad. The vibration was from the out of balance prop. The biggest problem was I had a genuine APC prop adaper on my motor and just slapped the APC-like one on there and there's too much slop between them.
My dog chasing my plane as it lands. Flew it today in gorgeous weather with no wind. It flew terrible no matter what I did. My planes keep getting worse!
