    Since an out-of-balance propeller can cause vibration-related problem in airframe and electrical components, a note has been added to the PAP and MM to prompt the balancing of the propeller initially and if vibrations are noticed.

    RV-12 MM REV 9.6 Section 11 REV 6: Added note to dynamically balance prop if vibrations are noticed or prop pitch has been changed on page 11-4. (See CN-00026 for MM export)

    RV-12 PAP REV 12 Section G6 REV 7: Added step to dynamically balance prop in section G6.
