Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

DB that just means you have shed loads of props in the first place ;-)

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

Prop balancing

Hello all

I have read on forums whether you need to balance the props or not and i am getting mixed views some say yes and others say it is not necessary.  :confused:

I have got some Rctimer 8 inch carbon fibre props coming and i was wondering whether balance them or not.

it';s a no brainer ....balance always. You';ll find (hopefully) that decent props shouldn';t need balancing, not sure if that';s what you mean, but even the most expensive props can require balancing.

I helped a guy with his mikrocopter...props were 13 quid a pop, and they were some of the most out of balance props I have ever come across  :huh

If you';re not carrying a camera the don';t have to be perfect but if you are they should always be otherwise vibrations will be a problem.

You should always balance your props not only will the vibrations affect your sensors some times quite badly they will also cause problems with things coming loose and maybe even metal fatigue  :o
Not to mention totally spoil any videos you make  ~~

As well as issues with jello, there are issues with the IMU getting to much vibration which can cause issues even fly always from what I';ve heard.. Always balance why take the risk.. And if all nice they fly much better as well..

In my experience the full carbon fibre rctimer props are very good - quite well balanced out the packet. Your quadcopter should fly well enough without any extra prop balancing. The fact you are using 8 inch props (rather than 9 or 10) should help as smaller diameter props produce less vibrations.

They will perform even better when balanced though.

One circlip short of a quadcopter.
