Tbh I've been really busy, not had much time to fly anything and with conditions being crap, hopefully in the new year I'll have some new projects on the go, mostly to do with HAM radio, will certainly fly again soon. FTR I hate FB too   :D Merry Christmas

All ways good. To check balance I just got one off eBay has magnet ends seems to do the job OK

I think the great planes one is about the best on the market it works very well and easily allows for balancing of the hub to, The finger version isnt worth getting dont skimp on your prop balancer its a very important part of the hobby, it also packs away into the stands to form a nice storage case  ~~

the dubro balancer is also very good just make sure to Keep the wheels clean

If you find yourself in danger of being taken seriously, then try to do something which undermines or sabotages that perception in some way.

homersainty

also i just found this good idea if you don';t have a balancer and no reason that is should not work well

The you tube of using old motor as prop balance is a fantastic idea

Probably in the past yes they have always had a good name as a reputable dealer  ~~

I bought a Top Flight balancer from a local shop a couple of weeks ago and I can';t see how you could better it!
I also have a PK Quad, I got new RC Timer carbon fibre props for it( broke the old ones) and they were pretty well balanced when I got them. Only one was a bit awkward to get spot on and I had to add weight to one side of the hub. I use car paint clear lacquer. It dries quickly and you can';t see it.

I bought a Maglev from ebay which seems to do the job.
