Balancing heli blades
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I am new to helicopters. I have read that balancing the blades is very important and I plan to do this to the best of my ability.
I saw that the Ray Hostetlar video on Balancing Blades mentions an Ohaus 310 balance but that sucker costs about $200. Here is the question: How critical is a 0.01 gram balance? Will a 0.1 gram balance be good enough?

the Heli-Max Heli Blade Balancer is what i use. and it works with small and big blades.
u need to balance the heaviest blade first in the not quite centre - u need to find the centre than mark it and transfer it to the outher blade.
than u balance the blades together.
the instructions are really good that come with thw balancer.
