    Hi.

    I have been told that i need to balance my props in order to remove the Jello on my camera video.

    But how The hell do i balance my props?
    How do you do it?
    I bought a prop balancer, but cant use it because there is this know on top of The phantom props. There in no hole to put The balancer through??

    Could you advice me how to do it, or if you know a balancer let me know pleaaase :)

    Best regards Nicolai

    Does the rod that fits into the prop comes with the balancer?

    Balancing the props and changing the rubber insulators to either a stiffer or softer will also help.

    In my opinion the original props of dji are perfectly balanced just right out of the box. Only not original props might need balansing. Therefor, I would recommend to invest in original fji props and not in al kins of balansing equipement
