    I can't remember if i read a post on here or one of the other forums about this balancing rod for the self tightening props:
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DJI-Phant...sGames_RadioControlled_JN&hash=item20e6c1e3a6

    Anyway, i bought one from the eBay seller i have listed and it works perfectly with the Du-Bro balancer. I didn't realise that the standard props would be so off balance. Five out of the six i have tried needed balancing.
    Anything that helps my V+ fly to its fullest is worth it in my opinion !!!

    Yes he is a good guy I got a couple off him when he first came up with them on RCgroups . I know they say stock props are balanced but they are not I had 3 out of 16 that where good .

    Great idea! I've been using after market props with non-captive nuts because I didn't know how to balance dji props. :oops: I tried to eBay & no go for USA. Made my own with an exacto blade handle. :lol:
