How would you balance the new blades??
You can use a prop balancing rod to balance the props themselves. However, the prop could still be unbalanced by the prop locking system. I'm not sure how possible it would be to attempt balancing the latter.
May not be an issue???
The new internal anti-vib system might be superior to the previous method.
Place a toothpick in the hub hole of the prop and tilt it horizontally.
maybe someone will come up with a balance rod that has the prop locking mechanism attached.
Good idea !
Why you think that the locking mechanism would prevent balancing the props? They look to me exactly on equal distances from each other. If the balancing rod fits the threading (which I think will do )
I see the props should be easily balanced

I presume this question is aimed at those wishing to use non-standard props on the P4. The stock props would already be balanced.
My stock DJI props are never perfectly balanced.
I always balance mine and is a lot easier after you do it a couple times.
and if they were not balanced? this is not an airplane
Think of the props as tires without a balance weight. It can wobble and shake. Maybe not at slow and easy flying but the faster you go, the more vibration.
THE ULTIMATE P4 PROP BALANCER !!
It is what I have and use. Short learning curve and once you do it three or four times, it gets easier. (Well and worth it in my opinion.)
I just got the speedy prop balancer and P4 prop balancing rod, they work great! I used 400, 800, 2000, and 5000 grit sandpaper to remove material from the whole blade on the heavy side. The P4 props are very smooth so if you don't have fine sandpaper you can add scotch tape to the light side.
Where can you get a Phantom 4 balancing rod? I can't find one anywhere.

The Du-Bro 499 prop balancer includes a rod that'll fit. You can buy just the rod here too.
Every single one of my Phantom 4 props were exactly the same off-balance. The Phantom 3 props I balanced were each a little different than the others but the P4's were all exactly the same
