    Hello,

    after all the issues with balancing my propellers without removing the cap of the propeller, I printed and tested my new cheap balancer.
    Works fine... (sorry for the poor video quality)

    Regards Alex

    :D that looks very nice Kaadesign!
    Balanced propellers are so important! I've been using an exacto handle on a Dubro balancer; your product looks simple and effective.

    Hi,
    i know,- DJI propellers normally are well balanced. ... but who doesn´t had a flip sometimes... ;-)
    My opinion:
    Vibrations less damage the ball bearings / motors as the gyroscopes /acceleration sensors ! No problem to change bearings... huge truble to change the sensors or the complete pcb....

    Regards Alex

    Hello,

    eBay? Is this a chinese market?
    Here a nice detailed preview: (Firefox Browser or better Chrome recommended)

    I´ve uploaded the axis to Shapeways.
    http://www.shapeways.com/model/2819599/ ... terialId=6
    I ordered my axis at Trinckle Germany, because of my location:
    http://www.trinckle.com/object.php?id=826

    I'm considering to make variations for other pin diameters. E.g 2mm.

    Regards Alex

    I need to get a balancer one of these days so I can actually use my P2 props.
