    There is another guy in the UK making them now (well we did start the industrial revolution ;)). I ordered mine on wednesday & it arrived next day. Good quality at a great price - he is a forum member - viewtopic.php?f=7&t=8959

    He will probably not want it posted here but I will email him now and ask if I can send it to you by pm .....

    Edit: just remembered he told me he was moving house this w/e so maybe he is busy at the moment.

    well, I ordered a dubro 499 balancer today..i understand some folks are using rc car/truck fuel tubing to fit into the threaded nut on the propeller. I will probably go that route until I can acquire a rod that will fit.

    I have one from this guy. The shipping was fast and the product is good. I can't remember but I think it was about $20 USD after shipping. That could be wrong.

    This is like $28.00 shipped and it ships from the U.S.A. That's really not a bad deal at all... Thanks, guy...
