    Smoother flight performance. Makes a difference in speed and video quality.

    How do you correct the props when out of balance with this?

    To balance a prop you screw the rod included into the appropriate prop and place it on the two wires that are parallel to each other. If the prop rotates downward you place tape on the back side of the light end until the prop stays exactly in the middle then it is statically balanced and gives you better endurance because the motor is not having to work so hard and what is more important you get less vibration and thus better videos because the attached camera is not shaking. You can learn more about balancing props at www.rcpilotsupply.com.

    I'm kind of hesitant to tape the prop? What the of tape? At those speeds wouldn't it peel away or cause drag?

    It's safe, that method for prop balancing has been around for a long time (well before multirotors hit the scene). This video covers the basics of prop balancing and shows other methods you can use:
