    I have a rotor balancer from my other hobbies. What is the propeller shaft size on the Phantom 3 Pro, 5mm or 6mm?

    I understand that. My prop balancer is for through hub props. I need to get a balancing shaft for the self tightening props of the Phantom 3. That's why I ask if it's 5mm or 6mm as I don't have my Phantom yet. Otherwise I would measure it myself.
