    I am new to the forum and may be doing this wrong but,
    Can anyone tell me a simple way to accurately balance these Q500 props. My balancer requires a through shaft with cone centering that I use on normal R/C props?? Thanks

    They make a special prop balancing tool (can find on ebay for about $11) little different than the one used with a centering cone. Has a straight rod with threads on both ends for right and left handed props. I don't have one, but have seen it used. Fairly straight forward.
    Cheers!

    Good success with the DuBro balancer. You will need the correct balancing rod for your application. There's a few places that sell Yuneec balancing rods online ranging from $12 to $25.
