Default dx7 balancer

I know i,ll post in that one too. but i know a lot of guys here use dx,s . anyway have found a fab new material. apologies if someone already posted but i couldnt fnd one
anyone ever use polymorph. i got some and am addicted to the stuff. anyway heres my first attempt at balancing my dx7 with this wonder stuff. its basically a thermo plastic but melts at a highish temp bout 85 deg ( ifound boiling water is fine) but your can mould it down to about 60 deg for about 10 mins so it doesnt damage or stick to your tx. one fused it is white and like a very stiff nylon
photos...
1 . put a rolled up piece through eye to secure(this stuff fuses to itself very well when soft)
2. ( its clear when malleable) first tried being clever and moulding a loop but this was ugly
3 . do step one then just mould a whole lump to the desired shape
4. find your balance point and drill a hole
5. et voila . perfectl balanced tx
ok i know it loks like a witches nose but works fab
may cut it off now and make one a little more pleasing to the eye

Ill have to take photos of my DX7 at home, but a buddy and I took a "i" bolt and ran it through the hook that is pre-built in your DX7 and then attached our neck strap to it.

basically took 30 seconds to twist the nut on the bolt to secure it... For anyone out there who is inspired by this original post but doesn't want to "create" anything or doesn't think they'd be able too...

$14.95 to fix a problem they created??? Man, that's pricey.....

There's already a thread in the 2.4G section on DX7 balancing.

I use it and so far so good. I wondered about stressing the eye as well. I'm sure at some point with a whole lot of excess strain it will snap, but it seems that with normal use it should'nt be an issue.
