Default Balancing self tightening props

How do you balance the DJI self tightening props and what balancer works best?

I have a heli blade balancer but I don't think that will work.

I am looking to get some CF versions and I know they need it.

Cheers??

You can just use a bit of fuel tubing to mount the self tightening props on a std balancer, theres a video on youtube:

I tried the fuel tubing gig and wasn't too thrilled with it.

There is a guy in Texas who has a threaded rod for sale on Ebay that works with a Dubro prop balancer. He is on Ebay. I ordered one a couple days ago so I can balance my DJI 9443's. It should be here middle of next week.

The threaded shafts work fine if they are precisely machined, the fuel tube is way better than not balancing at all, which most people seem to do :-(
