After watching several YouTube vids on Drone Prop Balancing, I decided to try something different.  I sharpened to a point, then heat annealed a metal rod part of my fixed-wing UAV prop balancer.  Take a look at what I did and how an unbalanced prop "sits" on my balancer.  Still a problem ---->  sandpapering is not a good idea on ANY prop since it affect the laminar flow of air over the prop surface hence causing a small change in the lift characteristics of the prop.  Am looking for other things to do to balance both the hubs and blades of my props.  Any Suggestions ???

@ThunderBot - I have that same prop balancer and it worked fine for me but more recently I've purchased my props from these guys as they claim that the props are factory pre-balanced.

Also they are manufactured here in Northern California, in fact not far from where I live.
