Hello

I'm new to this helicopter hobby and I was reading about blade balancing and would it do anything to help my S107G fly better or is just a waste of time being the blades are so small.  My main hobby is racing fast rc boats so I know about balancing props is important. All input welcome!

Welcome to the forum!

Don't worry about balancing the blades--they're already good enough, and they'll just get ding'd, banged and cracked over time anyway. I've flown with a significant chunk out of the end of a blade and had it fly just fine. Between being so small and light, and being co-axial, they just don't need any special attention. Now, I do take the time to use the really cheap "invisible" tape that does nothing, sticks out like a sore thumb, and sticks to nothing to protect the leading edge. Turns out, that stuff's actually really good for a very cheap wear-absorbent on the leading edge of the blades. The thick plastic tape gets ripped up and banged up, and not the blades. Just go from tip to about where the blade thickens to the hole, and make sure it's equal length.

Also, stick around, we could really use your RC knowledge, and the boat know-how may come in handy.

Cheers!

My view no need to balance Syma 107 props as CPD  said coaxial, I fly planes as well and yes do balance those and quads I make, stops vibration and jello if filming with a quad

I've notice that my blades on the 111G and 107G get dinged up after some crashes -- hitting objects.  One thing I do after every session is check the feel of the blades.  If an edge feels rough, I use a small, fine file to smooth off the edge so it remains very sharp.  I have a feeling this can help continue good performance... to a small degree.
