Hi Guys,

Just thought this might be of interest, I have see some video and discussions on forums regarding vibration on Inspire.

I have always balanced my props and bladed to eliminate vibration, just checked 4 of my Inspire props and one was out of balance see photo.

the most accurate way is to use a threaded bar, screwed into the prop (can be purchased on ebay),
then simply balance on the top of a glass or a prop balancer.

Once you have identified the heavier blade with fine sandpaper remove some of the maternal from the back side of the blade near the hub until it bounces.
