So, fully extend the upper blades straight out, making sure that the blades don't droop on one side or the other. Hopefully, by now the flybar looks very balanced.

However, if you're talking about having the flybar taken off the helicopter and while it is not linked to anything and it's off balance, then we have an issue.
I checked it out, it is fine.
