My first plane was a real bear to get in balance. This plane had both fans just slightly out. Got them both to run silky smooth with very small pieces of 3m cellophane tape on one of the blades. Just did it by trial-and-error and found the best blade for one piece. Then adjusted the size up or down to find the sweet spot. Took me, maybe 8 or 10 trials for each one. I've used this method with good success on propellers, too.

The 70mm fan on my Dynam Meteor was way out of balance and rubbing the shroud, too. I don't think they make much, if any, effort to center and balance them.
