Possibly in the future a encoder linked to the motor shaft with a home sensing 0 deg could be made with a processor watching strain guages place at angles to determine where to put a weight and how much. A automobile electronic tire balancer does this. Such method cost too much.
I have seen many videos showing methods of balancing.
The prop balancer I have uses magnetic suspension.
However the shaft is not perfectly strait.
Should I worry about its accuracy with the shaft not strait
