I also balance the rotors individually, but I don't disconnect the motors. Given that it was my first quad, I spooled it up in my hand before the maiden & played around with it a bit to observe the operation of the stabilization system. I quickly discovered orientations that would keep each of the rotors spooled-up while stopping the other three. So, I used that method when balancing the rotors after watching my first on-board video, which was a real jello-fest.
