Nano Magnetic Blade Balancer for 4#3(A/B/Q), 5G6-1, 4G3

Hi guys, ive never found any blade balancer for those little helis, so i made my own from Shapeways WSF material, installed some magnets i had laying around and some 1mm and 0.8mm metal rods.. just tough i would share..

like the title say, its a magnetic blade balancer, its ultra low friction and precise, if i tilt the balance platform and release it, it will go for 30 sec + before a complete stop!

work perfectly to balance the blades, and its a very solid unit, i thought WSF was not very strong till i got parts, but im really impressed by it strenght and flexyness..

the balance is really tiny.. so cute

i plan to do another version that will allow to balance the tail props, but the balance will be alot bigger than that one

here some pics

u mean have access to the NMBB on shapeways? i dont mind, but the magnets could be a problem to get. they are ez to find but u have to get them in bulk like 25-50+ at time on ebay(well. thats were i got mine anyways) and that may get expensive to get a batch of magnets to build one balancer

they are 6mm x 1.5mm N40 magnets
