Balancing fan tricks LOW BUDGET!

Balancing Trick/Tip no balancing machines or prop balancer needed.  EDFHOBBIES IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE OR PERSONAL INJURIES THAT MY OCCUR BY HOLDING THE FAN IN YOUR HAND. DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK.  THE BETTER OPTION IS TO BULD A STAND THAT CAN STILL SENSE VIBRATIONS.

 

  1. Works with EDF fans
  2. Install the motor, shaft adapter, and rotor. Make sure rotor is dead azz centered.
  3. Mark a straight line on the nose cone/spinner that intersects the rotor somewhere.
  4. Spin up fan(use a 2 cell lipo so its less dangerous and sensitive)
  5. CK for vibrations you could be one lucky SOB  NOT! You will be able to feel and hear it.
  6. A fan that is close may be cured by rotating the rotor/spinner around til you find a sweet spot but make sure the cone goes back to same spot by the previous line you made. This works really good especially on outrunners.
  7. If it doesn’t get better use a piece of hanging tacky material by loctite found in glue section at home depot.  Generally a size of about a small green early pee works if the fan isn’t that bad use a smaller piece.
  8. Attach it to inside the spinner right under the line you drawled.  Be sure to scratch up the surface a little so the epoxy sticks latter on.
  9. Put fan back together lines lined up..  No luck.. Right.. So don’t buy a lottery ticket.
  10. Now all you need to do is rotate the spinner in the direction of your desire until you feel the best spot.  When you do find the best spot remark the spinner this will be the area that the spinner has to go back on the same way every time. Now you can remove the spinner and either add or take away weight til you can’t fill any vibration.  This material flattens out as the RPMs increase so after your happy mix about the same amount of epoxy once you removed the blue Tack..  That’s it..  You can do the same to rotor. But its very time consumer moving material around and taking rotor off hub each time.  You can mount the rotor backwards on the adapter and all you would need to do is move blue tack around instead of messing with the taking rotor on and off.  But once you install your spinner the vibration will be back.  But allot of times you can move the spinner around with little or no weight til the vibration is gone again.
