Grip your main grips and lay the heli on its side and whatever is heavy will swing to the bottom. Nitros may be effected by the muffler somewhat but appears to work well so far.

Nothing wrong with the old way, with holding the main shaft parallel to the ground you can check balance with the main blades on and in any position.

i have always just held one blade grip so the spindle was perpendicular to the boom.

Well Shankbones since you asked this way is more acurate. The hang it "by the flybar" all the weight is hanging beneth the pivot point so small changes in the balance will not show up and can be hard to read if the boom is actualy level with the ground.
BTW where the rotor blades are positioned should not matter as they should be balanced provided they are pulled out reasnoably straight. Another problem is when you go FBL you have another problem NO FLYBAR

Jerry

PS Test it for yourself, Try it the Shankbones way then try it this way. Then add about 10 grams to the tail with a large paper clip{big black grip style} and see which way gives the best, most acurate, easy to see small changes, readings

PPS If you own a Mikado the skids are not at a right angle to the main shaft and the tail boom runs up hill so what do you use for a referance???
