Back before "headloaders" were invented I used old wood blades cut down in length (1/2 span was what i used) and bolted on the bird with 5-7 degrees more pitch than normal.

These "Pengiun" blades (a bird that can't fly...get it?) would let me cycle thru pitch ranges, track the blades and load the motor for break-in...all without boom interferance and dust clouds!

Hope this helps...

Chris

I would like to add that you really should reinforce the plastic balls as they will crack & fail in short order( at least in my experience with two sets.) I purchased some extra whiffle balls(same size but white) and cut out the ends( about 3'' diameter) and screwed & glued them onto the existing balls while adding a larger washer to the both sides of the ball. It takes about 3 sets of hands to get it all together but it has held up fine and proved invaluable while working on a glitching heli.
YMMV

If your balls are cracking and failing you are reving too high.... DO NOT go full throttle on these~!.

That is what I was talking about in the other post. If you rev up too high the balls can seperate and it will not be a money saving test. Instant unbalance. On top of that they are rated for a 60 size heli. Didn't see anything about a 90. With any luck you can find your problem at a low head speed.
