I have been working on balancing my rotor head and without the main blades on I do have a balance issue to one side. Can I move the stock flybar weights to balance this out or leave them out against the paddles and add wheel collars moved to balance things out.
thanks
Jeff

I suppose you could balance it however you want. If it were me, I'd want to find out why it was out of balance, and correct the underlying cause. Using the flybar weights seems like a band-aid to me.

But then I don't bother balancing my head at all

Are you using a high point balancer ?
After making sure head has been built properely or that 1 side doesn't have a lot more lube than the other ( I prefer to spin it up before I try to balance my heads )
I personally wouldn't use the flybar weights for this purpose.
Some times using a longer bolt in the right place will do
or applying some epoxy on the light side of the head

I have 6 sets of heads and all of them needed some balancing.
