What size flybar? Ronlund has some flybar weights and I have used wheel collars with a set screw for plank landing gear.

EDIT: beat me to it!!

Wheel collars work as good as 'fancy' weights

4mm = 5/32 collar
I use 1/8 collars for 3mm flybars

4 on each side will do it.

Not sure what the collars weigh, definitely less than flybar weights.

I just run two each side all the way in (close to the center), but they are there if I want them.

4 of them, all the way in, would be like 1 collar all the way out on the flybar. 1 collar is pretty light.

Up to you how many you want, I just mentioned to use four to save from taking the paddles off twice if you wanted more weight

4 of them all the way out should be pretty pokey, super mellow.

A friend of mine weighed one stated it was just over 1g. Doesnt seem like much weight but i guess with rotation it may make a difference

I have a set of KSJ 3mm flybar weights if you have a 3mm flybar.
