    I have seen a few videos. I have a speedy prop balancer. Any have any tips? I'm thinking of scotch tape rather then sanding.

    Are you sure scotch tape would stay on the prop? I used sanding because then no need of checking the props ever time I would fly.

    You could also consider a drop of nail polish on the light side which would bond better than tape.. Could also be sanded if you apply too much.. Myself I prefer sanding

    I sand mine. It only takes a second and there is no worries if the tape came off or not.
