The only unit currently made specifically for RC arms is the Heins Mp1.....they cost $8,000....

You can buy other units that can be adapted to work, but they cost even more, along with having less tech support...

There used to be a unit made by quillen, but they are hard to find....and still run over $1000....

And NO, you cannot use a prop or wheel balancer....doesn't work right regardless of what anyone may tell you........

We check the balance on stock motors.....if its way off, we just sell it as a hobbyshop basher motor or use it for a prize.....if its off a small amount, we touch it up.

I also have a quillen.....doesn't work right though....

Dynamic balance is what is needed as EddieO stated are $$$$$

Static balance is what a prop or wheel balance does and is not very precise.

Dynamic is what is used by all tire shops now, you have to spin the object to get a true balance as it will be spinning while in use.
