Hi,
I use a special material called BDP to print the fans. They are printed solid so there is no "air" inside them. They are just as tough as an injection molded model.
The fan itself is usually balanced quite well but obviously it always makes sense to balance the complete spinner/Prop/Fan assembly once before running. Some of my fans have been running for two seasons now without issues.
