How do you balance your props? I know the Xoar comes already balanced but once it is drilled for the hub shouldn’t it be balanced again? Thanks.

Thanks, $40.-$50. Props are plenty good for me. Even that’s kind of rich for me. Don’t want to collect them. Not trying to start a prop museum.

EVO62 or Zenoah G62?

Need a little help to decide which way to go. All comments welcome. I have experience with the G62 but how does it match up with the Evo 62? Thanks for your consideration.

engines for Colorado?

I will be relocating to Colorado and am wondering what if any changes I should make to my gas engines to handle the dry air and elevation. I am thinking I may need to tweak the carburetors. Thanks.
