Some people think that balancing an rc heli is a matter of adding trims all over the place, but this is usually not the case. Usually balancing an rc heli involves more than just trimming. Essentially you have to make sure that the swash plate is as parallel to the ground as possible and that the placement of the batteries is deliberate for your purposes.
This tool will save you a decent amount of time when trying to level your swash plate on any type of rc helicopter. You don’t have to take off the whole head when using this tool, which results in time savings. The clear plate tool snaps onto the rod just underneath the swash plate and is then pushed up. And the title doesn’t have a typo, in case you’re wondering.

See the video to find out how to deal with that situation and for some other tips.
This one is five minutes of really fun flying and filming accompanied by the old and respected Iron Maiden song called Aces High from the Powerslave album.
