So I am looking for advice. I bought the rear balancing wieght ring works for tilt balance, but only if I add 2 quarters taped to the back which balances perfectly, but then the tilt is still very off. I have found that 2 additional quarters gaffer taped to the gimbal motors is the perfect wieght and works like a charm, but doesn't seem like a very elegant solution. I did buy blue tack patty, but frankly the amount you need to use to equal that kind of weight is not practical. Also I am wondering if I am over thinking it and that the gimbal is not being stressed enough to worry about it. I find it odd that a lens of this popularity that there seems to be precious little posted about balancing it.

Anyway any input would sure be appreciated.
