Anyone have an idea as to where I can get a cheapo scale for weighing small parts?

Something that does ounces or grams would be ideal as I wish to lighten some micro heli paddles. Weighing each to match the weight is what I need to do.

try the club stores Sam's, Cosco etc.
I got a $25.00 postal scale works well
as for complete accuracy ?
but definitely repeatable, which is required for balancing

I doubt it. Don't you need to be a dealer to have use of a scale? Does foo actually strike anyone as being smart enough to do that...you know there is a fair amount of math to be done.

Sporting Goods stores that sell ammo reloading equipment, what I use is a "505" Scale that measures to the tenth of a grain.
Or you could try http://www.midwayusa.com/rewriteabrowse/2/9211/9315***731***

If you only want to get them both the same and the weight doesnt matter, make a simple balance beam, more accurate too.

Check ebay under hunting (reloading) supplies. One like this will fit nicely in the field tool box. It weighs up to 200g, which should be plenty for even most main blades.
