I'll tell you how I been doing it for years....and I'm color blind to certain degree, seriously. If the blades are black, use a strip of white paper and transparent tape over it, just leave enough tape all around the paper strip so that you can stick this on the leading edge of one blade, just pick one and only one.....when you look at the rotor spinning....look at the right side of the rotor disks as it spins with level eyesight(tail facing you). For a micro heli you can do this on the dinning table. If it still does not look clear to you, put a barrier (such as a dark briefcase, a dark gym bag, a purse) on the right front of the Heli so that you have some contrast. If the blades are white...use black electrical tape. the whole idea here is to mark the blade grip of the blade that you made the pitch curves adjustments from and mark it with white out, a scratch on it or whatever is your flavor, just as long as you know and remember which one you made the adjustments from, then put tape on the other one and if is higher or lower.....adjust that blade out of track and make it equal. It sounds like more than what really is but it will take you less than 5 minutes, I kid you not. Also, make sure that while you there holding the heli by the skids it feels very light....like if it wants to hover, this will ensure all the flex is gone. Give it a try. Not to knock off anyone but I tried long time ago that pitch gauge on both blades thing, the precise messurement of links and all but you know what....not all blades are created equal when they are mass produced and you make the spin at 1700-1900 rpms.
