I am trying to find out when you would add weight to a blade. I did a blade balance search on RR and didn't find what I was looking for.

Example: Blade # 1 weight is 35.55 g
Blade # 2 weight is 35.90 g

Would you add weight to the light blade as a rule or what weight guide lines would you use? I used a Cent-O-gram scale to get the weight.
I am still a new guy and still haven't flown my newly purchased Rave 450 yet but that hopefully will change pretty soon. My Rave came with CY carbon fiber blades so I bought a set of fiberglass blades to ding first. So I took the opportunity to learn about blade balancing on the fiberglass blades. So I painted some orange stripes on the blades and rebalanced the blades. I used a Koll Rotor Pro for this. I got the weight of blade #1 to 36.09 g and the weight of blade # 2 to 36.11 g. I believe this is over kill but was a great learning experience. So are there any guide lines for when to add weight and when not to add weight? How much weight difference can you just let go and fly the blades?
