Could have posted this elsewhere but I know more than a few of you have one of these. I am looking for something digital, and nothing to the extreme but decent in quality and price. Thanks if you can direct me somewhere!!

If you want to use it to help balance blades, then you will want one with 0.01g accuracy (but these scales will generally handle 50g max. - good for blades and small parts, but not for heavier items like whole helis or packages). The Staples one above looks like it is 1g accurate (but higher 5kg maximum capacity). I compromised and went with a 1.2kg max capacity, 0.1g accuracy scale. Be cautious of cheap scales from China - accuracy is often over stated.
