Putting a few pounds of weight outboard to correct a rolling tendency he noticed on a 4 second flight? Dude needs to step back and think through the problem instead of jumping in immediately with a poorly conceived fix. Airplanes fly just fine every day with minor L/R weight imbalances. In this case, I'd look at mis-rigging, torque effects, control friction, or poor wrist/stick ergonomics rather than the minor moment induced by L/R weight imbalances.
