Hi Guys,
I sorry if I'm reposting...I couldn't find it in this forum going back 20 pages.

Does anyone know what is the best replacement screw set (complete) for the Trex 700? and where to get it?
Thanks in Advance,

If you are replacing all the screws.

RC Screwz offers a very nice set.

The above will not work, you need the shouldered washer kit so you can use standard M bolts.

This is what you need.

i have the rc screwz kit and the liron washer with additional stainless socket head screw set from liron.

i can safely say the rc screwz kit is almost "complete". by this i mean it has almost enough screws in the kit to replace every stock screws on the airframe. however, some of the screws in the kit are lousy. those screws include the frame screws. yes, it has all the screws to replace all the shoulder screws on the frame, but i wouldn't use them. because it is shorter, doesn't have the shoulder, uses a smaller socket driver and i don't feel comfortable using it. the feathering shaft screws has the flange on the head of the screw too small to hold the thrust bearing in the blade grip. the blade grip screw has a shorter shank, though it has the same length. it matters to me. but personally i would not use stainless screws at all on the spindle, blade grip, jesus bolt, and main gear bolt. its just too soft and a plain bad idea.
there are no replacement servo mount screws!! you will have to use the stock servo mount screws, i did strip few servo mount screws and so i change all of them with jr phillips head screws.

the liron washer was just washer, no screws. i did purchase an extra set of 50 pieces of 3x10mm stainless screws, as it did not came with any screws.

the rc screwz i use mostly on the head and tail assembly, the liron washer and additional stainless screws i use on the frame. if you want to replace just the frame shoulder screws, then the liron washer with additional stainless screws kit will be the way to go. the rc screwz kit was a plain waste of novelty, because the other non-lousy screws they replaces works just fine stock.

i also recommend the the jr screws for the servo mounts, only if you find frustration with the stock screws.

I guess I'll use the stock ones for these.
Much Appreciated!

i hope you also place an order for a set of 50 3x10mm socket head screws from liron website, as you're going to need them. the frame screws from the the rc screwz kit are kinda short and uses small socket driver. not good.

Just get the washer kit and you can use standard M3 bolts.
