You really don't need any. Align redesigned the screws for the 700e and made the hex socket deeper.

If you want to replace them, it would be 20. 8 for the tail drive, 8 for the bearing blocks and 4 for the motor mount. Add for 3rd bearing block if you do the mod. If you're using the KDE bearing block kit, regular screws are supplied .

Highly recommended to stop main gear strippage if you fly hard.

Hi guys
I built both my 700n's with these bolts. You need about 44. The Lynx
Pack comes either 10 or 45.

I have NOT had one fail or round out.

Looks very good.

I built 2 700e machines. The 'new' Align bolts are better than the
original ones, but I have still rounded out the Allen key hex head
when trying to remove bolts. I now use the Lynx bolts on
the motor mount on the 700e and will add more as I
strip more of the new Align bolts.

Regards
Paul

Ps: see pictures in my gallery.
