I dont know if these are the best but this is what I used

You will need 5 bags to do the entire heli and it will give you a couple spares.

Helidirect has the best in my opinion cause of the price. They come in blu, purple and silver. It takes 4 or 5 sets and they cost $2.99 for 10 screws per set.

I have them on mine and love them.

As long as you don't over tighten the stock screws or use excesiive loads of loctite they are just fine.

I've had to drill out an occasional one myself but I am quite sure that was due to one of the reasons above.

I did a bit of overdosing on the blue Loctite on my 700. I have three screws to dig out.One is in the fan shroud through the frame and the others are on the landing gear support to engine. ANY ideas??

The ones that I have stipped out I got out by cutting a slot in the head and using a flat head screw driver.

That worked for me too.
Also I have since found that the set of WHIA Allen wrenches I have I can use the correct one (3mm I think) and I have yet to have one of the shouldered screws not come out and not strip on me by using that allen wrench. Works great and I can tighten the screws with it good too without stripping or rounding them out with it.

Oh No Someone Please Stop Me Before I Go Broke With This Heli Thing!!

I bought a screws set and washers that have a shoulder on them for the 700 this weekend from Heli Proz and they look great.

Thats what I'm going to use.

Use green or no locktite at all however you may still have trouble if tightened to much.
