they dont interchange at all. Supposedly the 700 can upgrade to 770.

A 630 can be taken to 700

Aside from what's on your list,

( looking in my just arrived 630 box)

Tail rudder rod, longer on 700

Landing gear, though the 630 gear will work

And the 700 has an aluminum ESC plate ( probably more rigid)

Blade grips are beefier on the 700' you'll need them for the bigger blades

Top part of the swash links ( due to using the beefier grips)

Head block ( longer on the 700)

Think that's it.

I might be wrong about that though, I am starting my 630 build tomorrow, the 700 will be right on the bench while I'll be building the 630, so I'll post any additional differences I find, if you like

All in all you are talking about a chunk of dough to do this.

Yeah, it's way more than the 100 dollar difference in the pricing between the two...

Which means what, the 630 is priced a little high? Or parts are priced high.., or both?

I bought the 700 and like it so much that I decided to get the 630 too. Putting a helicommand hc3-sx in it, going to get more aggressive in doing more than sport fly. I hear the self level and auto rescue really work

they have the same main plate? Edit I looked and they do.

It seems weird like the 630 can be converted to a 770?

Just like that with anything, if you buy a heli piece by piece no matter what brand, you will spend well and above the price of a new kit. Replacement parts are the bread and butter of the hobby for them.

Not so weird. Other manufacturers do the same thing: use one frame for a range of blade lengths

Take logo for example:
Logo uses the same frame on the 500, the 500 SE, the 600 and the 600 SE, spanning blade sizes from 500 to 693mm ( a span of 193mm between min and max blade lengths for one frame)

Goblin uses the same frame for 600', 630' 700 and 770mm blades, which is actually less of a difference (170mm between minimum and maximum blade lengths) than Logo.

The nice thing is that so many parts are interchangeable between the 630 and 700. Makes owning both easier with regards to parts in the spare parts bins of my shop.

I have a 630 ( building it now) and a 700. I won't be getting a 770 though... Already have a true 800 class machine. I think of the 770 as a 700 stretch, not a bad thing, but I don't need two huge birds
