Been online several times trying to find screws or screw kits for Kraton, Outcast etc.. I don't want to pay 1 or 2 dollars a piece cuz that's ridiculous. Not interested in stainless especially RCscrewZ. I'm not even sure what sizes to get M3/M4/M5...10mm-20mm-30mm? I have found some random sizes hear and there but nothing in "bulk" or in variety assortments. Mainly screws for chassis/bulkheads, long wing mount screws, some shorter button head screws for suspension and random places. I have gone to arrma's exploded view to find out what exactly I need but it's soooooo tedious and a pain in the a$$! Thnx.
 
I just order them from ebay as I need them. Usually order about 10 or so at a time. 12.9 grade.
 
I got the screw kit/parts from jenny's otw. But i was looking for something with like 10 or 20 of each so I don't have to worry about it for a while. I don't have local easy to access hobby shops near me and looking for and ordering screws then waiting for them to ship is a little annoying.

Order them a little longer, you will truly only need 1 length, well maybe 2 :ROFLMAO:
I have a bolt cutter to trim to length, but hardly ever needed.

what is a good length for universal use?? 20mm or 30mm?
 
There is so many of the same type in that kit you just bought I wouldn't assume you'll need more.
Oh...really?? Not just 2 for wing mount, 2 for this 2 for that? I was under the impression that the screws from jenny's were a kit per rig. So just a set of everything.

Monster bolts has a website now https://monsterbolts.com/
These guys are my go to for screws, most of them cost less than 15 cents each as long as you order them in quantities of 50.
The most common sizes are M3x10, M3x12, M3x16 and M3x20.
 
Awesome thanks!
I horde screws and I can't abbreviate

Thread a nut on first. Cut the bolt to size with bolt cutters or a grinder preferably and thread the nut off after cleaning up any burrs with the grinder or a file. I have done this many times in the last two years when the LHS is closed and my ADHD is raging and I know I will not sleep until it's loctited and ready to run tomorrow.
 
Jenny's kit for the rig you have will give you plenty to work with for a while. I start with a kit from there and then sizes I use a lot of I buy in bulk, like I don't reuse motor mount screws so I bought a 100 pack of them for $7.

Have had good luck with that brand on Amazon and Monster Bolts on ebay.
 
I have a mill Wright neighbour who works in a food factory. He gave me a ziplock full of stainless metric screws of varying sizes. It's been a god send. It wasn't much good for the 3S platform since M4 was pretty much the smallest size but for the 6S and the 1/5th we just got? The foxes' socks.
Not everyone is quite that lucky though I suppose.
