Default Stainless Steel Screw Kit for T4?

I have a new T4 kit I will be putting together and have a set of the stainless steel screw set for the T4. Does the additional weight these screws add worth the durability you gain by using them? Appreciate your input.

i'm not sure that they add much strength and i've heard that the hex isn't always as precise as with the standard screws. this can lead to the head stripping.

there is no durablity purpose for them. the only thing other than cosmetic that they are good for is if they get wet, they dont rust like the standard screws. other than that, they are cosmetic only. for a lil bling bling.

Some time ago Ultimate RC did a review of RC Screwz and they were throroughly impressed. Form what the tester did, they seem a little more than just for show, in my opinion. Here's the link. http://www.ultimaterc.com/land/revie...z01/index.html

Good luck,
Brian
