Good clutch one speed that's it's downfall a little slow but has been good for me. I found mine around Christmas time I think I paid $25-28 dollars for it on sale.

I use the sears version that is very similar. This is the smallest/lightest driver I could find with a clutch and built in quick change attachment. If its only going to be used for RC, this is more than enough.

I've held both the Hitachi and the Sears(Ryobi) drivers. Its probably splitting hairs, but I think the Hitachi is heavier and it's definately larger and feels bulkier due to the length. Not to mention its almost triple the price.

For small RC jobs, I prefer the sears/Ryobi driver

Correction: I just looked up the stats and the Hitachi IS lighter. The difference in feel I think is most of the weight on the Ryobi is centered in your palm.

+1 I hear ya why spin your screws so fast.... easier chance to strip cross thread it works. and is less expensive and I'm not a cheap guy with my tools. IMHO the Ryobi has a nice soft grip and not to mention I charge it once a week, next time your in Home Depot check it out.

Who's arguing?? We are just comparing, sharing our views & opinions. Isn't that what forums are for?

This is a great point! I held the Hitachi too and didn't like it cause of the bulky length..
