For those who would like to keep some money for the pocket. This works great for RC and probably not so good for home.http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/...10000003+90401

I saw that one at home depot. It looks good for the money. If i wasn't looking for a porche, i would consider that one.

I have had this hand-held driver set for almost a year now. Lightest I have had, and the battery never every dies. Plus it fits everywhere!

My pit box contains:

http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/...10000003+90401

and

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXUFH7&P=7

Just built my 808 with these. Plenty of torque - it will strip screws if you aren't careful. Great battery life. Clutch. LED. I looked at the uber-dollar Makita and Bosch drivers too, but really, for RC this is all you need.

NOOOO that kit Suck's...the driver is hit and miss...either it LOCKS the bit into to the point you have to use plyer's to remove it or its sooo lose it wont hold the bit in properly...Not to mention the tips are NOT machined out like every other quick bit is....the 2.5 Twisted about a Full revolution on the first screw i tried to remove with it....I WILL not recommend this kit...if anything buy the specific bits you need and forget about this JUNK Ofna driver.....I also called OFNA on the driver not holding the bits properly and they Blew me off buy saying I must have done something to it to cause it.....PSH freekin DJ at Ofna is THE BIGGEST GOOF BALL known to man kind....If he only knew what he was talking about.
