Default GET THE RYOBI $40 HOME DEPOT

It has a clutch, is lipo and also is a impact! Isnt technology grand! This thing is sweet! Also it has the speed 1/4 chuck-which basically holds the chuck open until you install the next bit.

I like that integy set, I'm still using my integy hex drivers I've had 7 yrs, i use an eds metric tip set[4], switched to losi so bought a dynamite set[4]. The integy set is like getting 3 tips free.
As far as quality I think the dynamite set is highest.They fit a little tight so pulling screws off them is a pain, but I have yet to round off a screw with them.

I use my impact for home and RC, it's light and does not over turn, unlike all electric screw drivers where momentum turns the screw a bit further after i have release the button,

I use the impact to drive most of the screw in then finish with hand screw,

I rarely use the drill as the Ridgid is very precise, and the LI-ion charges in 30min to 1 hour.
most of my co-workers prefer makita, including me (for drills)
other brands we also like are milwaukee, hilti, and hitachi

a co-worker dropped his brand new 18v lxt impact from 20ft onto concrete
and it still worked fine, no damage

most of us like the makita just because of the quality of it
its lightweight and has alot of torque

the milwaukee's are pretty heavy duty
and their ratings are pretty under rated really

the hilti stuff are built like tanks
and feels like you're carrying one too
but for us here their customer and repair service is top notch

the hitachi's are just cheap for us here
find them on sale alot here at some of the local stores
and they work great

we have long since abandoned dewalt for drills
including their hammer drills since their bits uses a different
spline
only thing we like them for are their worm drive circular saws

but all of this is totally off any rc subject haha

yeah i love my set

one thing i did forget to mention was about the rigid stuff
just take them back to home depot if you have a problem
and they should take care of you right then and there

tools have a similar aspect in technology like rc's do
if a company doesn't up their game, they get left behind
dewalt used to be a great choice for drills and such
everyone hopped the bandwagon and went lithium-ion
even ryobi has their li-ion batteries and tools to match
dewalt took a while to release theirs
kinda like how associated took a while to create and
release their buggy and truggy
