Those MIPs are the only ones I like better than EDS. Here is a link for just MIPs.

No I don't live up there, I'm down by Orlando. but because of the family business my mom comes down here every 2 weeks. I had the chance to move up there and I still may one day. Glad to hear there is good racing up there.

I have Hudy, 3Racing, EDS, RC pro, Team magic, Vision hex tools and they are very good. Also have a cheap set for heli's from EBay. Nice but not the highest quality: http://cgi.ebay.com/Hex-Screw-Driver...d=p3286.c0.m14

I use Integy, they are cheap and very good quality. I really like the MIP tools but the tips are not replaceable.

Does anyone know where I can get a quality ball ended T-handle hex wrench? I just need a 2.5 for removing engine screws, but a set would be ok too.

Not really looking for a ball ended driver.

thanks

Thanks
Tony, from Tony's screws mentioned a while ago best value for money is the Thunder Tiger hex drivers, available form Amain for under $30 for a set of 4. What better man to get information from, than the king of screws..
