I use the Ryobi with EDS tips. Works great 1 charge will build a whole kit. I usually set my clutch on the softest setting and hand tighten the rest of the way, I just like to have a feel for how tight they are.

The LED is actually useful at times. The drill I use for work has one too and I would have never thought it was a good idea until I started using my drills with them.

Yep that's the one I use. And I have 2 of them so I don't ever have to change the bit for my losi cars. Most screws are either 3/32 or 5/64 with the hudy tips it's the best setup ever. Swap a servo? No prob change diff oil? Kids stuff.

Frank can you move your tips in and out while they're locked in? Mine seem to have some play when installed. I believe it's the large groove they have in them for the quick change chuck.

One of the best, even better than the 2.4volt one I have had for 8 years.

I have the ryobi fro home depot and it works great. One One charge lasts a long time and the clutch has some nice light settings that prevent stripping out screws.

Default Craftsman/rc pro

I have a craftsman. I think it was about 30-40 at sears. It has adjustable torque. It also locks when the trigger is not engaged. THAT is awesome for breaking loose motor screws/ anything that is a metal to metal connection. Whats really nice is that you can use it while its plugged in and charging. I leave mine on the charger most of the time.

Ive been using the rc pro driver set, bought them last year and i rarely use my hand tools. They are still in great shape. I use them an average of 3-4 days a week(between wrenching at home and at the track)

I first had the ofna bits... lasted a month. Ya get what ya pay for. Rc pro is the way to go.
