Iíve looked around some more, I want to invest some into my set, but some of these prices are really hard to swallow for just a couple tools. Whatís the best budget set that you guys would recommend?

Default Tools for Nitro Maintenance

I want to get a nice tool set dedicated to my RC stuff. The last one I picked up from Amain was horrible quality.
Whats a good kit youíd recommend to pick up?
I donít like using normal Allen wrenches with screws this small, like having something with a handle.

What is your budget? MIP are top of the line.

I use Team EDS for my allen wrenches and work great.

Best budget tools are MIP speed bits IMO. They still aren't the cheapest, but they will save money and time on rounded out screws if you wrench a lot.

Upon looking I'm kinda surprised the speed bits are expensive as they are, I thought I got them for a good amount cheaper a couple years ago.

MIP are hands down the best. I just picked up the full SAE and Metric set and I cannot believe I have made it the last 22+ years in this hobby with crappy tools.
