Default 1/4 hex driver for electric screwdriver

Just picked up a Ryobi at homedepo for 29.99! So excited. Doing a little bit of research, found Integy be least expensive, but looks like quality varies from a 12.99 set to a 49.99 set. Then, THS tools (out of stock). What are you using? Any recommendations?

EDS? Package in some useless bits.
HUDY? Too much??

Thanks.
PS. I have Losi and Traxxas, so i need both ends cover LOL

BTW, are all 1/4 driver with quick release can be used with the electric screwdriver like from Ryobi or Hitachi, right? I do not want to buy the wrong thing. Thanks

EDS or Hudy. You might look at Arrow Max which should be the same as EDS. I have Arrow Max bits cause EDS bits were out of stock but there are doing well.

OFNA has an inexpensive 1/4 drive kit that works well in my mikita. They come in a nice little case too.

Ofna is this the best bang for the buck, I've had a set of standard & metric for 10 year's and none show any wear. If can put out cash the mip thorp is a real good tool but they are around $15 bucks a bit thow.

I got the Hudy tips. All I really needed was 1.5, 2.0, and 2.5mm anyway. Was my first Hudy tools and was really impressed with how well they have been holding up I got the screwdriver versions of the size also.

I done the same thing and I love my hudy tools. They are exspinsive but in my eyes they are worth every penny. I haven't striped one screw sence I started using them.

Have the same set. Makes life easier when breaking down my trucks for maintenance. Make sure you use a low torque setting when tightening screws. Then hand tighten the rest of the way. That way you don't strip the plastics.

yes, all 1/4" drive quick change drivers are interchangeable with all electric drivers! MIP/Hudy sells nice quick change drivers but need to buy each size seperately! Ryobi or Hitachi sets will do the job!
