+1. I bought a Dewalt last weekend. It is "Gyroscopic" meaning you control it by turning your hand. I am a little skeptical about this technology but I have not used it in practice yet. Waiting for some hex bits to come in.

There are several versions of the unit - went with the version that has the clutch/torque control.

So far the unit better control at slower speeds than my Milwaukee which was more of a light switch.

Generic spare batteries from Amazon work perfectly.

This tool makes maintenance a breeze, the gyro effect works great along with the clutch to control speed and torque.

I have the Ryobi and it is very durable. In fact I have two of them as I picked up a second at a yard sale. They have lasted a long time and the batteries hold up as well.

This thing is awesome. Keep in mind features if you are a lefty. This Dewalt works great. Models like the Hitachi, for example, have the switch under the thumb for righties. Not very useful if you are a lefty.

+1 for the Hitachi. I bought one 10 years ago and it's still going strong. I'm still using the original batteries. They don't last as long as they used to, but they are charged in 30 minutes. And 1 battery still lasts longer than a race weekend.
The clutch is very good. I use setting 2-3 on M3 screws and 4-5 on M4 screws. These settings screw in the screw for about 95% and then I do the last bit by hand.

+1 on Hitachi, clutch is well suited for RC cars and lasts for years, for me. Suggest checking HD or Lowe’s on price.
