Hi, I have a raptor 50V2...

I was wanting a good decent and not too expensive hex driver and screwdriver set.

I was also interested in spare hex nuts and bolts, also screws.

Where do you think is the bext place to get these?

Also note, i'm in Australia, so I need postage at a decent price.

Thanks heaps.

Loz

Loz, search for Thorpe drivers. Top of the line drivers.

Thunder Tiger sells spare screw sets. One comes with all the self tappers and another with all the machine screws and set screws. Look in the back of your manual. I'm pretty sure they're listed.

drivers made by Wiha of Germany are nice
and they make screwdrivers, nutdrivers, hex
drivers etc. Should be easily avaible in AU.

However, do yourself a favor and get a
GOOD hardened 2.5mm wrench (fits 3mm
cap screws). As noted, the Thorpe's
are GREAT.

Ball drivers are nice but dont count on them
as the only driver.

Loz,

Good ones on HeliAddicts:

http://www.heliaddicts.co.uk/index/heliaddicts1.htm

I've got these ones:

http://www.heliaddicts.co.uk/shopka...duct.asp?id=270

They're very hardened so they don't chew. They've also got holes through the handles so you can put a shaft through and get more torque (so you can chew your undercarriage screws Loz! )

Don't know what the postage is like from the UK, but I can get them and forward them onto you. That'll probably be cheaper.

Cheers,

Loz (the Real one)

I have had great luck with dynamite allen drivers and craftsmen make a modeling/hobby screwdriver set with long handles and bits I have very large hands so I know what you mean when you say small handles that sucks it seems like mosth of the tools are made for grade school students, good luck

I second the Heliproz recommendation. They've got a nice set for Hex drivers for $19.

I've been using Century's hex set. Maverick's in my opinion, sux!! But my favorite hex set, is the one that came with my heli.. because you can never over tighten the screws
