The tools that come with the kit are decent I would get the pitch gauge from one of the many dealers R.R has listed on the home page...

A cheap caliper is very handy for setting things up. I picked up a cheap one from Lowe`s for 12 bucks.

How did THAT get in there?

Why people mentioned temp gun? For E-heli, whether tachometer will be more useful? Also what is "alan driver"?
Sorry for these stupid questions :P

a small 25 dollar temp gun can be very usefull for keep an eye on how hot the motor gets and even more importantly how hot your batteries get, I didn't reallise how hot mine were getting until I shot them with the temp gun, they really shouldn't get above 140 or they can be damaged, ideally try to keep them below 130. Tachometer is also very usefull in setting up your pitch curves. As for the Alan drives they are basically fancy alen wrenches with nice aluminum handles, they make life alot easier :-) best of luck to you.
