They are decent, we use them daily in the shop. But so far 2 of the 4 Set Screws have stripped out, not a big deal, we just re tapped them and Green loctited the bits into the handles.

If you are looking for a good set, may I suggest the MIP Thorp Drivers. Very nice tools!

+1 on MIP

The MIP Thorp drivers are pretty much all I use now. They are a little more money, but they have lasted better than all the others I have owned.

I bought them one driver at a time starting with the 2.5mm and adding to the collection as funds allowed.

Why use lighter fluid when gasoline works sooo much better! | http://www.newportnewsrc.org/

MIP Thorp and PB Swiss tools are the best IMO. However, they have full size handles and it is very easy to strip or overtighten screws with them. The best for RC helis that I found are the Wiha drivers. The handles are small enough that I don't strip screws out during assembly. The price is reasonable too (You want some sticker shock, look at the price of PB Swiss). I reserve my MIP and PB Swiss tools for disassembly only.

I agree with the others on the Dynamite tools. They have cheap handles.

Wiha's are nice, but the My hands hurt bad after a building session. The Handles are just too small.

Just use the Mip's, and use common sense while torquing fasteners.

Get the MIP/Thorpe drivers and be done with it. They are one of the best investments you can make in this hobby.

I have that same set (Dynamite) and they're OK but as others have said I tend to find myself using my WIHA drivers more than I do the Dynamites. Just the feel is better to me. I think the Wiha's are better made and the same set of sizes will cost less than 1/2 of the set you're looking at. I got mine (Dynamite)for about $15.00 and bought it on impulse. Ya know, come to think of it, if I'd stop buying stuff on impulse I might be rich by now!!!!!

I have used those dynamite tools for a long time and never had any issues with them. I also have a complete set up for my rc cars.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

I wore out my Dynamite 1.5 and 2.0mm drivers in about 2 years. I won't live to see the day the tools I pictured in my above post wear out. They will probably get passed on to my grandchildren's grandchildren.
