Hi all.
Just wondering what are a good set of hex drivers that don't round off at the sight of a hex screw but don't cost mega bucks?
I've had a look around and there heaps of different ones people are selling, from cheap sets of four with alloy handles on ebay, to $40-50 sets from retailers.
Anyone share what they have found are good sets and ones to steer away from ?
I just want these to use on my heli stuff and nothing else.

Cheers,
Jason.

Good tools don't come cheap. I'd recommend the MIP/Thorpe drivers or the Team Losi drivers. The Team Losi drivers have replacable tips. The MIP/Thorpe drivers do not have replacable tips, however a new tip can be ground on the end if it breaks. In the nine years I've been in the hobby I have never broken a tip.

I have a $30 set and the cheap Helproz $16 set. I like the heliproz set better. The handles are easy to grip and they have a hole going through the handle to put a rod through to make them a T- handle when extra torque is needed. I've never been able to strip them even with exceesive force used.

I've got the Heliproz $19 set and I really like them; this one doesn't have the ball ends. The Heliproz $29 set has both straight and ball ends.
