I'm looking for a good set and not finding many brands. Also what sizes would make up a set for RC.
Thanks!

For $40.00 you can get a nice set of tools for fixing and adjusting your heli. Check out this Amazon page. http://www.amazon.com/Pieces-Tool-K...y/dp/B002OCZHLY

I have tried many "high quality" mini screwdrivers only to be disappointed in the fit or durability. It is amazing that Home Depot carries a convertible screwdriver that is one of the best I have found, at around $6 they are cheap enough to have a few. The blades are holding up very well and the fit is as good as I have found. The handle is large enough allowing for some good torque when necessary. It is the only screwdriver I bring when I go flying. The only negative I have found is that it may not reach deeply recessed screws.

Here is where I get my Vessel screwdrivers. I've used many screwdrivers over the years. These are some of the best money can buy.

I use Vessel too. They are the best IMO. BTW, there is no longer an official JIS for screwdrivers.

[quote]BTW, there is no longer an official JIS for screwdrivers.[quote]

I had not heard that, but in the link to the Vessels tools I provided they are showing the JIS logo.

Here is some additional information:

JIS B 1012

The JIS B 1012 is commonly found in Japanese equipment. It looks like a Phillips screw, but is designed not to cam out and will, therefore, be damaged by a Phillips screwdriver if it is too tight. Heads are usually identifiable by a single dot or an "X" to one side of the cross slot.[8]

Specific "JIS" standardized cruciform-blade screwdrivers are available for this type of screw.

Please read the link above regarding JIS designation for screwdrivers. It became extinct in 2008 when the now logo came into being.

What are the common sizes of JIS screwdrivers needed? I have a couple of JIS screwdrivers and they have come in handy but my set is not complete.

My Vessel P1 & P2 get used the most. Have P0, but it doesn't get used that much, except for maybe some non-heli stuff.
