Any hex driver will work when they are brand new and used lightly. The real test is how much hard use your drive can take and for how long. The cheap drivers will save you money up front but the ones I had always fail at some point and cost me a lot of aggravation. If you cant afford drivers then get a good tight fitting set of L hexes. I often used the L hexes to do the heavy work and used my dynamite cheap drivers to do most of the unscrewing.

This is a great idea for those that can't afford a good set of drivers. Sometimes I think that some of us forget that a $34 set of drivers is just not in the budget for some folks.

I was talking about the kit that comes in the zippered pouch with 1 handle. The ones u linked are fine, and I use 2 of those that I bought singularly...had them about 4 years, I snapped the 1.5 by over torqueing it, but 4$ I got a replacement shaft

That's the high end one from Dynamite. They have starter kits around $25. They work. And for the casual, couple times a month RCer. Would probably be fine. But I've worn out 2 or 3 of those sets

I highly recommend these Snapon hex bits:

I've been using mine for years with no trouble. Snapon makes some of the best tools in the world.

I have one if the starter sets and the hex bits are crap.

MIP or nothing. You won't ever strip a head again. I've heard good things about hudy, eds, and arrowmax too, but the MIP drivers I can buy locally.

What do yours look like? Did you look at my link? The ones I linked to extremely tough, meant for power tools. Mine are the same as when I bought them.

I'll keep that in mind. Snap-on doesn't make a screwdriver type 1.5mm hex, I've been looking for one.
