For a full set of dynamite drivers it was 16 bucks at fastcats, i bought 2. They are cheap and good entry level. Hobby Hobby also carries a nice cheap line.

I have 5 different types, listed in order of my opinion of quality/workability, MIP, Dynamite, Hudy, Integy, F&S. MIP the tips are not replaceable, but i have been using them for at least 7 years now and still just like new. all the rest have replaceable tips, Dynamite and Hudy have a good gripping surface even with oil/silicon fluids or dirt on your hands. Integy has a narrow handle that I find a little hard to use if my hands are dirty in any way, but a good length tip on them which accounts for a lot.
Do keep in mind, all of these are of machined tips Not cast, and will last you a long time if used right, if you have a stubborn screw especially on an engine that has been thread locked...heat it up first, always apply A LOT of downward pressure as to keep the tip deeply embedded in the screw head. and dont re use screws that are worn/ bent or suspiciously tight to take out.
I have yet to round off any one of these Allen drivers/slot/screw drivers, but i have stripped a few screws, in that case i had to dremel a slot and use my Hudy - 5.8 driver...Thanks Abiye for letting me in on how well this driver is suited to novarossi/ RB engine screws.
this will be one of the best purchases for this hobby hands down, then if you get serious an electric screw driver with the allen driver tips, I got mine from Ron and Dave at Pinnacle hobby.
