Default what hex driver sizes for 450?

arriving tomorrow, want to be prepared, can anyone say what sizes there are of allen drivers? I know it comes with little alley things, but I like my fingers... so Id rather have real allen drivers ready.

Links I found:

Look at the 450 V2 manual online (3mm, 2.5mm, 2mm, 1.5mm)
http://www.heliguy.com/i/Trex450SE-V2Manual_ebook.pdf

I have the 450 Sport model, and the book says I have:
(2.5mm, 2mm, 1.5mm, 1.3mm). I measured, and that's not quite right. seem to have 2 x 1.5mm instead of a 2mm. Didn't need the 2mm. The 2.5mm is used for the blades, and the one supplied is fine. Get a good 1.5mm. Most screws are that type. You won't need the small one (used to lock the landing gear - don't need a good one for that).

I triedto find proper hex drivers at local hardwares stores and lowes and home depot and was unsucessful and then found these on the net http://www.helidirect.com/align-hexa...z024-p-529.hdxand http://www.helidirect.com/align-hexa...50-p-11015.hdxAs the above post said your going to need 2, 1.5mm driver for tightening you blade grips to the feathering shaft. But i built a 450 and 500 using those hex drivers I linked and they work great.

Im expecting to hopefully find what I need at hobbytown USA, unfortunately I know even if there was a prayer that HD or lowes had a decent allen wrench that wasnt attached to a pocket knife contraption, it wouldnt be metric
