I agree. I have used a da-Gal4 insertion on the 3rd that is a bit sickish but homozygous viable. It is not as strong as the Bloomington act-Gal4 or tub-Gal4 but stronger than arm-Gal4 and quite efficient in knocking down a gene of interest to cause up to 90-95% lethality...

have you tried using Daughterless driver line Da Gal4
