Default Best RC Retailer

Heres a question for all you experienced hobbyists.

Which site do you think is the best to buy RC stuff from in terms of cost, reliability, shipping etc?

For customers in the US, there are 3 major distributors. Who you choose depends on what you want since they handle different things.
www.towerhobbies.com
www.hobbypeople.net
www.horizonhobby.com
All 3 have an excellent reputation for reliability in the US. I have no idea how good they are if you are not a US customer.

There are dozens of others. Some have better pricing than the big 3 on some items. Some sell things the big 3 do not carry. Some break up sets and sell the components in any combination you want.

You might want to relable the thread with Best RC Retailer.
MHO, Tower has been great to work with. I had to make some changes to an order that included a backorder item that had changed the estimated in-stock date, and they substituted an item and shipped it same day without hassle and included all of the applicable discounts.
I like to support my LHS's, but they have been tremendous to work with so far.
