    RE: Your favorite online rc store

    Hard to choose between tower and horizon simply because certain brands are carried by one and not the other. Generally if I have a choice I go with tower, but for anything horizon makes I use them or amain.

    RE: Your favorite online rc store

    I HATE Tower, and really like amainhobbies.com. Horrizon is overpricedm but they have every part you can think of. Since they own Losi, they ship it right where Losi is and the charge tax (also get it in a day)

    RE: Your favorite online rc store

    I've been buying from Tower for about 15 years, and never had a problem....most of their prices are decent, but sometime their shipping is slow...I get Losi stuff from either Losi Parts House, or A-Main Hobbies....I can't get over how quick they ship..I did an order at LPH on a Wednesday, and my parts were in my mailbox on Friday....

    RE: Your favorite online rc store

    My favorite shop is Stormer. They're out in Montana, yet they still get me my orders faster than Tower, which is in the same state as me. They also have more reasonable prices (both products and shipping) than tower. Great place.

    Stormers prices are very good, but they take forever to ship to NYS.....I waited nearly 3 weeks for the ESC for my E Maxx to get here....it took them a week to get it on UPS....I wonder if they wait till the trailer is full or something....

    Both amain and LPH ship out of california. So thats something. If I order on Sunday evening (around 11pm) I usually get my order tuesday, and once I got it monday/ Amain takes 2 days to ship also.

    RE: Your favorite online rc store

    Tower seems to be dominating so far. I think the main reason I love them and why they are so popular is that their website is so informative and organized. Tower seems to provide as much info as they can on everything they carry. Too many websites out there just list a product name and picture......nothing else! And they also tell you if it's in stock or not. I know I personally will never buy something online if i don't know if it's in stock or not. Why wait for it when somebody else has it in stock?

    Kudos to Tower! If they opened up shop in Canada now i'd be in heaven!

    RE: Your favorite online rc store

    Tower has a really good search....if you have a part number, or a basic description, it can come up with several choices....If you enter the name of the car, truck, aircraft, etc, it will give you most of their stock specifically for that RC

    For me, it's Tower Hobbies, no if ands or buts about it, even if they are a little more expensive, they will always back you up.
    My dad and me have been customers for over 15 years, and we have never, never had one bad experience.

    RE: Your favorite online rc store

    I voted for Tower as well. Since the early 90s I have placed tons of orders with no issues and their inventory is fantastic.

    Too bad McMaster is not a hobby supply! I could have stock in that place [:-]

    Tower for me as well. My orders are very quick to arrive from them since they ship from Arizona. (depends where you are ordering from)

    Ebay, (RCboyz) if tower doesnt have what I need.
