Default websites?

Not a very popular hobby these days. What is the best website to purchase C/L airplanes and accessories? Or the most popular?

Tower has a few ARF's, as well as engines, and the basic accessories to get going.

Here's another excellent site, mostly for CLPA (Stunt) and supporting products.

www.rsmdistribution.com

RSM is run by Eric Rule, a great guy. He manufactures his kits, and has access to tuned engines, which he also lists in his on-line catalog.

CL is still alive and well around St Louis, and on the west edge, around KC and Topeka, KS.

There is also:

Okay, I mentioned Eric a few posts above, but I do think he is worth some more attention...

www.rsmdistribution.com

...which does an excellent job of kit prep, far more than justifying the difference from the prices we senior-flatulate types remember from 'back in the day' when the kits first appeared, die-crushed out of waterlogged warped iron wood. GOOD catalog! Great guy in charge! Laser-cut pieces that drop out of the blank when you lift it, AND FIT! when you join them, and are out of unobtainium-grade prime balsa.

CL is alive and well, but we keep it a deep, dark family secret. Is you is, or is you ain't one of the fambly?
