Default Who's who?

Hey all, I would like to know if there is a list of which distributor carries which manufacturers? Such as.....Tower hobbies does not carry Parkzone nor do they carry Losi. On the other hand, Hobby-Lobby and such does not carry Great planes. So if there is a master list that someone could link, that would be great. Thanks in advance for everyone's post!

I don't know of any such list of who carries what. I've always just done a search on the plane, engine or whatever I was looking for and chose from the list of suggested websites.

Everything listed at http://www.bestrc.com is distributed by Hobbico in the US. Tower is their retail store.
Everything listed at http://www.globalhobby.com is distributed by Global in the US. Hobby People is their retail store.
Hobby Lobby has a few brands that appear to be exclusive to them.
Ace Hobby imports ThunderTiger and a few others. They only sell to dealers, including Tower, Hobby Lobby, etc.
SIG and Hitec are independent and sold by multiple dealers. I know there are more independent companies but these are the ones I thought of in a minute or two.
"Almost" everything else appears to be distributed by Horizon. I've never found a listing of Horizon's "exclusive" brands.

Tower does not sell items distrubuted by Horizon, and Horizon does not sell items distrubuted by Hobbico.
