Default What to buy

I'm an expat living and working in China and new to RC.
I am looking to buy from the US or Canada as I have not been able to find a good store in Guangzhou or Hong Kong yet.

Any good stores in those places???

I am going Electric.
Stadium truck or Buggy??
Associated Team or Factory Team or Losi XXX-T (MF)

I need advice on all things: Chargers, batteries, ESC, Steering Servo.

Please help with any or all
Thanks

There are a bunch of great shops in HK. I'll try and get a list from a buddy that lived there for 3 years. He used to send stuff to me when he found some new/cool/cheap stuff.

Thanks, I look forward to getting the list if possible.

Are you an experienced flyer as I am just beginning? What is the Firebird like?
I was considering an EPP constructed electric powered slope soarer. Tough, can fly under power in a park and long flight time if on a good slope. I have seen some Wings like the Telink Tornado11 EPP Combat wing or the MIG 280 EPP wing incl Motor and prop. Any thoughts?

Are you able to swap batteries and other components between your cars and plane?

Sory 'bout the delay, been away for a bit. I have to check my email when I get home to see if my buddy in HK sent me a list of his favorite shops. I have only been flying since late summer. I just traded my Firebird for an AeroBird (it's got an elevator). I love 'em. The car stuff is too big for a lot of the park flyers, but that hasn't stopped me from modifying mine with a faster motor.
