Hobby Partz caters to the North American customers, namely the USA and Canada.
Hobby King caters to the entire world for the most part.
So if you are in the USA it tends to be worthwhile to order from Hobby Partz instead of Hobby King, if they have the items you want. Being already in the USA, Hobby Partz would have faster shipping as it doesn't have to come from China to the USA.
HobbyPartz.com is also Nitroplanes.com and also Xheli.com where the shipping on heli's and airplanes is a lot cheaper than having it come all the way from China to here.
Now then Hobby King stocks a lot of stuff, so if the others don't have it, and they do, then its a no brainer, you just have to have patience though. Sometimes the shipping is slower than usual coming from China.

I have had good luck with Hobby Partz, they have been quite fast sending stuff out. I love their recent free shipping promotion. I ordered a couple of large heli carrying cases, with free shipping. Man that was great as shipping on those cases is almost as much as the cost of the case itself.
