Reliable Australian Supplier

Have been less than happy with HK's idea of customer service for a while now, so started searching for a local supplier.
Plus, now that the Aussie Dollar is so low, it's not really much benefit shopping O/S at all.


These guys are located in Perth, WA. Have received a few items from them, with no complaints.
Fast shipping
Great communication.
Reasonable prices.

I am sure there are other Aus companies. Maybe an Aussie vendor thread could be started?

Hi 2rex, the best online site i've dealt with so far has been http://www.multirotorgear.com/ who are located in Melbourne. I ordered most of my parts through them except for the frame and fpv cam for my first 250 quad racer.

Their website is a pleasure to shop on, great service and they only supply quality gear, and best thing is they are fast to ship and quick to reply to an email.

Now because HK has been a ball breaker of late, i'd suggest we take a ride over to Singpore to DroneMatter's- http://www.dronematters.com/
I bought my fpv cam from them, and they were fast to ship it out.

Grab your props from Mr El Guido aka http://www.multiprops.com.au/

Amazing service, and you'll get yours a pronto.

There's a few others, but the ones i mostly mentioned are Melbourne based.

Buzzhobbies has been my favorite. Can order on a weekday evening and the item will be shipped before I wake up. Love the reliability and also some friendly service! The instock product range is not my go-to favorite but has some interesting additions quite regularly.

Hobby King Australia and International warehouse have been great for me. Spent a lot here on mini products and economy shipping has been prompt (within 5-7 days).

nextfpv also managed to get some great products to me in a short time frame .

I've had no problems with HK, AU or international. Whenever I order something in the middle of the night, the AU warehouse have it shipped by 8.30am the following morning.

Multirotor Gear have amazing prices on some stuff, don't know how they do it. Will def order from them again.

I have bought a number of things from boltrc, but they stuffed up two of my orders. I'm not much of a complainer though and I can't find anyone selling GF 5030's for 48c a piece, so I'll keep going back. It was pretty annoying getting 30x 5030R's and only 10x 5030's though....

Mongrel Gears website is horrible to navigate, and their prices aren't very competitive IMHO so I haven't gone with them yet. The two items I was looking at from them weren't in stock so didn't help.

Theres no one place where you can get almost everything like HK[and you'll pay almost double for it if you do]

But--if you want quality stuff, its worth paying double or more.

Modelflight in SA are hard to beat on service[free freight on over $200 orders]
