Wood, adhesives, paint & such I get from my LHS, along with new stuff that I want to sort of check out in real life before buying. Some kits as well, when he gets new & interesting things in.


Standard stuff like servos, crystals, receivers, motors/GB and the like, I usually get online, if only for the convenience.

It still pays for me to check with my LHS though, because the owner will occasionally sell at a better price than the big online hobby shops.

ARF's, battery packs, charger, props, motors/gearboxes, wood, covering from two local electric flight shops (trying to help 'em stay in business, and their prices are about the same as online). If I need something they don't stock, I ask if they can order it for me before going shopping online.

Servos, radio: servocity.com (so you don't have to buy the standard servos bundled with the Tx).

Ok, I bought one ARF at Tower Hobbies also...

I get alot of my rc plane stuff from servocity.com. Otherwise Allerc.com is a great site to, with fast shipping and pretty good prices. Otherwise I get some stuff from my LHS, but there prices are super high.
