Your local hobby shop.

They can make sure you get what you need, give you support after the sale etc.

Great hobbies does carry the AXI line and if in stock, will be at your door usually within the week.

Beware though........some of the AXI motors do not get packaged with the prop adapter assembly. Without it, you may have issue with attatching a prop. Just be sure to ask if it comes with.......

I see that Great Hobbies carries Dualsky motors. You can get two Dualsky motors for the price of one Axi. Axi's are good motors, but they are overpriced IMO. They do not normally come with the mounts and prop adapter; those are extra. Do some research, compare the specs. and save some money. The DUALSKY's are excellent motors at an affordable price. Dualsky's do come with mounts and prop adapters, but I would double-check that since the descriptions on Great Hobbies don't state that.

If you want see what they look like and read more detailed specs. than what is shown on the Great Hobbies site, see here.

It's not bad if you buy a bunch of things like motors or lipos all at once. Can't beat those Zippy 25C battery prices!
