Question
Is Todd's Models gone?

The website seems to have disappeared. If he's gone, I'm really gonna be frosted. He was one of my favorite guys to do business with.
I knew he was going to cut back, but didn't expect him to just go away.

I guess I am one who is not shocked. I used to use Todd and was very happy - until my last couple of orders. I won't go into details but he was off my good list after that.

That said - there are so MANY good vendors out there. For servos I have really liked Tomsrc.com - super cheap and fast shipping...

I also have a bunch of receivers purchased from him.

I also like Servocity.com, allerc.com, Advantagehobby.com and then the normal spots, Tower, Horizon and Hobby-Lobby.

For Hitec/Futaba stuff - give Tomsrc.com a try - very happy.

Here is what I just saw...for servos I commonly buy:

Hitec HS65
Toms = 19.22 or 18.93 each on a 3 pack
Tower = 21.99 or 21.20 each on a 3 pack

Hitec HS85 MG's
Toms = 28.26
Tower = 29.99

Hitec HS55's
Toms = 8.92
Tower = 9.99

Toms shipping 2.95 Tower 8.99

Seems cheaper to me.

I need some HS985MG's. At Tower I can get them for $53 a piece if I buy 4. That is probably going to be my best bet.

They are $63 at Toms

No question it pays to shop around. But again - there are other choices and I just pointed that out. For me Tom's has been good and cheaper than Tower - especially on Hitec receivers in lots of 3.

Servo city is really good when they go on sale too - get on their mailing list - sometimes they are like 25% off.
