Need A Hobby Store in Los Angeles!!

I live in Los Angeles and I know of a few hobby stores ( like hobby people and the hobby place) but does anyone know of any better electric parts dealers? I'd like a place that had f5b, edf etc but I doubt thats possible around here. Anyone know of a place that sells gws stuff and lipoly so I can atleast get my nemisis flying? Thanks, Rhett

I am from farther north, but have frequented a couple of shops in the Sepulveda and Burbank areas.

Try Tony and Addie's and Jay's.

Hobby shops in my area are.

Well i have a bit of a drive about 30 mins. but i go to Hobby Warehouse in lakewood california, almost every week. for my plastic models i saw some lipos and some gws, stuph though, im into r/c cars not planes so much so i dont know if they have what you need but they are in L.A. county just not L.A.

There is another hobby shop down the street from them and i dont go there.

I've been buying from in Orange, CA. They even cut the Horizon Hobbies prices by 10-20% on a lot of models.
