A bunch of different places depending on what I'm looking for. Here are a few:

Amazon
Hobbypartz
Rcplanebuilder
Subsonicplanes
Rcsuperstore
Quantumhobby
Graysonhobby
Toysonic
Atlantahobby

I also use Tower - usually wait for a coupon before ordering.

Cool, thanks. Like I said, I either used Tower or ebay in the US, or HobbyKing when I don't mind waiting a month to get my stuff.

I thought I would share a pic of my Xtra Slick. It has survived many, many crashes, been glued back together, and has lasted about two years so far! Twisted hobbys is truly the best!

Don't know what those are. It also has got a chunk of foam out of the vertical nose that isn't quite visible from that angle...

Ah yes, haven't heard them referred to as pushrods keepers before. No need for em, the pushrods are really thick. Really easy to install, too!

oh ok. do you like the new design better? i think its more durable because there is no chance you will ever hit a pushrod in a crash

Well I've never had any trouble with the pushrods, and the plane has grown to be quite a good friend of the concrete driveway. I do like the new design a lot, but it seems quite a bit more complicated than they used to be. They use to come with a one-piece wing and the carbon spars all pre-glued on the wing and elevator. I remember it only took me about an hour to build the whole thing! at the time I was using hot glue though.

Blah looks like I'm cutting an aileron servo out of the middle of my pitts tomorrow. Just died. Doesn't power up at all. Was practicing rolling harriers and tried to level off to start again and spiral into the ground. Just a easily fixable nose crack on the fuse but the servo is dead.

Anyone had to do this yet? Or anyone have an idea of easiest/best places to cut without making a huge mess. Lol. I think I have it figured out but looking for other ideas as well.

Most definitely! We probably wouldn't have the 44" extra slick otherwise.

It's not a big deal at all - much easier and pleasantthan it seems.

Use a brand new Xacto blade (and handle) and cut around the servo - pop it out.

Build tip - when you gluing servos in, only put a spot of glue under the servo tabs.
That's plenty and makes it easy if the need to replace a servo ever arises.
