Troy at av8 hobbies is great to talk to and will help you find what you need. Now if you know what you need, Aero micro has everything, not much talk! Best deals? Let me know when you find that--- Best deal on servos I ever got was Hobby people were giving cirrus 5.4 for 12.99 ea. (I bought 10!) Should of bought 100!!! Now I'm out! So I'm looking also! Btw, gws stuff is great, and better buying seperate than pkg deal with one exception, av8 gives nice discounts if you buy pkg, specially if you buy lots! Your welcome Troy!

Check out You can make a custom flightpack with the componets you want. I ordered my stuff from there. I thought it was a pretty good deal and it shipped fast.

I'd stay away from the Feather Reciever. Yes, it's light and cheap but most of the people that I've talked to have had glitching problems with them.
Go to RC Direct and look at a Berg 4 or if you want to save a bit more money look at their Berg 5. I don't think you can get a better RX and the price is pretty good.

I bought another just a few weeks ago and it was shipped to my door in 3 days with the crystal for 56.24...

I ifnd that AeroMicro ( and Aircraft World ( are pretty uch the cheapest on many things.

LOTS of online suppliers. I have also bought form Todd's Model, LightFlight R/C, NE Sail and others. Some have better prices than others, but they all sometimes have sales which make them cheapest on some items.

Bottom line, shop around.

In my experience 'cheapest' depends upon daily availability and 'sales'. usually has decent prices and their motor charts are helpful.

For micro servos do a search on Ebay. I purchased around 50 of these 6 gram micro servos for $8.99 each. I use them with my GWS Rx's and they work perfectly. They are really reliable as well, I have them in all my foamies and where ever I need to save weight.
