My Online Hobby Store

Hello gang,

I know some of us at times, some, most of the time. Prefer to shop online, browse through different online Hobby stores. Screen shop for the best deals, for a good (in the pocket) prices. eliminating the trip to the LHS, and sales people. (at times don't know anything )

Where do you mostly shop, that you most prefer, who's got the lower price online?

Wow, thats a tough question. I have a long list of online stores that I use. Are you looking for something in particular? Some online sellers specialize in certain areas (batteries, gws items, servos, etc.).

WOW!! sgil2001, That is a long list

I found servos that are also cheap. No, I'm not looking for anything, as of yet, but soon. This would be a great reference thread, as well, as informative.

I do most of my shopping online. I have placed MANY orders over the last year and a half and haven't had any problems. I like to be able to shop from my home computer at 11pm. I try to purchase things from the LHS when possible, but they just don't have everything I need.

Tony at has been a great help in figuring out the best battery packs for my machines. (He had my Pixie 7P ESC too.) Great prices. Rating: 1000%

Sal at has an incredible selection of hot flyin machines and has been available for questions when I had them. My Lil Luscomb was born there. I think Sal has everything you would ever want at one store. Rating: 1000%

And Jeffery at has been fantastic helping me configure my ParkHawk. I didn't want a stock machine, and what he helped me put together is awesome. He had the right servos and all kinds of other necessary stuff too. Rating: 1000%

I am verrrrry happy with these three guys. Rating: 3000%

I have been using mostly Web ordering since my big LHS is now gone. He did not have much e-flight stuff anyway. The next one is a 40 min drive north and they have a small contigency of e-flight stuff, but they snicker when you mention you fly electric.

So, I buy almost exclusivly online. I have used:

Servo City
Hobby Lobby
Tower Hobbies
Horizon Hobby
Lite Machines

Never any problems....
