Default online stores

Who's most likely the best online parts store? I would say Stormer hobbies, they stock most of everything and their really fast to ship out your order.

I like RCplanet.com. They have great prices, and only charge $2.99 shipping for smaller items.

I would avoid gshobby.com I placed two orders recently within the past 2 months, and both times they had false inventory on their website. When I contacted them, they were not concerned with their mistake at all. They said simply when something sells out at their local store, it will not always be reflected on their website.

So how about keeping a better track of their inventory and taking it off their website when they sell something locally, that way I don't have to spend an hour putting together a wishlist, to find out after I place my order that the main part(s) I need are not in stock. They did not care either to make things better and keep me as a customer, even though I had placed numerous orders. Anyway, rant over. The point is to avoid them.

I have had great success with rcplanet though as they ship fast and have large inventory. Can't go wrong with A-main either although sometimes their prices are a bit higher than some of the others.

I use G S Hobby, frontrowhobbies.com/. Also R/C Pro Products. A-Main, I have never used Stormer or Hobby People. I will use Hobby King to buy my Lipos. And I have not dealt with Tower in forever. I am not saying that Tower is bad just I can get items from the other shops easier and quicker.

customer service sucks at stormer, i had an item missed in my last order and i email them, guess what, they just ignore my email.

i would suggest amain since its biggest online store in north america and i've never heard any complain from anyone
