Default Where do you buy at Online?

I know some use the FS/FT forums and local but alot have to go to online stores to buy what they need. Does everyone go to towerhobbies.com or are there any other good ones?

rccompound.com, amainhobbies.com, bmainhobbies.com, stormerhobbies.com, towerhobbies.com and axiommotors.com are all places I have bought from in the past 6 months, as well as several ebay vendors and rcmart.

I regularly purchase from amainhobbies. I like that they offer a bunch of affordable shipping options for you to choose from. With the USPS Priority, it usually gets from from CA to Indiana in 3 days for only $5.85.

losipartshouse.com
rcboyz.com
amainhobbies.com
ultimatehobbies.com (mainly for kits or motors)

I rarely use tower hobbies as:

- Shipping can be pretty high ($9 for my last order)
- Prices are really not that good
- Slow delivery time

Only time I order from them is when those coupons they give make it better than the other places even with the shipping (my OS. VG for example).

Other than that however, I try to stick with what I listed above.

Seems like most places are around the same price. So which is quickest on getting orders out and to your house and shipping prices? Could you all post how long it takes from the day you place the order to when its in your hands? Also cost?

Of course cost would depend on what you get I'd say.
