I just placed my second order from Stormerhobbies.com and they are great. My stuff showed up 2 days after I ordered it. Accurate and all. By the way, their pricing is virtually untouchable.

If thats not possible, then either Stormer or Amain, both top notch sites!

Not tower.

I ordered my last order from them on a monday and it took over a week to get to me. I found this to be totally inexcusable because they are in Nevada and I am in Arizona.

I will never order from them again.

They are in Illinois too, and it took them about 5 days to get me my stuff, some of it came from Nevada. They are good for somethings, like tires, wheels, motors, etc. But I would head to A-Main for everything else.



But my LHS comes first.

A-Main is dirt cheap on some things, and their shipping is 75% of what Tower's is, it is now my first choice.

Tower and A-Main. You need to be a member at Tower and buy min $150 at a time - I haven't paid for shipping anything from them in years. Have to lan ahead though.

Need something super quick though, I get stuff USPS priority from A-Main in 3 days. Have done business with Stormer as well, but have had mixed results. I don't care for their store front too much either.

I personally use The RC Shack for just about 90% of what I buy. My local hobby store carries a majority or airplane stuff & very little surface & boat parts. He can order it for me, but it takes about a week. I can order from these guys and have it in the same time.

Plus there have been a few times where I found a price online a little cheaper. All I did was email them a link to the site I found it at & they matched the price. You can't beat that.

I had to call once about 2 years ago to ask about returning a part that I ordered the wrong part number. I think the guy I talked to (Jim maybe) was the owner, very helpful & easy to work with.
