I've ordered from them multiple times with no problems. They've been in business for many, many years, if they weren't good they wouldn't still be around.

I've ordered from Stormer on several occasions. Prompt shipping and they have great selection of stuff.

One of the best! He's not only a retailer but also a racer. I've never met him other than talking on the phone but he seems like a great guy. Anyway, you can't find a better online business period.

Cheaper for sure. The only thing I wish they had a more idiot friendly website. Most of the time I place orders at night and can't call. Plus if you don't know the part number it can be a little tricky to find. Other than that they are great.

Oh yeah, that's another thing to consider, his prices can't be beat. No gimmicks, just great prices all the time. Check his site often because he always has a sale on great products..

Used them several times, always a good experience. I love how they have so many manufactures, and even some antiquated parts for my older RCs.

I was told by jmackani to check his site. I found it to be a good site. The few things I looked up was cheaper but then again a few other things I found to be about the same price or a little more. Dang multi charger and 6s batteries aren't my deals of the day but that is what I'm looking for at the moment....
