I am assuming you mean prices. To anwser that, on Japanese brands, the parts are the cheapest in the world

Try Akihabara, that is the electronics district. I think there are several big ones there. You can get to Akihabara quite easily by subway. But once you get there, it could be confusing as it's a pretty big area. The best thing is to ask your concierge to call and check ahead and draw you a map of the shops from the subway stop.

If you are ther, print this out and use it. It is a guide to Hobby shops in Akihabara. I used it a month ago to find them all. RC Champ was my favorite.
