US parts suppliers?
 
Hi-- getting back into the hobby, I realize I"m gonna need parts from time to time (often?). Can people here suggest US suppliers who ship quickly, usually have stuff in stock and don't charge outrageous shipping? I don't want to pay $10 shipping, for example, on a $3 servo which could be stuck in a padded envelope and shipped for very little. Thanks.

Use Heads up RC, $2.00 shipping if you buy 1 item or 100 items, its only $2.00 shipping except for the Larger airplane kits. Tower hobby has a lot of items for planes like cowls, canopy’s and covering, their shipping is not to bad. tell Jeff at HURC that Chellie sent you :)

Thanks.

As far as ESC's go, Castle Creations is located in the USA, and their electronic products are made in the USA, with USA and foreign components. I've got a whole bunch of CC ESC's and CC uBEC's (Switching type Battery Elimination Circuits) They've all worked very well. The only problem I ever had was with a Castle Creations recall on one of my high power ESC's several years ago. All went well, but it took some 6 weeks to get it back.

I have had very good luck with MotionRC.

Their shipping is 5$ for orders <$100 and free for anything over.
