Default Comprehensive List of Available Electric Flight Components w/ Specs., Prices, & Links

I have been developing a resource where people can find and compare all the available options for a given component in one place, i.e. lipos, gyros, servos, motors, etc. With the hundreds of products and choices that are available it has become an exhaustive task to even locate all the product options which exist.

It is in spreadsheet format and allows you to sort by headings as well as filter the given lists. Outside of normal statistics (weight, dimensions, etc.) there are columns which allow you to sort to determine which battery offers the most bang for the buck (capacity per dollar) or capacity per weight (mAh/gram).

The website will be updated daily and also provides a link to the lowest price available online to purchase each item. Check it out here:

http://progressiverc.com/research

Feedback on this work in progress would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know what you would like to see added and information posted in this thread will be incorporated into the website. So, if you'd like to see a product that I am missing, you see a stat that is wrong, or if you know where you can find an item for a lower price please post it here.

Cheers,
David

Default Low pricing, $2 shipping, fast service before & after

Take a look at www.headsuprc.com for lots of good low priced items. Believe he still has everything shipped at $2 for ea. order no matter the size.
Great idea.

That's a lot of good work. I did notice that on each LiPo page the search text always reads 2S

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave in a well preserved body,
but rather to skid in sideways totally worn out shouting, Holy Crap... what a ride.

Thanks for pointing that out! I will revise the search text and will also be adding heading lock to make it easier to read as you scroll down the page.

If anyone notices any specific products that need to be added or see a lower price than what is shown please post a link to it so that I can get it updated.

I have added the balance connector type as part of the description for each battery as suggested by another user. Here is a partial screenshot of the 3S LiPo battery list filtered by "2100 mAh" and sorted by mAh per gram as an example of what's available:



If you see any updates or revisions that need to be made please let me know.

Cheers!

write2dgray, You've done a lot of work.
Is it possible to have a rating system for the different retailers?

I rather spend a little more from a vendor that gives me great service and returns without hassles.

Blackdogrc has been like that for me, and I even though his prices are competitive I would pay a premium for service like his.

Paul,

I am working on finishing up a seperate list of online sites and vendors which will have some form of rating system for each site. I am also making good progress on providing a more complete list of motors and have recently added the complete line of AXI, Neu, and Scorpion motors with all the motor parameters.

I don't know how good his stuff is, but he's helpful and you can't beat $2 shipping no matter how big the order. I just ordered a power setup for my cub, including motor, esc, ubec, brackets and prop adapter, for $75 shipped. But for $10 more I could have gotten a Scorpion motor which is probably better quality. The esc and ubec are where the real savings were. So, we'll see how they hold up.

Howdy cloud-9,
Jeff has been very helpful to me and I'm extremely pleased with his service and products. I'm positive you'll be happy too. I had a 2200mAh lipo I'd gotten from him puff up on me after about 4 or 5 flights. I emailed him asking what could've caused the problem and he sent me a new one that day at no cost to me. 95% of what I have now has come from Jeff so I'm very happy with what he's sent me and I haven't heard anything bad about him so...

Standing By,
SJ

The website has been updated with products from BlackDogRC and HeadsUpRC. I have also added the complete line of AXI, Scorpion, and Neu motors to the brushless motor list. The gyro list has also more than doubled and represents a fairly comprehensive and current list of all the gyros out there.

Cheers!

Good work. I'm a newbie and found your compulation to be quite helpful! I've been searching for a good flight sim I could use with the DX7 that I have on the way. I like the FS one by Hangar 9. It allows you to use the DX7 via wireless. Excellent job!!

Thanks,
Mike

I hope that everyone can benefit from the information. It can be a daunting task to find and compare all the product options which exist. Please feel free to ask any questions you have about the info presented and I'd be happy to help explain.

Cheers and a Merry Christmas to all!

Thumbs up Sim

Mikewratterman (sp)
Hey mike, I have a Real Flight 3.5 and I am less that enthralled with it + it will not use my DX7.

I saw a new Phoenix Sim at my LHS & it blew me away using a DX7. Things, like reflection in water where a Heli was setting, Ripples on a lake when overflying the water in ground effect, visability in the distance and a realistic sound when it crashed into the lake were all unreal. My LHS does not have it but I ordered it from Heliguy in the UK. Price delivered was just right and it is on the way. Heliguy says @ 5 days but it is Christmas so...........

The LHS said it uses much less memory in your computer and was very helpful in learning a new, difficult 3D manuever. The manuever worked out great for the first time in the field. He has all sims but said, Phoenix is the best of all.!
Good luck EdH

I have made some major updates to the lists to include a lot of new products and pricing on lipos and other electric flight components. Many new brushless motors have been added including the complete line from AXI, HiMax, Hyperion, Neu, Plettenburg, Razor, RS-Motoren, Scorpion, and a few others. Let me know if you see any I missed and I'll continue to add to the lists. Enjoy!

No problem, I'm glad I can give back to the community and save everyone a lot of time and trouble.

The lipo list is very complete and I am now working on bringing the motor and servo lists to a more comprehensive state. Hundreds of motors have been added recently with vital statistics in an effort to get caught up on all the products which are around. If you see any products that need to be added, have stats to help complete or correct a current listing, or see a lower price please post a link.

I am also working on finishing up a list of all the different heli models with significant stats as well as a list of online sites and resources which should prove helpful.

Cheers!
David

The latest lipos from DualSky and the Cellpro Revolectrix Black Label line have been added as well as hundreds of additional brushless motors and ESCs. Here are the current counts for each list:

Keep up the great work David!

And don't forget about Todd's Models and Stevens Aero during your research. They also give military discounts.

Thanks for the tip Frank, I show many products carried by those two companies.

All the lists have been recently updated to include many new products and the motor list has been expanded to include every motor from Hobbycity/United Hobbies. The complete lines from many other manufacturers including Mega Motors, MP Jet, MicroDAN, Torcman, Suppo, Turnigy were added and there are now over 1200 motors listed in total. Columns can be sorted in the spreadsheets by clicking on the column headings. Enjoy!

http://www.progressiverc.com/Research.html

Here's a snapshot of what's currently listed:

I just got through updating the lists with many new lipos, ESCs, and motors. All the brushless motors from E-Flite have been added to the list as well as the complete updated line from Medusa Research. There are now over 1400 different motors listed! Let me know if you guys see anything else that needs to get added and help me and your fellow hobbyists out by posting up a link.
