Default 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.

Please call me John. I came up w/ Max2112 when I thought you were all internet predators after me Lucky Charms!!
