On-Line suppliers

After taking ten years off from RC I'm ready to get back into the hobby. Other than Tower, who are the big players in mail-order and on-line kits, radios, and other supplies.

TIA - Pete

Yes, they are, duh! It says this at the top of their pages.

And the same item will be about $85 US at Tower. Here's some examples: Item CDN USD Tower Modeltech ME109 $129.99 $105.89 $89.99 TT Lazy Tiger $169.99 $138.47 $119.99 TT Lazy Cub $239.99 $195.52 $174.99

In addition to being cheaper, Tower also offers $25 off any purchase over $150. The price difference is particularly pathetic when one considers that the Great Hobbies site says the Thunder Tigers are on sale. Not much of a sale from what I can see.

For Great Hobbies, but not the consumer! Do you not COMPARE prices? I found one item on the Great Hobbies site that I actually considered buying, because I can't find it at any US dealers. However, after checking some other prices I decided I'd rather do without the item than paying their inflated prices.
