Usefull rc equipment and materials sites in Aus

Thought this kind of page was lacking when i was looking for some good online radio gear sites, so I grabbed an rc mag from my local store, and checked out all the sites, this is a list of what i think are the best and why: Enjoy!

> http://ozhobby.com/
Cheapest new 6ch tx i've ever seen, with a good range of ant suitable recievers and servos. Also have the $75 GWS charger.

> http://ultrahobbies.com.au/store/customer/home.php?cat=300
Ultrahobbies seem to have a pretty nice range of chargers. They also have pretty cheap micro recievers (as you can tell, i'm going to make an antweight).

> http://wattsuprc.com.au
Stock lithium ion batteries and other things such as a "fifth channel switch controller" (mmm Smile + a $77 5ch transmitter. Seems alright.

> http://www.frontlinehobbies.com.au
HUGE range of hobby stuff.

> http://www.euromodels.com.au/shop/index.php
Also a very pro looking site with a large amount of rc gear.

By the way, i opened this thread so people can share their experiences with good sites, which ones suck, and just show everyone them for the benefit of all ( that came off so gay Laughing )

Now what i would like is a site with carbon fibre sheets online from AUSTRALIA, like on the robot marketplace but in aus.

www.towerhobbies.com This is the best place I've seen for getting anything hobby wise.

Another top place is our own QLD owned and run Wings over the Downs, but you'll have to wait for Nick to post the link Smile

Did you read the thread topic. Tower Hobbies isn't Australian.

www.silvertone.com.au

home of the awesome 6ch mark 22 reciever,

also have failsafes and a little single way fet controller that plugs right into the reciever, sorta like a version of jakes fet controller.

expensive but you get what you pay for.

i think that ozhobby place is up near penrith... the actual store has bugger all in there but they do have a funky little race track

Not a great site but it is a great shop, owned/run by an RC hobby-ist.
He usually does work out to be cheaper than USA's Tower Hobbies (with postage freight) - except on specials of course...

No one will get a price list from this company.
You need to work out what you want and request a quote.

If you think it will be cheap, Think again. They supply equipment to factorys and automation companies that want high quality equipment.
so you will pay a premium..
