you know what, in many ways this is a very interesting topic, but my local hobby shop is the post office and there's no way of getting around it without driving at least 90 or 100 miles. Postage - $10-$20, gas about $75. On the bright side, 2 R(egional)Hobby shops have tried to be very accommodating to my needs. The closest one to me, unfortunately is a dirt RC guy, but I keep checking on him - just in case he see's the light and takes to the air (j/k)
