Hey Chris,
I too like nitro- I just like anything with an internal combustion engine! LOL But getting more into electric too though. I'm just a basher, no racing yet. I don't have as much experience as most of these other folks, though I will chime in my limited experience buying online.

I've ordered a few airplane parts from "snhobbies"- they are in BC. They have some car and truck stuff too I believe. Pretty good service, selection and prices.

I've ordered a few airplane parts from hobby king too. Although they are mostly not top-brand stuff, I believe most of their stuff is decent quality, and good prices for sure.

I've gone to Eliminator RC in Winnipeg several times over the last 10 years or so, and also ordered a few things online from them. They have great service, knowlegeable staff. But I find them a bit pricey, although thats probably because I'm comparing them to online store prices. Definately recommend them.

Then there's always good ol' ebay. I've actually bought more parts from ebay than anywhere else. You just have to make sure to research exactly what you want first, and only buy from sellers with good feedback.

Hope this helps,


PS, are you Army by any chance?

That's the best link in this thread: I found a hobby store 20min from where I live that I had no idea even existed!

Re: Best place to order R/C online in Canada

I checked the ones with websites first, and called around checking stock and prices. It sometimes pays to know exactly who has what. Closest is always first choice, but I have to say, Hobby Hobby has the biggest selection and best prices.
Have a look

Re: Best place to order R/C online in Canada

Just want to share guys. I've ordered a RC backpack, Proline body, spare parts and misc items for a total of 7 lbs from Amain Hobbies (USA based). Total of $138 + $3 shipping USD ($150 CAD in all in my credit card) Placed the order on July 12 and it was delivered today. Talking about shipping discount $3 for USPS Priority Mail international, that's a steal. I only go to my LHS for quick fixes, stuff like chemicals(paints, motor spray, etc). All I can say is wow, no taxes were charge when the delivery guy handed to me.
