I'm in Montreal and I can't find any of this locally.

Can anyone please recommend an online retailer to find an AMP and accessories please.

Is there any particular reason why you want AMP battery and charger? I'm sure there are many competing manufacturers of batteries and chargers that would be easier to get online than one specific brand.

Oh the make and brand of the quick charger means nothing to me, whatever works and is recommended.

I'm new to the hobby, it would be preferable to pick up the AMP Monster Truck, large battery (as large a I can get) and quick charger all in the same place.

Too bad Amazon.ca doesn't carry it like amazon.com

Thanks!

Ah- I see.

The AMP monster truck is marketed by Horizon Hobby- not much of a choice when it comes to price comparison shopping. Horizon tends to set the price for both online and local retailers with not much variation (I don't know enough to explain why, but this is my general observation of HH product pricing)

If you are going to order online, I dont think it makes a difference if you order all from the same place. As long as you get it all on time

For charger, I would get a standard B6 dual power charger Aliexpress is my fav place to get it cheap
http://www.aliexpress.com/item/New-i...1-14fd149ea3e8

You can also get batteries there, looks like the AMP monster truck runs a brushed motor using a standard ESC on NiMh. If you got a battery(s) from aliexpress, the shipping would not be a problem because NiMh is not restrictred as much as LiPo's are.

Good luck!

Thanks, I figured maybe there a site that offers free shipping or something like that.

Thanks for the link to the charger, I'm really starting from knowing nothing at all, it's possible in the future my other kids would want RCs too, is the charger you recommended capable of doing multiple batteries, possibly up to 4 simultaneously?

Is it a charger I could possibly outgrow, I don't have an issue with spending a few extra bucks now and having something long term than having to upgrade to something later.

Do you have a high capacity one you recommend from Aliexpress? I was looking at 6 or 7 cell to get the most play time as possible, I have a lot of kids
