    Amainhobbies is the best place i could find with the cars i needed, everything i see though parts wise, and the parts get expensive compared to my local hobbie store. The shipping rules are just not good, free shipping only on that part then you pay for ever thing else, and shipping is like 10 bucks for ground then all the way up to 80 bucks for the fastest shipping, but there ok for there cars, just not the parts

    They always seem to have what I am looking for and they give a bunch of great options for shipping. The processing time is super quick and the parts all come safe and secure. I always look to A Main before I order from somewhere else because any LHS is a super long ways away from my home.

    I order all my cars through my LHS, but when i dont i always use amainhobbies.com, first when they say its in stock the mean its in stock ready for shipping, i ordered my blitz there and the next day it was shipped from there facility, they also have a youtube page were you can see the warehouse. They shipped right on time and was just how i would ask. But when they dont have something in stock it takes them awhile to get it in stock. But over great buy with the best prices i could find from a trusted online store. Hope this was helpful.

    Amain is a great place for me to buy a little bit more rare items that I may not have here in Finland.
    The shipping has always been reliable and the order usually arrives in two weeks with the cheapest shipping alternative.

    I have not ordered from A-Main but a handful of times, but each has been a great experience. Prices have been competitive, selection is awesome, and my order was processed and shipped quickly, which is good when I live on the east coast, and my order is shipping from the west coast. And now with Aaron Waldron working there, A-main just keeps getting better!

    Excellent On-line Store…One of the best.
    Only ever had one problem: Customer Service issue – Bought a Hakko Soldering Iron from them and the collar that attaches the Iron to the base station was broken and they wanted me to send the whole thing back. I know most on-line places operate this way, but why should I have to incur another shipping cost. when all was need was plastic collar.
    I phoned Hakko Directly and they fixed me right up at no charge. That’s CUSTOMER SERVICE.
