Default 450 Parts Sources

I've been looking for the best online retailers for 450 Parts, but in addition to having good prices and stock, I'd like to be able to buy from a place in my country...er region.

I know it's a big thing to ask. It seems with many online retailers, actually listing a location of their store is very unusual...just try to find it, and when it's not listed, it would seem, means they are in mainland China. I could be wrong, but it really is hard to find on some of these sites. No phone, no area code to check, no ship from location mentioned...

I'm just thinking, if I ordered parts from a location in my hemisphere, or, even better, in my half of the US, I might not have to wait so long. So, location of the business is important. Then price, then service. And if they wait 5 business days to address an online order, well, then it's not.

Just sayin

Ron's HeliProz South - Click Customer Login, then Create New Account. They have better pricing on ALL items for registered customers. I never had a bad experience with them. They do have a storefront, the internet sales guy [Nathan] picks up the phone too and will answer questions. Very good prices. Top quality, original merchandise.

Highflyheli,com has been my ace in the hole lately. 10% off Align's list price and they've had free shipping lately. I've never waiting for more than a few days to get my order. Best personalized service in the business IMHO. I love these guys!

Just keep paypal between you and them and you'll have good clean
records and shipping information. I prefer mainland USA at times
depending what it is, but somethings are pretty hard to find.

Thanks, that's a great place to start. At least I know you give them a thumbs up.

Just placed an order with Ron's Heliproz South. Close enough without Sales Tax.

Helidirect is freaking awesome! I think they are out of Maine. I get my stuff shipped free if over $100 and less than a week to California! Great prices and service too!

I really think we (in the heli industry) are quite lucky to have the kind of quality retailers we do.

Not many other industries are so well supported.
