Default Predator Part in North America?

Hi, does anyone have another source for Predator parts in North America other than Helicopter World? I've been getting parts from them, but their shipping costs are killing me. I bought a $19.00 part the other day and paid $21.00 shipping. I needed it so I had no choice.

Thanks.

That's usually what I do. They shipped it by usps... still can't figure out why it cost so much. I couldn't have been express since it took about 10 days.

I found Pivot Hobbies in BC. I ordered a bunch of stuff and they charges $12.00 for 4 day delivery. There prices are about a buck more than Helicopter World. But there is no duty... well I did have to pay GST.

I have a feeling that it may work out to the same or within a few bucks anyway. I wish Helidirect or ReadyHeli would stock as many Century parts as they do Align?

Hi

I use Pivotal hobbies.

You can get a small package (max 600mm in length up to 500g) delivered for $17 CAD

Everything in stock. Got my parts within 5 days airmail.

Top quality service

I used Pivotal as well for some of my Predator parts and had them sent to the U.S. Extremely pleasant and VERY helpful people there. I would recommend them in an instant...
