Banggood.com has a very good selection for both beginners and advanced hobbyist. They ship worldwide and often have good deals. One thing to note about Banggood is that that shipping can take a long time. They also do not have the best track record for customer service. Personally I have had no issues with Banggood.com so far. I have received all my orders and anytime I had an issues I received a response. The response wasn’t as fast as some companies but a response and resolution was met each time.
I will give banggood a 3 out of 5. I didnt give them a rating of 5 due to their shipping methods. Sometimes it takes a long time just to receive initial tracking. Also their customer support and service can be frustrating.
GearBest.com has a great selection of everything you need for the RC hobby. They have great customer service and provide good tracking for your shipments and they ship worldwide. I have had great experiences with Gearbest and would shop there again.
I rate them with a 4 out of 5. They did not receive a 5 due to the amount of time it takes to receive your order. This is really no fault of Gearbest. I can just be impatient when it comes to waiting on orders.
TowerHobbies.com is a great place for anyone interested in the RC hobby. They have a nice selection of everything you need to fly quadcopters, RC Planes and RC cars. I purchased my first pair of FPV goggles from them and their customer service is fantastic. They are located in the US and shipping is fast.
I give TowerHobbies.com a 5 out of 5. They received a 5 due to the fact that their customer service is awesome. Their staff has always been really helpful and responsive.
GetFPV.com is another fantastic US based company that sells a wide selection of quadcopters and their accessories. GetFPV has a great reputation for customer service and they offer same day shipping. They offer a constantly updated inventory so you can see the latest and greatest trends in quadcopters and FPV.
I give GetFPV.com a 5 out 5. They receive a 5 due to their great customer service, fantastic selection and same day shipping.
Amazon.com is by far my favorite place to buy quadcopters and their accessories. The biggest reason I shop on amazon is Amazon Prime. It allows you to receive 2 day shipping on all kinds of items. So no more waiting weeks for parts or worrying about them being held up at customs. You can find a large range of vendors who sell their products on amazon. I have not had any issues with any of the storefronts I have visitied and made purchases from.
I give Amazon.com a 5 out of 5. The reason they get a 5 out of 5 is due to their great reputations, fast shipping and good customer service.
Let me know what you think about the top 5. Thank you for stopping by.
