My favorite parts supplier is HeliProz. I just repaired my Evo after a crash and ordered what seemed like half of a whole new kit and HeliProz had every part I needed in stock.

Rick's is another good source. Both are in the US, but you shouldn't have any problems with shipping up north.

Excellent prices and super fast shipping from Hong Kong. I ordered parts Tuesday night and they were at my door Friday afternoon.

It appears to be a little bit easier to order parts through Ricks as they are listed by part number...i seem to be unable to find parts based on Hirobo part number on HeliProz...but maybe it's just me.

When looking for Hirobo parts on the Heliproz website, leave out the dash in the part number. I recently ordered some X-Spec parts from there. Too bad the hardened mainshaft is so expensive but other than that, parts pricing was reasonable. Additionally, Heliproz has a black tail boom for the Freya that is actually a couple bucks less than the silver one. My heli looks a lot better with the black tail boom now.

I used to have the same problem finding specific parts on the HeliProz site. But once I figured out to search as Ryan described, I could find anything I needed.

I put the black GPH boom on my Evo as well ... looks much better. Especially when combined with carbon boom supports, carbon 3D fins and the Mavrikk low profile landing struts. Can't wait to fly it!

I second Rick's or Heliproz. I use Both. Rick's shipments usually arrive at my doorstep in 2 days. Heliproz in 2 to 3.

Wow...that's fast shipping from heliproz. They have a large inventory, but anytime I order, it takes at least a week for shipping. I thought it was because we were on opposite sides of the country, but Modefo's only takes 2-3 days and they are in CA. It's a shame modefo's doesn't carry nitro gear.
Never tried Ricks..but i have heard good things.

When I lived in Seattle, Heliproz shipments took two days to arrive. When I was in Minneapolis, it was about 4 days and now in Greensboro about 4-5 days. Definitely a good deal when I was living in Seattle.

Crush ... HeliProz primarily ships UPS and it takes approx. 5 days to the east coast. They ship most orders the day they arrive.

If you are getting shipments from the left coast in 2-3 days, they are most likely shipping USPS Priority Mail. It could also be UPS or FedEx 2 or 3 day delivery, but that would be rather expensive for standard shipping ... unless you specified that.

I prefer the tracking of UPS over guessing with USPS and don't usually mind the extra couple days.
