Thanks, I'll check it out CJ.

You have to use the guest login and there is a place for it there BBB.

What about GrandRC, anybody have any experience with them? I can get a FBL 600 at a seemingly great price.

Best vendor IMHO is ReadyHeli period! Very fair prices but the service is well above standards. Usually kit prices are pretty close but for me I value service above all else. Being way out here in Hawaii that means everything. Give them a try, I can't think of any where else I can get a 550 to my door out of Florida in 3 days via USPS "FREE". I will say that dealers like Ron's, GrandRC, HD ad the like have very good service as well but RH stands out and earns my money.

readyheli is the worst place to buy a kit if you are interested in price. They used to make good deals but don't anymore. If you want cheap, shop elsewhere. They are still a top tier store but kit prices aren't the best.

*EDIT* For some reason I read this thread as cheapest place to buy. Readyheli is probaly the best place to buy for overall value, though not the cheapest.

+1 on performanceplus. Email the guy if you have any questions. He'll take care of ya. Good service.
Note the coupon code for checkout.
+ notice the free shipping.
For Align stuff, ReadyHeli,Amain,HeliPro and Helidirect have been good support for me on parts and customer service, but not always on kit prices.

Hmmm, not to me. I searched around and the lowest price I found for the T550 Combo was $800.00 plus frieght and they were out of stock. I won't mention the vendor. But considering I live in Hawaii and I estimated the shipping to be around $70.00 the kit from RH for $849.00 with free freight and to my door in 3 days is very fair.

ReadyHeli the Best
As the other colleagues said ReadyHeli is the best. Prices for the 550E FB or FBL are the lowers considering the free shipping and fast order processing.

They have "Free Shipping" on orders over $100 and also ship on Saturdays.

ReadyHeli
Their customer service is second to none! I could go into a long story, but, I'll spare you. RH is my first choice for anything heli, no doubt. One time, I even ordered a micro foamie plank from them. lol

I also do business with HeliDirect but consider this. On 5/9 I ordered 1 servo and a new canopy shipped USPS Priority. It arrived on 5/16, more than 1 week later. I ordered the T550 and a reciever from ReadyHeli on 5/11 and recieved it on 5/14 on a Saturday from Florida using the same shipping method! Hows that for free shipping to Hawaii! Thats the average time out of RH to me and that is priceless. Killer service is worth way more than cheap prices especially if you ever have an issue with the product. RH has some of the best customer support in this hobby I have ever seen. Does not mean that everyone else is lacking? Far from it. What it does mean (to me) is that the bar is pretty high and RH is tough ot beat. Ain't America great? Everyone's opinion is worth something. BTW, my 550 is the FBL version.

Using all stock components. I know theres alot of mixed results on the Align 3G but I can tell you that mine is rock azz solid! I think I set mine up pretty well and love the feel of it. I expect nothing less on the 550.
