You may be fascinated with the idea of flying RC planes but you wonder where you can get a good model to fit your requirements. But getting these planes is not a problem anymore. There was a time when in traditional shopping products were available only at brick and mortar shops. Today, there are numerous online hobby shops where one can easily order and buy any products including RC model planes.
You may also be worried about losing your money. The level of technology is changing and much has been done to prevent such kind of problems. Online shops use drop shipping facilities, a supply chain management where a retailer sells goods to customers without having to stock them. The retailer does so by giving order details to the wholesalers and the wholesalers ship the goods directly to the customer.
And so the difference between wholesaler price and the retailer price is what the retailer gets as his profit. The shops may also have direct sales where you order and the company ships it to you. There are safe paying options available like Paypal, which is fool proof, and you can recover your money in case of failure to deliver.
There are many online shops on the web, but they are based in many countries. There are of course some of these shops which run the international market and if you can easily locate the ones based in your country, then try them, they are equally reliable. There are shops that are based in various countries and have websites where they sell their products.
For example, if you are in Canada and US, you can contact Brookhurst Hobbies which is a US importer and distributor for items like RC planes. For those in France, Quirao Pechbonnieu offers good deals in electronic items, especially gift items. If you are in Germany, Andromeda is an online shop that will give you good deals especially if you are buying kits. In India also you will find shops and agencies which distribute RC model planes. These are just examples, but there are thousands of online shops worldwide which will give you good deals and services.
But before placing the order, you should do two important things. First you should know what kind of model you want to buy. For the novice, Park flyer and trainers are ideal. Then there are glow plug engines and sailplane aircraft for those who have advanced more. For the expert pilots, there are jets, pylon racers, autogyros, helicopters, 3D aircraft, and other top notch planes. Secondly, you should read the previews available on the model you intend to buy to know and compare prices.
