The Internet has a plethora of resources available on just about any subject, problem has been sorting thru the chaff to get to the wheat. Below is a list of the RC themed websites that I tend to go to for information that I’ve found to be helpful and I wanted to share it.
Some are user-to-user messaging forums and these are good places to discover new trends and maybe to find the problem you’re encountering already has a solution or maybe be the one who provides the solution. Some are more informational websites such as Wikis or equipment manufacturers. And some are seller websites which I find most useful for their reviews and pricing information.
I’ll try to sort them into their broader categories but some sites will fit in more than one, so the categories will be sort of a loose guide rather than an attempt to actually index the list.
As this list is culled from my personal bookmarks there will be an inevitable bias towards my tastes in RC aircraft and other equipment, but the list of sites is broad enough in scope that almost everyone should be able to find a site or two that they like.
This is only a start, I know there are sites that I SHOULD have listed that are missing, and sites that I’m just not even aware of in the first place. I also want to note that I’ve made multiple purchases from every seller I list below and have only listed ones I’ve had good experiences with.
So I invite everyone reading this to post a message below with the websites they find most useful.
I’ll try to add more myself as well!
