Being only new to the RC sport. And heavily influenced by FliteTest I've pretty much bought all my goodies from HobbyKing.
There is a shop in Newcastle NSW (near my hometown) that has a reasonable online store, yet to buy anything from them though. Will check out next time I'm in town.

This should be a sticky. I wonder if there is a way to compile this list and add ratings for each vendor like we do the articles. This would help new people in deciding which sources to consider.

I don't know if anyone is interested, but I just posted a whole bunch of vendors here: http://forum.flitetest.com/showthread.php?8455-Made-In-The-USA

These are places that make RC goods here in the USA.

This guy has every part for your taranis and pretty much every frsky RX you want.
Shipping is pretty great. I am only a couple hours north of them fyi, but 2 out of my last 3 orders got to my po box in less than 24hrs from ordering using usps.

Leans more towards gliders, but i have picked up a few emax motors for pretty cheap.

If you do any research on google for how to setup your taranis, you are going to find his really great setup videos.
