http://www.lego.com - Sell a great pneumatic kit to get you started on antweight pneumatics.

http://www.dycem.com - The non-slip mat from Dycem is the best stuff for antweight wheel grip/tread.

http://www.farnell.com - For NiMH batteries and electronics stuff.

http://rswww.com - RS components. Much the same as Farnell, but you have to pay for postage.

http://www.maplin.co.uk - Much like Farnell and RS comp they also sell NiMH batteries and electronics stuff.


This post has been throught about because of all the new people joining the forum and I think this is the right place to put it without swamping the antweight thread.

A very useful thread! Let's see if we can all keep it on-topic for a change :wink:

Dycem - you can get it from your local disability aids shop.

http://www.farnell.com - For NiMH batteries and electronics stuff. Minimum order ?10, post free, usually next day delivery. TIP use the search to find each component, then it tells you if it's in stock. Otherwise you have to go all thru the buying screens before you find it's all out of stock!

http://rswww.com - RS components. Much the same as Farnell, but you have to pay for postage.

http://www.sussex-model-centre.co.uk - Good range of R/C stuff

Not really parts, but a useful tools supplier:

http://www.squirestools.com

Squires Model & Craft Tools, Bognor Regis, W Sussex

They have a big catalogue full of all sorts of tools and useful bits & pieces.

Minimum order is &7.50, but postage is free. They also attend many model exhibitions and you can order stuff to collect at an exhibition.

This site looks great for antweight-sized electronics kits:

http://www.members.aol.com/actionkit

There's some nice ECS's, mixers and RC switches on there.

Today I received my first order from Action Kits and was about to post their address here - then I saw Andrew had beaten me to it!

Anyway, apart from kits, they also sell 40MHz Hitec Feather Rx's @ ?18 ea.
What's more, they have them in stock, which is more than can be said for SMC!
