Good RC online store?

Happy new year, fellow members

After a few off-the-shelf cheap(ish) drones and cars crashed, then duly submitted for recycling, I am dipping toes into building my own. The main idea is that I would be able to repair what I assemble, thus spare in the long run compared to the write-offs.

I am searching for a good swiss-based online store that carries a good variety of parts, modules, brands; plenty of stores in EU but the fora are flooded with poor experiences either on store or post side; either way, happy to pay a premium for the comfort of timely deliveries.

What are the RC vehicle/drone stores you use and recommend? Maybe you know of a good French brick&mortar that is exceptionally good, worth the drive across the border from Geneva/Nyon?

Thanks for your tips and ideas.

Conrad (www.conrad.ch) is what I could think of. They had a good collection of RC parts.

Have you seen the RC section of Galaxus.ch? They list 12000 or so products. Conrad.ch also has an RC section.
