New Source for Cheap Parts?

Ok. I just found a great website online and had to tell people about it. I have never ordered from there but I no doubt will soon. They have all kinds of cheap started kits and stuff I've been ordering from eBay for about the same prices.

They also have several Arduino Compatible micro controllers that I would look into. Some have built in servo connections and such. If I hadn't just ordered some stuff from elsewhere, I would probably be buying something from there.

Things that caught my eye:

  • Their shields (the motor controller shield)
  • Their micro controllers (YourDuinoRobo1- $17)
  • The pre-made drive platform
  • The cheap stepper motors
  • The various sensors
  • The starter kits.
  • The jumpers, resistors, etc.
Some of the starter kits actually looked pretty good. I didn't look too in depth. I'm sure some stuff is missing, but it might not be a bad place to start. The robot platform doesn't look to shabby either. I didn't check shipping on the heavier stuff, but some of you might want to look into it.

I realize this is a bit out of the blue, but I honestly am not affiliated with them in any way. I just stumbled across their site when looking for cheap stepper motors and then saw the micro controllers  Then I saw the shields. Then I starting going through practically every page.

That's all I have for today If anyone has bought stuff from there please comment. I would personally love to know what kind of service they provide. 

See you later,
