Far as I know, Horizon is primarily a distributor - they actually sell those Micro-T's to all the hobby shops - brick and mortar or online retailers. I say buy from A-Main (if I'm correct in thinking that they're a true hobby shop), put the money in the pocket of a grassroots hobby shop. Not knocking Horizon - I'm looking at several of their products in my office/hobby room as I type this - but purchasing directly from them does little to nothing to benefic shops at the local level. Yes, you're cutting out the middle man, but you won't be paying any less.

I have purchased from AMain Hobbies many times. They ship fast and I have used discount codes from them. I THINK, but can't remember for sure, that they are setup to only take paypal, so if you want to use a credit card, you have to do it thru paypal. Not a big deal, just a detail.

Straight from their site
"Payments Accepted
We currently accept payment through Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express Credit Cards, ATM Debit Cards, and Paypal."

I love Amainhobbies. I get my stuff extremely fast, have had one mess up with them and they took care of it promptly. I would recommend amain to anyone, but I havent dealt with horizon.

I just put my order through at Amain, the truck was cheaper there and I got 2 day shipping for 15 bucks.

Go with a-main. Here are some coupon codes for this month. There prices are pretty much always cheaper and they have fairly priced shipped. Other sites that SEEM cheaper usually have more expensive shipping.

$100.00 - $149.99 $5.00 CALPAUG5
$150.00 - $249.99 $12.50 CALPAUG12
$250 or more $25.00 CALPAUG25
