Resource Links

A collection of useful links including places to buy parts, kits, and tools. Useful web sites, blogs and reference material are also included here. Let us know if you have a link that should be included. If its a link to your own site, state whether or not you will place a link back to our site. Its not a requirement to have a link back to uCHobby, but it will have bearing on how we evaluate your link request.

Links here are confirmed. We only link to sites that we actually check out and feel are relevant. If you see something wrong, its likely we have been duped. Please let us know ASAP. We can not endorse any of the items sold via these sites. We might have a review of specific products or services at the sight however. Look for a link to the review link in the list.

If you are a product provider and want uCHobby to do a review, contact us. We usually expect a sample item which we keep and use in a project. There are some advertising opportunities but those usually involve giving away some of your product to our visitors with some kind of contest. uCHobby is not accepting paid for advertising at this time. We do use Google AdSense to help supplement the cost of running the site however.

This is a new page and will expand as we have time to update.

    Can I shamelessly plug my own blog for this great list?
