Inexpensive Online Robot Stores
« on: January 01, 2008, 02:00:01 PM »

Am so excited that I found that Wright Hobbies Robotics had cheap connectors and cables for my microcontroller. Also the LV-MaxSonar-EV1 was marked down from the normal price. Their crimper was a little overpriced though. Radio Shack has a crimper for half the price.

mouser.com is usually much cheaper than digikey.com, the search engine is better (although much slower), and they don't overcharge on shipping like digikey does.
