just to add, i've removed the chaff from the search results (these are results that stores return which don't really match what was being searched for) which hopefully makes scanning through stuff quicker.

Also added everyone's favourite cheap model store, Hobby King

Hi,

I have just found this and it's so very useful.

One improvement if your doing some dev might be able to do more specific searches. If I search for p51 or FMS p51 I get really relevant returns.

If I search of swann morton no.2. I get everything with a 2 in it

Not sure how this could be fixed but it would be good if you could use "swann morten" e.g. include both words together etc.

Thanks

Jon

Hi Jon,

thanks for the feedback - i will see what I can do, I am at the mercy of the retailer's own search mechanisms unfortunately, I have to in many cases filter and manipulate the results to make something half readable and relevant.

Your point about returning results with a single digit match is a good one and I will address that.

It was a bit tongue in cheek Darren.

I have over 40 orders with them, and as I live near the depot next day delivery is a given, thanks to my local Parcel Force driver.

I hadn't seen this before, I just tried it and searched for 57mm spinner, I must say the results are impressively specific. Bookmarked at the top of my suppliers list.

Thanks,

Andy.

Nice tool. Please add T9Hobbysport, they have loads of FrSky stuff which I suspect many people will search for.

Hi Darren, is there a problem with the feed to www.rcferret.co.uk from Nexus Modelling Supplies?
I noticed they were missing from most of my search results (not all).

As a test, I searched for a servo 'QZ601', knowing Nexus have 2 in stock @ £37.99 each but didn't get Nexus in my results (all stores, no exclusions).
Only Pegasus, TJD & Slough RC returned matches in test.

Thanks for your support.

Hi Allan,

Good spot, I was using their non HTTPs site which returned nothing. It is now fixed and working.

Thanks again

Darren
