My 2 cents:
If you know where to get which hardware (boards, parts,
connectors, etc.) please
"write that down" on this page: http://paparazzi.enac.fr/wiki/Get_Hardware
Please, refrain from defacing your competitors entry.
Please, refrain from advertising shops and/or hardware from a
certain supplier on the mailinglist.
I personally find advertising on a mailinglist very annoying!
Warnings (including evidence and problem reports) on low quality
suppliers on the maillist are however welcome, *if you ask me*.

Price are really different, of course quality can be
different too. But as I know some dealer get cheap board from
china and sell from shop in hongkong or USA with more than
double price, you guys still can not identify that easy. At
least Chinese give another option.
One seller said he made the board by reflow soldering, not
SMT, that is the reason can reduce the cost, but as he said he
verified each board.

Thinking big picture some people just one care about
price. For them this is perfect. Really it is truly very
very expensive to machine assemble the whole thing 100%.
Some assembly in China is very good. They just always seem
to look for a way to substitute lower quality parts out
without telling you. I mean if you send BOM there and tell
them those are the parts likely you will not get those exact
parts used. Lower quality and sometimes completely faulty
chips are substituted without anyone asking or telling you.
You expect and pay for one thing but get another. Very
