Default Tank Sealant

Where are people buying their tank sealant? Is there a better source than Van's? Van's shipping costs are quite high.

Thanks,

Tom

Default tank sealant

Got some from Vans the other day for the elevators, but did see it on the Aircraft Spruce website the other day

I personally found Van's a better price for the amount of sealant you get. I think if you get that same amount of a comparable sealant elsewhere, shipping may be less, but the sealant was way more expensive.

Default Vans was cheaper

the last time I checked (which was a few months ago, about October 2011.)

I checked the usual places and for a quart, Vans was very, very hard to beat.

But if you only want a small amount, the 3.5 oz deal from Spruce might suit you -

Default ProSeal vs FLameMaster

Is there any advantage to one over the other?
