Best source for airframe parts?

Not sure this forums is the best spot for this question but I don't see a better one...


I've been doing some basic research so I can start working on a Drone once I complete my Thesis.  I'm expecting to go with a quadrocopter variant since I don't have much room for flying an airplane in my area so I think most of what I'll be needing is thin aluminum framework and similar.


Does anyone have suggestions as to the best low cost source for such parts?  Preferably online...

    We'll be releasing a complete ArduCopter quad kit in a month or two. It will be cheaper than making it your self...
