    Sorry, but I don’t think I could assemble a full project of any respectable form by just using parts from Shady-o-rack. Some things like the parallax sensors are cool, but the severely limited and CRAZILY priced components just make the shack less useful than specialty sites, and local surplus / parts shops (don’t forget inconsistent and often lacking information on the packaging). Here in Winter Park, FL, the 5 extra minutes to get to Skycraft Surplus is well worth the savings and much better selection from a store that receives funding by reselling miscellaneous items for a profit, as compared to a huge corporation that has gone from parts supplier to phone sales.
