Surfing Online RC Hobby Stores is one of my favorite past times, besides flying of course!
Even if you're not planning to buying anything, it's always a blast just surfing around seeing whats out there. Im sure youll find a plane or gadget that you just cant live without. I have a few on my growing list!
Lets just say I've spent a few bucks on this hobby over the years and I know where to get the best bang for my buck. Here are my favorite places to shops.
Red Rocket Hobby Shop is a privately owned hobby shop located in Klamath Falls, OR.
What really sets this online hobby store apart from the rest is the personal one on one customer service I get from the owner anytime I have any questions. Matt is a friendly character that sort of gives that personal small town hobby shop experience. He appreciates your business if you know what I mean ...
Red Rocket's price matching policy guarantees the lowest price on any product. Although Red Rocket is a relatively small outfit, the fact that they ship from five different locations within the US means that you never have to wait more than a few days for that new airplane to show up on your front door step!
If you want to keep up with the latest and greatest airplanes and helicopters on the market, look no further than slide show on Red Rocket's home page. Many times youll find the most popular Horizon Hobby products on display and available for pre-order months before they're even released.
Hobby People is another one of my favorite online RC hobby shops with several physical stores located on the east coast. Since I live in Kentucky I've never had the opportunity to visit any of their brick and mortar stores, but I do order quite a bit from their website.
In addition to a decent variety of electric powered aircraft they have a huge selection of glow powered airplanes, engines, and accessories.
Hobby People has tons of building equipment and supplies as well. So if you're looking to build your own airplane, theyll have everything youll possible need.
If you check their home page often, you'll find that they're always running some sort of deal or promotion that can save you a few bucks.
Maybe not exactly an online RC hobby store, I've actually saved a good amount of money purchasing RC related equipment on Ebay. At least I like to think of it as saving money, my wife doesn't necessarily think along those lines...
Momma needs some quick cash and puts Bubba's toys online for a little of nothing...Ca-Ching!
Don't feel guilty for taking advantage of the situation, after all it's not YOUR fault, ha!
