Setup Online Shop
by: rcdude07

I admire your desire to start an r/c shop. But if you don't plan to put a major emphasis on an online store front, you won't survive. The business is very cut throat (thanks to places like Hobby King, Banggood, and Gear Best). Many of us long time modelers are watching traditional LHSes (local hobby shop) close up because business is not there. To get your best business, talk to the local AMA clubs that will be the bulk of your business and carry what they need/want the most. Don't cater to only the BNF/ARF crew, have supplies for builders (kit and scratch) as well.
