Xenon Project Not rated yetWe are a few hobbyists whose love for the hobby inspired us to try and give back to it via an RC hobby shop. RC Helicopter Sound System from MrRCSound Nov 10, 15 11:19 AMRC Helicopter sound of 5 different copters. The Blade 350 QX3 Maybe The Ideal Beginner Camera Drone Aug 28, 15 11:46 AMThe Blade 350 QX3 is available in three versions, from basic quadcopter to a camera drone with all the bells and whistles. But the hobby shops must go where the market goes, says Bruce Throne, owner of Walt’s Hobby in Syracuse, New York. Back in my day, which means the deep Reagan era, boxes illustrated with beautiful pictures of famous fighting or racing vehicles contained nothing but sticks or bags of plastic parts.
Buying online for me is out of the question since I dont own a credit card nor a Paypal account.
As the years pass, the stores evolve and change, but in one form or another, we ALL need access to a good hobby store. Competition and market evolvement has resulted (unfortunately) in the demise of many.The large discount mail order companies, can offer kits, radios ,engines etc, at a price that the local stores cannot match.
If the item I want is not in stock, then it can be ordered and be there in 3 days.For the car enthusiast, there is a large race track behind the store that looks super and is complete with an elevated driver stand.


But a hobby shop is mainly about small vehicles, and ads for the shops of my youth once filled a page of the Detroit phone book. Throne says plastic kits have become increasingly expensive and, for the iPhone generation, passé.
If you wanted to fly, race, or jump off dirt ramps in the backyard, you bought the box and some odds and ends and constructed the vehicle over many hours in the basement.
Then along came the on-line web site stores, that offer further competition to the local RC store!So the local shops that have survived, must be offering excellent prices and a large selection, along with the other essential ingredient-technical advice and customer support. It took us only 20 minutes to peruse the tables crammed with used radio-control buggies, boats, and airplanes, and I started to despair that I wasn’t going to find what I had come for when, at last, I spotted it.
My favorite was a cluttered storehouse of treasure on Woodward Avenue called Tiny Tim’s.
Most of the shops in the old Yellow Pages are history, and the few survivors sell mostly toys. If kids don’t want to build models, what makes us think they’ll want to build real cars and ships and airliners as adults? Most of the real stores offer mail-order and on-line shopping abilities-I guess this is a part of their secrets of success!


The big old box, somewhat faded and shelf-worn, had nothing in it but some blueprints and a lot of sticks and sheets of balsa and plywood.
Anybody passing by in the early 1980s would have likely seen my mom sitting outside in an idling ’76 Buick Estate Wagon, waiting. After liquidating my allowance renting a lane on one of the huge slot-car tracks, I could happily disappear down the narrow aisles for hours, scrutinizing each multicolored box in the stacks that rose nearly to the ceiling, where airplanes and rockets swung on string. Through patience and craftsmanship, plus gallons of stinky cyanoacrylate superglue, the box’s contents can become a working, flying copy of a Chance Vought F4U Corsair. They pop out of the box ready to be switched on and played with by a society accustomed to electronic devices that deliver instant gratification.
Initially the real stores will be limited, geographically, to Central Florida and Southern Ontario. At $120, the price was cheap for what promised to be hundreds of hours of industrious diversion.
