yup.. al's
Cindy is the person to deal with(she even flys heli's)... she is also the owner... al's daughter... who has passed away several years ago

I drive over an hour to go to that location.. best in chicago by far

Al's is the best no doubt.

There is also Venture in Wheeling, and
Strickly RC in Norridge. They are both decent shops, but if you were only to visit one, go to Al's.
