I grew up in Bensenville, just north of Al's Hobby Shop. As a kid I would ride my bike there to spend hours looking at the RC cars, boats, rockets, magazines and all sorts of used stuff in the basement. I moved "Up Nort" to Wisconsin after college so I don't frequent the area too often.

I couldn't afford heli's at the time....heck - I can barely afford them now, as an adult! haha

It's been probably a decade or more since I've been there.

Great memories!

Last I heard Al's heli section was pretty dry and the store in general was on the edge of closing up. Their prices were always full retail and from what I heard refused to have an online store. Why would anyone drive and pay full retail when they can stay home and order it cheaper? Hobby shops now are only fun for window shopping.

There is still Quite a few Heli fliers in Chicago, some good 3d and a few scale guys (Im the latter).
Im surprised nobody has mentioned strictly rc in norridge! they sell helis and parts, The owner even flys helicopters.
