Heli Wholesaler/MAUSA/Heli Proz
First off, I wanna say since my short dealings with both Heli Wholesaler, MA, and heli proz, I have had nothing but top notch service. But Im a little confused here.

Ok, Heli Wholesaler is a Wholesaler, not a retailer, but they are in the same building as Heliproz and MA. Just tell me, what is going on here? And where does Ron's Heli Proz come into play here?

Flyco owns all of the above.

Heliwholesaler distributes to your LHS and other retailers.

Heli Pro'z and Heli Proz south are two retailers that are directly owned by Flyco and distribute their products.

MA is a manufacturer of helicopters that is also owned by Flyco.

Clear as mud?

A fellow named Chris Nelson. Seems he has done the RC heli world in the US a great favor.

Ron's Heliproz South was originally called Rick's RC Helicopters. Ron Lund worked for the original owner, Rick, in the exotic wood business. Rick owned an exotic wood/lumber business and flew helicopters as a hobby. Rick didn't like crashing and ordering parts so he would stock up in great volumes. Soon, local guys came to him for parts as they didn't want to wait for snail mail parts either. His r/c helicopter business was a side business was born. When Rick passed away Ron continued to work for Rick's widow for another ten years or so. As she aged she finally decided to sell the business and close the doors. The situation was not warm and fuzzy. Ron's crew showed up to work one day and the locks were changed!! Ron worked relentlessly to find a way to keep the doors open and parts flowing. There was an agreement made between the owner of Heliproz (major competitor) and all those involved with Ron Lund to buy out Rick's widow. The name was changed to Ron's Heliproz South. The best r/c heli shop in the USA was saved, and the best r/c heli retail team continues to serve.

Flyco netted a winner, and Ron's team found help when needed most.

Nothing but the best from Ron's plus all of his guys fly and maintain so they know what you need to keep going. But it was better in the old days when your wife got the credit card statement and it had "Rick's Fine Lumber" on the receipt so she didn't know you were getting helis and parts.Team Synergy/Rail, Team Scorpion, YS Engines, VelTye
