Going to Houston next week and looking to go to a hobby shop. Not looking for anything in particular just looking for a good hobby shop in Houston. Any recommendations?

Theres a few. Larry's hobbies at 1960 and 45, W hobbies on 2920, M&m hobby center in Bellaire and one in sugarland on 59. Both Larry's and W hobbies are on the north side of town. Bellaire and sugarland are kinda southwest of downtown.

I don't always fly helis, but when I do I prefer to fly scale.

Larry's = TERRIBLE.

They do have parts for the popular helis, but dont expect any customer service in there. Go in with a list of part numbers and be a bother to the guy that has to get them for you. Been that way for as long as I can remember.

It depends who you talk to. Like most any shop, you have to find the heli guy. At Larry's, that is John. Go when he is there and you will be glad you went.

Hey
Ren will there be any Microbeast experts there Wednesday? Just got a Gaui X2 in the mail a few minutes ago and my head is hurting already just looking at the beast instruction manual. I've never set up a flybarless heli.

re
Don’t forget about Scobee Field. Bayou City flyers. I fly out there at least 3 times a month.

On the south side of town there is RC hobby shop out in Sugarland. They have basic align and Eflite kits and stock align parts. But they are mainly for RC airplanes and RC vehicles. I get basic supply’s there but nothing FBL related at all. most all of my parts are purchased online anyway. Nobody Caries Miniature Aircraft parts in Houston.

Better off getting Beast X help at the flight field.

Good luck

RC Hobby Shop in Sugarland on 59 south is a very nice shop. Also the Jetero RC club and field in the Humble area is excellent. I flew there two days as a guest 2 weeks ago and the club members were very friendly and fun to fly with.

Shops
Rc hobby shop in sugarland has lots to look at. Align Heli parts and lots of plane and car gear. Larrys has some cool vintage helis hanging.

Like ren said. Stop by Tom bass and fly.

See ya at the field.

Hey
Ren looks like I will be lucky to visit a hobby shop on this trip but no flying. If something changes I will look you up.

Thanks everyone

Headed to Larrys Hobbies. No hobby shop where I live so it's like a kid in a candy store.
