Hi folks
I am headed to San Diego tomorrow for work. But after the work day is over I usually hunt down the local hobby shop(s) to see what I can spend money on.

Can anyone recommend a shop to visit.

Thanks in advance!!

Well I made it to Discount Hobbies and it was a very nice stop. Walking in the door I thought I was at Graves Hobby in Orlando. Planes and Helis everywhere above your head.
I got to meet John, the owner.
Very nice guy! The staff was very friendly and professional. Since in my work I deal with customer service that is something I look for and appreciate when I'm a customer.
I did get to spend some money and will try to stop by again before I leave.
Thanks again for the suggestion.

Discount Hobby Warehouse is a very nice hobby store for sure. John is a great guy, I've known him for years. The Heli Scene used to be huge in San Diego, and DHW carried a ton of kits, parts, engines, etc...since drones....not so much anymore. No fault of the store, just trying to carry what actually sells.

Good to hear
John weaver's still kickin and running his store; I bought my second heli and my ole 8103 from him back in '94!; back then he was in a bigger location with an offroad track in the back..they used to get a big turnout for nightime racing. Good times back then trying to find fields in SD to fly at!

I do a great decending funnel!
