Just been leafn through the Tower Hobbies catalog that just arrived..21 pages devoted to airplanes..followed by 5 pages of quads..8 pages of radios..guess how many pages of heli's...Zero.. the only heli related product displayed were some O.S. engines..like those are hot sellers these days!...Guess we are the undesirables of the hobby world..bugs me..I'm over it.

I do a great decending funnel!

Tower Catalog
To me, the flier really hasn't changed much, accept for adding the quads...
Not really sure what they would carry for helis?? They can only handle what sells, and in that respect we are too diversified..
Being both a heli and plane flier, I am glad to see Horizon keeping Tower alive..

That is it right there. When TT was in every heli pilot's fleet, they sold. Now there are soooo many choices that Align would be the only common heli.

I have an Align 450 and 600n. My others include a Century, Miniature Aircraft, Thunder Tiger, Mikado and SAB.

seems like with the downfall of the RC heli hobby that most hobby stores didn't just drop specific heli brands... they dropped all helis. they didn't even keep Align.

I don't blame them though... shouldnt stock what doesn't sell well. despite what a handful of vocal forum members say.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

Well..I thought they might at least have some Blade heli's in there..My local "sportsmans wherehouse" store has several helicopters including the Blade Msrs..thought it was interesting that Spectrum radios were in the first few pages and Futaba products were towards the back!

Spektrum At Front
Horizons main brand.
I was actually surprised to see Futaba in there at all since they are building their own center..
