Got an Email yesterday with a 50% off at Experience RC... damn... hobby shops just keep closing left and right.

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

Won't even order from them at 50% off, probably take my money and run. Shopped with them twice, both times I had problems with them from their website listing something as in stock when it wasn't and dismal phone communication trying to get it resolved. Bye bye.

Hobby Store
We have a Hobbytown in my city and it honestly is the most horrible thing! They never have anything that I need even if the item I an purchasing for is carried in their store. We have a sweet Hobby store a little over an hour away and they have everything from ground to every aspect of aviation. They have people for each location with in the shop. The carry everything for entry level RC cars to $30,000 jets and everything in between!

we aint got crap worth visiting... not Austin Texas, Not Houston (not anymore since Larry's closed), Not Waco, Not San Antonio... I think there is one tiny shop somewhere abound Dallas... Nothing here in Killeen... but if you wana see boobies or need rims for your car... oh yeah they got that all over the place ready to steal soldiers money.

Well.... I do like boobies.

However, Larry's was a great shop...

Randy's on 249 off of the Sam Houston Parkway is a pretty good hobby store in the Houston area.

Hobby Center? nah hes still there... but Planks? just 2 - 3 cheap park flyer foamys.... his thing is common 1/10 scale RC car parts (never see any Kits there). but heli stuff? just the tiny blade crap. he opens late on saturday... like 1400... but closes by 1800 and closed on Sundays (WTF) and generally opens late like around 1000 - 1100 and closes by 1800 on weekdays... How he manages to stay open is a mystery. my guess is that he makes just enough to pay the rent.

Randys? been there... he bought alot of Larrys Hobby shops stock back when they went under. doesnt carry any new Heli stuff what so ever last time I was there... you can buy other peoples used models.

but Samano’s Hobbies out in League City looks promising, never hear of it... the website looks like it was put together by a 12 year old though. Id have to make a weekend trip just to visit... 4 hour drive for me one way.

RC boobies. Now that is a great concept. Would love to see some DD's on 12s. Or better yet on Nitro.
