Success! Thanks for posting your review of HobbyTown USA. You’ve done the world some good today.

Avoid the owners, retain your happiness!!

I have purchased many items from Hobby Frown over the years since they are conveniently located from my business. My experience with the customer service most notably through the owners has been quite irritating, most often I have left their store amused wondering why a business owner(s) would possess such arrogance and disregard for the customer that supports them. I went in today with the intention of purchasing a ... view more

A service, and parts availiblity

i moved to town about 2 years ago, and when i looked for the local hobby shop i found hobbtown usa. \r \r The staff is great! I go there atleast once a week, not a big spender but they treat me with respect, and more than willing to answer the dumbest questions i have. \r \r i think the ratings of the store is haggled, from the past. people wanting to ""upgrade"" after breaking or even using the r/c view more

Hi there fellow reviewers, here is my personal experience with HOBBY TOWN in San Marcos CA. At first when i came in, i thought ""wow, they got alot of really nice stuff in here!"" Then i talk to the employees. ""WOW, these guys are the biggest and most bitter jerks i've spoken to."" They act like if you arent ""good enough"" and just throw out information rather than to actually help you. They fed my girlfrien... view more

Great Experience

I was looking for a good entry level RC helicopter (micro or mini) and saw the poor reviews posted here. I looked online and found Hobbytown offered the best price and was local so I could pick it up. My experience was great. The owner showed me various models, demonstrated them all, and helped me choose the best one (Blade MSR). I was told about common parts and he set up my heli out of the box and tested and tr... view more

My grandfather who has althimers went in to get some help with a helicopter he just bought, instead of showing him the problem the owner (Bill) proceded to fix it with out his knowlege then fly the helicopter around the shop as if he was trying to show off for some other customers with my grandfathers helicopter. the whole incident really angerd my grandfather so he just asked fo... view more

Horrible Customer Service

Let me start by saying I had been a customer of this business for years. I purchased a RC Car for my son over Christmas. In a nutshell when I went to return the item two hours later, I was told they would not take it back. The owners wife rolled her eyes at me, was extremely rude, and made it seem as though this was a personal assault against her, not a business transaction. After several conversations I was finally ... view more

Only if you are desparate

Prices same or higher than other LHS. Old fashioned salesmanship not to be mistaken for product knowledge.\r \r I was greeted by Bill (owner) who mentioned his friend (Hitech Sales) had just provided him RTF Minimag before going through distributors, etc. (savings, availability, etrc.). He recommended the Minimag over other planes.\r \r Assembly was easy, even though the documentation was poor and the video had... view more
