This is the BEST place to get started in RC aircraft in the WNC area, PERIOD!!! Since Carolina Arts & Crafts left, we've needed a decent hobby shop, particularly for RC. I just found out about Hobbytown around six months ago. Two of the guys at the RC counter are tops for customer service, particularly the RC younger RC plane guy, Bob. They are willing to help out plenty for new planes, parts and accessories, even on planes I didn't buy there! I've also seen them work with other novice flyers, and they ork hard to get you the RIGHT stuff, not the most expensive- they are about growing the hobby and making people happy, not just making sales. I can't help but reiterate, BEST RC aircraft customer service in the area. Do your RC spending at Hobbytown!
I have bought 4 trucks and a lot of parts for an old truck I already had. They were very helpful with me and all the questions I asked. They were not pushy about what I got or anything. They make a suggestion of what they would use or get and thats what any good shop should do. Seeing how they see all the crash after math and know what parts work better or last longer. So all I have to say is outstanding guys. Keep it up.
