I honestly hesitated on going into this store b/c of the negative reviews!!!! I'm writing to say I'm glad I ignored the reviews and went in and made a new friend. Yes the shop is small but has anyone ever considered he is retired and does this as a passion for the hobby vs. making money! He truly went out of his way to educate me on repairing my sons RC car and while I was in the store he answered several calls and advised the customers that he was too small and they should go to larger stores unless they wanted to wait for him to order the parts. He was kind and a great personwith tons of knowledge that keeps that business open for the community---please support the local small business because you'll never find that service once he's gone!
Owner is a jerk went in for some rc car parts and told him I had a traxxas and he was so rude and called me brain washed! Sorry you sell cheap products that you can't buy parts for anywhere else but his store so if you can drive to Rockford I think it's worth it!
The only time ive been to the establishment was around the 4th of july and I was asking for fuses. I mentioned that wanted to string a series of smoke bombs together and the owner told me he was going to call the FBI for terrorism. Was so shocked that this guy thought I was a terrorist because I wanted fuses. Will never return.
The store is very small and specialized. They have individual parts for RC cars, rocket engines, and model cars. I went in looking for a bevel gear for a project I am working on at UWW and the gentleman helped me by showing me all sorts of gears and pointed me in some direction that I might have been interested in. Very pleased with the service and individualized attention according to my needs.
