every experience i/ve had with Archie Jr has been outstanding. he gave me the lowdown on every aspect of my first EDF, discount on servos and lipos and free exchange if it didnt fit (which he honored happily), and all that my first visit. the prices are equal to mail order and he really goes the extra mile to make sure everyone enjoys the hobby as long as
you dont abuse his good nature, it is a business after all.
my 5 yr exprience with this store leads me to believe that any negative reviews are probably the result of that.

I'm a frequent visitor to Archies now that I bought 2 heli's from them. They always make the time to explain the answers to your questions and in a way even a noob like myself can understand. The Prices are Fanfreakintastic and if it's not in stock they'll get it for you promptly.
Archie Jr is like a little social butterfly the way he genuinely wants to help and share his knowledge.
""JaguarJoe"" whom left the bad review is a complete tool and a Jack@ss, I was there when he picked up his Heli and he's lying about the situation entirely.

I was completely amazed at how much inventory this place has on hand, and at great prices. Even had parts for many legacy engines. Wasn't expecting that. After many visits now, it's obvious to me Archie's really strives to be the Remote Control Modeler's friend. Too, I've also been a skeptic of the simulators until my visit there. They have a quiet corner of their shop with two comfortable setups of the latest RC Flight Simulators for your evaluation, simple enjoyment or instruction. It's clear that their heart is in promotion of the RC hobby and not just on how maximize their bottom line. I recommend them as a regular visit for the local modeler and as a must see for visitors. They've always treated me AND my children with the highest respect and encouragement. Archies is a valuable asset to the St. Petersburg business and modeler communities: With the complexities of the model aviation hobby today, we're very thankful that you're here Archies.......
