Default Devistation in Japan

Just curious on what manufacturers are there and if this will affect the hobby for years to come.

Possibly. Mugen, Kyosho, OS and many others are in Japan. No idea if any of them received any damage or lost any people.

To be very honest, if I substained that kind of damage that they have, I don't know what I would do. All that most can do is dig a big hole and bury the majority of it. I guess it could be a recyclers dream.
Either way, it's very sad for the loss of life and the damage. The Bible is fullfilling itself each and every day. This world is taken on alot of damage and not enough money to rebuild it.

Im not all that concerned with the RC supply chain. I'm more concerned with the 10,000 people that died and all the pain, suffering, and destruction that these people have to deal with. May God hear our prayers

What are you talking about? Have Robert Kraft and Jerry Jones of the NFL cut Japan a check to cover the damages and downtime.

i do get your point it was just a part of japan not the whole japan i believe so staying there whould make sense.

i think thats just the offices not where they make the models at .
