I worked at Savon Hobbies for several years. During the mid 90's if I remember correctly. Savon was the mail-order division of Orange Blossom Hobbies, which was the retail division of a wholesaler named Panamerican International. The demise of all began when larger wholesalers like Great Planes and Horizon began to take larger chunks of Panamerican's business. There was also a bit of mis-management that eventually led to the owner, Mr. Luis Quick to put the companies up for sale. Unfortunately, no-one bought, and subsequently several months later, Savon closed, followed by Orange B and Panamerican. It was a real shame, as O.B. had been the largest hobby shop in Miami for over forty years and many good people lost their jobs.
I enjoyed working at Savon alot: we always had the latest goodies for 1/8 scale on-road, and it was fun talking to people over the phone (this was before the days of on-line shopping) about RC racing in general.
