Hands down the worst RC related news (for me personally) that I've ever heard. I'd call but I'm too damn sad to do that-I'll be by in the next few days.

I am truly sorry to hear this news as Billy has always supported anything he could when it came to the RC Community. From offering discount cards to sponsoring rounds of racing for KBRL. You will truly be missed. I will be in the shop in a couple of days. Good Luck Billy and Neal!

This just shows you how important it is to support your local hobby shop is this is the second Hobby Shop to close within about 3 weeks in the Phoenix Market. Be thankful for what we have and support those that support you.

Sad to hear another shop closing. I never personally purchased anything from Liberty but I'm assuming it's a perfect example of why you should support your local shops. Quit buying off eBay and out of people's garages. Best of luck!

Told you this when I saw you but again, I'm really sorry to hear this news Billy.

I bought my first SC10 kit from your shop, my T4 and my Dad's first SC10. We'll never forget Liberty Hobbies and we both wish you MASSIVE success on whatever comes next.

All our best to you and your Dad.

I live nowhere near your shop but I'd be glad to contribute whatever I can towards your close-out sale.

Do you carry any 1/8th scale nitro (specifically Associated) off road stuff? I'll make the trip over tomorrow if so.

Sorry to hear about the closing and I hope bigger and better things are on the horizon for you guys..

So sorry to hear you are closing. I live in San Tan Valley and RC hobbies is closed too! Terrible to see these small shops closing. Hobby shops used to be everywhere. I'll try and make the drive out there. Good luck in the future.
