What?! That seems crazy to me! Where else is there to race, is Hobby Action the place to race after they open? What happened to all the tracks? I've been out of it for so long, I just found out NOVAK is no longer in business as well.

Yeah, its been a nice tough year for this hobby all across the country. Today at Hobbytown Tucson you can buy a first person view drone with an adapter to use your phone as the screen for $100. A HUNDRED BUCKS. In 1999 I relieved myself of most of my yard work money and paid $120 cash for a new Novak Cyclone ESC.

The world of RC is strange these days.

It is strange, I was reading on LiveRC about tracks closing. It seems like its happening everywhere.

Nothing in the greater Phx area now, but a short drive up to Prescott Valley there is a carpet off road track. Valley Hobbies is the name of the place.

Bad ownership killed the tracks. W3 wouldn't stock parts or kits and didn't know why they didn't sell anything.

Look at the yelp reviews of srs and phoenix indoor karting.
