Default What Hobby Shop in LA/OC area?

Hi guys,

I'm flying into LAX this saturday and want to find a hobby shop that has expertise in both rc Cars and planes.

What I really want to do is call this hobby shop, tell them what I want, and have it ready for me to pick up Saturday morning.

Who should I use?

I would say Tony's Hobbies if you're looking to purchase plane and a car,

If car only then Speedtech Rc, San Gabriel

Plane Hobbypeople, Lawndale

and it depends on what kind of items you are looking for too.

It depends on what you are actually interested in. Hobby People might be able to help you out.

Only for low end on road. Decent for off road and they moved to a new, smaller shop earlier this year. Best place for high end on road is TQ Raceway in Chino. Speedtech RC no longer had a shop.

Ultimate Hobbies has really slid down hill in the last year or so, really sad to see these shops gone and out of business, internet has killed them.
