Like above mentioned....Kwong Wa Street in Mongkok (Kowloon). Within that street, you can find more the 20 RC and Toy Model related shop, and between then are Airsoft gun shops, Computer stores, and video games store..

Almost all kinda toy/games that you can find with that block. If you cannot find what you need there, you won't find it anywhere in this world, including Japan.

My advise, go to GOOGLE EARTH > Hong Kong> Kowloon> Mongkok> Kwong Wa Street and do the STREET VIEW...you can find alot of store with RC logo/sign up front, thats the street you can looking for.

You can also visit some of the local companies offices and they will sell to you direct. RC Mushroom is one. They were very friendly. Otherwise, Mongkok is loaded. The shops are very tiny and crowded with product, so be prepared to do a lot of searching, etc.

You may want to visit RCMart too. It's in some kind of office building (check their website for address) but you can order right there and get your order like in 10 minutes. Cheaper than some of the prices online and you save shipping too. Very friendly last year I was there.

One other note, if you want the taxi to take you to the Kwong Wa shops, just ask them to drop you off at the Kwong Wa Hospital.

Kwong Wah street is like "kid in a candy store" for RC guys like us. The shops are small but loaded. Mostly to the brim. You may not see what you are looking for on display, but that does not mean they do not have them. Just ask. Most of the shops there open at about 11am or so and closes at about 8pm.

The last time I was there on vacation, I visited Kwong Wah street everyday without fail. The fact that we stayed in YMCA Hotel because it was cheap and good(my big reason to wife, but you know the real reason ), Kwong Wah street was only 5 minutes walk away.

You will have a blast at Kwong Wah street.

BTW, Ladies street(night market) is a street away, parrallel to Kwong Wah St.

You will find that certain shops are cheaper than others, but they are so close together that you can just go from shop to shop to find the cheapest one.
