Wow we used to sell some of their stuff at the hobby store I used to work at. They had some nice stuff. Sorry to hear they are on hard times.

Yep, that's the final step now

I've always been puzzled at Robbe's strategy to be honest. They were mostly "rebranders", Futaba, Kyosho, in the past. In the information era I feel like they failed to differentiate themselves and release innovative products. Not so surprised that they went the same route as the other german behemoth (and competitor) Graupner.

Sad no matter what. Good luck to the employees.
