Great place to get your RC models, parts and other accessories. Jeremy always is fair and very knowledgeable when questions pop up...he is a great help with all my modeling needs.

Customer Testimonial — Dennis C.

Very organized and knowledgeable. Always willing to go above and beyond. You can tell the owner has a passion for the hobbies. Doesn't try to oversell but instead looks for the best option to suit your skill level.

Customer Testimonial — Phillip O.

The best in Birmingham , The owner is always willing to go out of his way to help , even if you are buying a $1 part or a new plane . I would say he has a great amount of knowledge of planes, boats and cars . I will only purchase from his store , and he only sells quality parts . Thanks for getting the Focke-Wulf 190A, it is sweet warbird!
