I bought a small drone from Bill about a month and a half ago. I wasn't able to do anything with it or figure out how to calibrate the 4 rotors. I took it back in and Bill spent about 30 to 45 minutes... explaining what he was doing as he tuned everything in. He would not take any money for helping me when he really didn't have to. That, to me, is great customer service and I left as a very satisfied customer. I will do my shopping at HOBBY CENTRAL. Thanks Bill See More

loved it at first, but then....lied to, disrespectful, and just plain rude customer service. sold my item out from under me, after three weeks of going back and fourth to see if it had arrived. never ...received a phone call or anything. I called to voice my concerns after leaving the store peacefully, and was repeatedly interrupted and disrespected. told me he "has to pay his bills" . the 600$ I was going to spend this morning was nothing I guess. I've found a hobby store that is local and very friendly and personable. I'd be happy to refer to anyone unhappy with the treatment at hobby central, (or hobby town usa, they're even worse.) you're frustrated, impatient, agro way of dealing with your customers is the reason you will loose customers, and the brick and mortar store. I am a very loyal consumer, and the treatment I received this morning is the reason you've lost not only my business but the many friends I fly with. See More

Had an unfortunate mishap with a shipment, but Bill went out of his way to make things right and to take care of his customer. Not everyone would have done this. Thank you Bill, wouldn't hesitate to buy again.

The hobby industry is going through some serious changes at the moment. The largest distributor and online rc retailer are struggling. If you like to race, put your hands on something before you buy it, hang out in a store and chat with others that share your passion - now is the time to support your local hobby shop. Take a look at this Facebook post by DE Racing (rc manufacturer)

DE Racing

Our goal at DE Racing has always been to create high quality US made products for the R/C community that make the hobby easier, more cost effective, and most im...portantly more fun. Whether its preventing premature wear, reducing maintenance time, keeping things organized and better set up, or just offering some bold colored wheels to stand out from the crowd, DE Racing has always done things our own way and at a fair price. We are now applying this same thought process to our business model by returning our flow of sales to a more tightly controlled format that allows us to better protect and engage with our customers.
It is understood that to succeed in business one needs to make a Profit. Profits allow distributors to spread product knowledge and supply stores with goods to sell, create a more intuitive website for online retailers, grow a well-stocked and knowledgeable local hobby shop, build and maintain great layouts at our tracks, and drive the next breakthrough innovation from a manufacturer. When in balance the greatest benefactor of profits is a thriving RC community that is rewarded with access to great help, a fun place to run their cars, and fairly priced products that vastly improve the whole experience in the hobby they love.
As racers ourselves we understand competition and wanting to win. However, Manufacturers, distributors, online retailers, local hobby shops, tracks, and our fellow R/C enthusiasts have all been negatively affected by short sighted practices that have driven too many members of the R/C supply chain to step outside their intended role and undercut the next to the detriment of all. Today we see manufactures using inflated MSRP’s to manipulate the effective discount rate paid by retailers while applying MAP pricing rates that they themselves sell direct to the public with every day. MSRP should be the true value of an item and MAP pricing is not the everyday price. They have also elbowed out retailers and tracks from potential sales by forming huge “race teams” that now comprise a large part of the overall racing community. Distributers have purchased or established manufacturing brands aimed at competing with the independent brands they are intended to help grow and have built their own online retail outlet stores that leverage huge margins to compete against the retailers they are to serve. Most often times at the absolute lowest prices to be found. Practices like these have left us all with local hobby shops and tracks either struggling to exist or closing their doors. In the end, the biggest loser of all being the entire R/C community.
We’ve had enough and have removed DE Racing products from access to companies that choose to continue with such practices. We have additionally applied a new MAP policy to protect our entire supply chain. We’re determined that with our customers help and the grace of God we will be able to better serve the R/C community with superior product support, competitive shipping rates, and a higher margin of profit. All this while maintaining the great value of our current MSRP prices.
If this rings true with you and you would like to know more about how you can be part of this exciting transformation to reclaim the fun in RC and give it a more sustainable future, please check into what we offer at or contact our sales team with your questions, requests, and orders at: We all became involved in the hobby to have fun. Together we can get back to doing just that.
