Hobby shops near Onterio, CA

The missus and I will be flying into Ontario, CA and staying in Victorville in a couple of weeks. Any good hobby shops in that area?

SoaringUSA is not a hobby shop like you might think of a HS. But Bob has the best selection of top notch gliders. And yes Ken, he has quite a few DLGs along with other goodies. You may want to give them a call first though.

It's just a few miles west of the airport, off the I-10 in West Covina. The best place for quality planes. Bring a fat sack-o-cash, or a deck of credit cards. I doubt you will leave empty handed.

+1 regarding SUSA.

There's a bunch of hobby towns and hobby peoples around that you can google.
The only other worthwhile shop is Pegasus Hobbies in Montclair, CA. They have everything hobby related but they don't have much on soaring related stuff. Ask any of these shops about anything Dlg related and they'll give you the deer/headlight look.

SUSA is a definite must visit and meet Bob, Annie, Gary and Bailey! Cool crew!

Ken, I looked it up for you. It's a little farther than I thought. It's just under 20mi. Neither the Airport or SUSA are far off the I-10.

Are you looking for anything in particular?

Nope, just being "snoopy"

We are flying out to visit our son. He's in the big house up at Victorville Haven't seen him in 1 1/2 years. He went in at age 19 for 12 years. He's 4 years in now.

I'll check our Soaring USA

Thanks!!
