well there are a few very good hobby around here that I have found. The first one have to mention is the Prop shop, if you are willing to hop on the freeway to detriot, I beleve it is on gratiot four blocks north of eight mile road.

They carry a lot of GWS stuff and specilize in props, they have just about any prop you could want. From them you can learn where the other good RC hoby shops in south easter Michigan are.

The Prop Shop is on Van Dyke in Warren. Quite a drive from Ann Arbor. Small and very crowded but probably the best for electric that I have seen on that side of the state. They have a web site that lists their full inventory.

Riders Hobby Shop is in Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti on Carpenter Rd. Not great but the best in town.

Hobby Town is on South State in Ann Arbor. Prices are high and selection not so good.

Sorry to say but mail order is still the best.

No Siree. The Prop Shop is on Van Dyke at 9 mile.

We even know that in Germany !

PS - We even know that the best food in Detroit is at the Traffic Jam on Cass and Canfield.
