Hobby shop in Dallas TX?

I'll be visiting Dallas in a few weeks, and was wondering if there are any hobby shops or flying fields worth visiting?

Thanks.

Hobby shop wise and e-wise, you ought to visit EAM in Lewisville, TX, a short drive up 1-35E from the western side of Dallas. His store hours are a bit odd, so check the website before you go.

Mike's Hobby shop in Carrolton (also off I-35E, on the way to Lewisville) is worth a visit...very large and tons of stuff, with a decent amount of E-stuff.

Those are the ideal hobby stores to visit while in the area.

If you are in town on June 9th, then you can come by my house. We have a building session on the second saturday of every month. We usually get a half dozen people or so and we have a fun night eating pizza and talking about airplanes.

One stop shopping and the best staff, Mike(the owner) Gary, Bill. They really know their stuff. Mikes Hobby Shop,,,,,I've been a faithfull customer with 'em for about a year now. Good luck. Look them up for the directions, www.mikeshobbyshop.com

As for flying fields, go Hwy 80 West "outside loop 635" past Beltline road, take next exit then turn around at the light. Flying field will be on your right. While on 80 look left you can see it from the highway, they fly quarter scale, etc, you'll see some awesome aerobatics. I haven't seen them fly electric there, but if you have a few hours on the weekend to spend, it's well worth the drive. Email me if you have any questions. Cruz
