My name is Charlie and I have been involved in R/C for the past 23 years. I started building kits with my dad when I was 5 years old in Orange County, California. I got my first trainer when I turned 12 and learned to fly an Eagle 2. After a few planes I made my way into racing 424 and later 428 pylon racers.
I started working my first job at the age of 15 for a hobby shop in south Florida. Later I took over selling all r/c related product online for this shop. I was the one selling Baja 5B's for the crazy price of like $800, they made a forum about me, lol.
I soon realized I could do this for myself and make money for my growing family so i quit the hobby shop and started my own online shop in 2006. Times were great until 2008-2009 and then I had to restructure my product line and have had great success with my current ever expanding line.
You can find me at many of the swap meets in Tennessee, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Georgia, North Carolina, and Alabama. My wife has come up with a name for my little get up, so I am going by TGK Connectors. The name comes from the first name of my little girls and their last name initial.
Look my tables up if you are at any of the many swap meets that go on in the fall and winter season, and I look forward to meeting you all and passing on some great savings on your hobby needs.
