It is a great store. Made the 2 hour drive from Cedar Rapids several times. I still sometime regret not buying that C-130 that was hanging from the ceiling... wonder if it is still there.

Nice hobby shop. But I just checked RcG listed flying sites and hobby shops in Orange County and about 90% don’t exist. Hobby People? Long gone!

Yeah the old ones stay there for legacy and historical info. There's usually a note saying the shop or place is closed.

From Iowa, I got my firs RC at this shop


I grew up in Des Moines, and I have visited this place many times. I got my first RS buggy there and anytime I go back there from my current home in Chicagoland I always spend money on parts and new planes they are very friendly and helpful if you can not find something.
