Good E-flight shops in S.F./Oakland?


Leaving the desert for a week. Can anyone recommend some decent shops in the SF Bay area for me to check out?
Thanks

Sheldons Hobbies,

N. San Jose, on Oakland Rd, near 880 and Montague expressway. Open 7 days a week.

San Antonio Hobbies. El Camino and San Antonio,
Open Mon - Sat, closed Sunday.

Both can give directions to E flight flying sites.

East Bay hobby shop


I was in the hobby store (name unknown) in the El Cerrito Plaza shopping center last week, El Cerrito being a few exits north of Oakland on I-80, next exits north of Berkeley. Seemed to be a full-line hobby store, had some e-power stuff. Gave me detailed instructions on how to get to the nearest r/c field, so the proprietor at least seemed to be a modeler. (I was visiting from Connecticut, so my Califormia navigation is pretty rudimentary).

Thanks for the suggestions. Actually been to that store (I think it's really in Albany) where I bought my first and second planes. Unfortunately had no time.

I think the name of the shop is Kit and Caboodle.

All true. My memory is jogged. The shop is named 'Kit and Kaboodle', and it is in Albany, located in the (upon reflection, misnamed) El Cerrito Plaza.
