I don't agree at all that the airplane portion of the hobby has lost sales due to foamies and quads. The hobby in general has declined, and younger people have shifted toward those easier to get in the air products. If anything, I'd say those products have saved the hobby (ARFs also) due to so many hobbyists taking an interest but not having workshop skills, tools, or space for builds.
The concept is sound though. Most successful companies see the importance of building up the community that uses their products. Horizon isn't really spending much money on this, and everyone benefits with the connections made.
