Default Aussie looking for a Hobby Shop in Los Angeles

Hi can anyone tell me of a good hobby shop in Los Angeles somewhere near Anaheim if possible. I will be traveling to the USA from Australia on holiday at the end of the year for a few months and driving around the country a bit .
I was after a hobby shop to get some kind of plane and one of those flycams to take some footage out in some of the places i will be traveling.
i will be in Anaheim for three days driving around so i can travel a little way to one.
So if anyone can recommend one that would be great
Thank you from the land of OZ

Try yahoo yellow pages and use this zip code: 92806

There is a Hobby People on Katella, its not necessarily the best store, but its the largest chain around here.

I recently spent 2 weeks in Orange Calif. Cars is the big ticket and about all you can find for planes are electrics as there is such a limited place to fly. There is a place called Ulitmate Hobbies on Katela in Anahiem that was the biggest of the bunch and had a huge selection of cars and electric park flyers. Have a great vacation in CA and Good Luck, Dave

I'd just look at a map and do a google search for hobby shops in the various LA area cities. I'm a few hours north of that area but I go there from time to time. The Hobby People in Fountain Valley is pretty nice. I've also been to a shop called Mod-L-Mania in Long Beach and bought a used Ultra-sport, the person who ran the place seemed like a pretty good guy.

Will you be sticking to the Los Angeles area or will you be going other places while in the US?
