Default Back in the hobby!!!

Hi guys,

Like the title says, im back after 10+ years out of the hobby. Previously i was fly 30% gas (Yak, Edge, Extra etc). All of the vendors and websites that were in business seem to of vanished. Where are guys buying gas planes at now? Has the hobby taken a nose dive?

The hobby is approaching a stall, but should recover

What exactly are you looking for? Engines ( DA Desert Aircraft; servos Futaba, HiTec - Tower Hobbies; Spektrum -Horizon; etc)

PS....Welcome back!

I’m the same 10-15 years absence decided to give it another go. Purchased a Ranger 1220 can’t say how many hours I already have on her I did and love going up to a 3S 2200 from the suggested 1300. Plane just feels like it has more butt and I’m getting 10-15 minutes of flight time. Either way awesome to hear of someone else getting back into the hobby
