Default RC in Philippines?

I am on vacation in the Philippines, and is anyone flying near Manila? I have been here for 13days and i have 14 more to go. I am needing my Nitro fix. I can't even find a hobbyshop that sells RC. Anyone Help....

Thanks

Brian,
When I was there in 96 there was a hobby shop in one of the malls in Makati accross the park from the Shangrila.
That was 10 years ago and a lot changes.
Good Luck and say "Hi" to the GROs.

Thanks I think that was the shop i was at yesterday. It's all I have found so far. Lots of stuff, high prices. O.s. 46AX for about $200 USA money.

It was nice to see.

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, Stuff in the PI is expensive, especially when it is for the rich.
They have a hard time taxing people there so the easiest way is to tax it when it comes in the country.
Most people can barely aford what is produced there.
In 1996 I paid well over $400 for a 19" color TV.
Have fun and good luck,
