About Us

In a Nutshell


We're a specialty hobby distributor with a mission of making modeling fun and easy. We have the right stuff to get you going, plus the know-how and experience to help you along the way. With product lines as diverse as remote control model helicopters, award-winning how-to television programming, plus innovative tools and accessories, a common thread holds sway . . . everything is geared toward enthusiasts intent on having fun.

Most products begin as an idea for an easier, or better, way to do something. Often taking form as a sketch on the back of a napkin, by the time we've made some prototypes and refined the idea we've brought our CAD/CAM software to bear because it's the only way we can get the quality we require. It's how a product is born.

Our southern heritage results in a pragmatic approach and thus, while we make neat stuff, nothing is fancy schmancy. Instead, the KISS principle guides us because it results in practical products, which are priced right. If you'd like to learn more, we invite you to poke amongst our product-line websites because collectively, they contain a wealth of information.
