HobbyTown was founded in 1980 in Lincoln Neb., incorporated in 1985, and began franchising in 1986. There are now 147 of these stores in the US, but we are lucky enough to have 5 of them, spaced out in the DFW area, Rockwall, Fort Worth, Lewisville, Dallas, and Plano. Also, of note the HobbyTownUSA located in Hurst Texas, sits next door to a Woodcraft Inc. store. (See this blogsite for a review of that location) Making this stop a bit of a day trip.HobbyTownUSA covers almost everything you’ll need for the hobby enthusiast. Of course, they have model cars, planes etc., but they also have RC cars/trucks and operational videos for them. As well as helicopters, planes, Drones and Remote-Control rock crawlers, they teach Drone classes.Educational toys are a big part of their stock along with, games, metal detecting, puzzles, rockets, slot cars and train sets. Don’t get me started on the train sets, any gauge, almost any brand. But the coolest aspect, is their videos of how to and history of, Legos, Action figures, Rocketry, Drones, Lionel and more.
You will also find a full array of magazines such as RotorDrone Magazine and MultiRotor Pilot.They even carry 3-D printers with all the accessories and consumables. Now let’s talk about RC simulators, and simulator accessories; I mean you must learn somehow unless you take the classes. You can get it all right here. Should you break something you can get all your maintenance stuff here as well, soldering tools, temp gun, tape and work mats.Oh, did I mention you can now search the inventory of your local store online. And they will order parts for you, which they can ship to your home, making Christmas shopping a breeze.I love this place. It makes shopping for someone else so easy since the people who work here are well trained and you don’t have to wait until a manager is available to get a question answered. You really need to check out HobbyTownUSA before the holidays are upon us.
