I’ll admit it, I haven’t stepped foot into a brick and mortar hobby shop in…a while. To be honest, it’s been years since I’ve walked the aisles of my LHS, gazing at the boxes of awesome on the shelves. I’ve become more accustomed to buying my rigs and hop-ups from online stores. Whether it be Tower Hobbies, TheBarnFloor.com, AsiaTees, or others, I’ve scored some amazing deals through these retailers.
Since I don’t race and I don’t run my machines enough to break anything…generally, I haven’t had the need to visit a local shop. Truth be told, not sure I would, even if I did need new parts, given the prices that are attainable online.
Which do you prefer and if so, do you have a go-to location where you get your gear?
