I bought a 100$ copter from them that failed out of the box. I took it in for replacement and they said they don't take anything back that has been opened. Even though when I bought it they said just come in if you have problems. I was willing to compromise and take the 60$ copter and let them keep the 40$ difference. They refused this as well! Do not buy from this crappy store. Their markup is 40% above the most expensive online prices. Which wouldn't be bad if they were willing to support their products. But they don't. I was told to get out. Lol

Hate to hear that. I bought a copter and need to get a minor repair. Seemed like a nice store.

Awesome store with knowledgable staff. Went in there wanting what I wanted & they gave me pros & cons. Ended up buying the car I wanted plus a truck more suited for local area!

This is a great store, and the staff was very friendly, and very knowledgeable of their products. I bought two helicopters from them, and they are awesome, and fly good too! Soon, I will be buying an rc nitro car or truck from them. Can't wait!:-)

I bought a 100 dollar (well, 96 and change to be fair) tank at this place. After reviewing the product online I found it would not work on grass and was of poor quality. It is a Christmas gift for my child. I tried to return it the same day, in the box, unopened and with a receipt and was told they have a no return policy. don't waste your time with this place they will rob you!

Went to drive rental RC cars. The staff is very kind and was helpful. Price was a bit steep, but we had a great time. The customers racing were so kind and we helped each other. Probably will go back in the future.

Purchased a $300 rc plane on 2/8/15 as a valentines gift upon sale, I told the owner that the recipient wanted gas, he talked me into electric and said it would be fine if I returned and exchanged it or got a refund. I returned on 2/20/15 and he told me he wasn't going to allow me to exchange or refund the product Cause it's a known fact that no hobby store has a return policy. I asked him where is it posted in his store and he said it's not. I asked for a written receipt of what was purchased and he said my credit card receipt is my receipt. The credit card receipt doesn't help me if I want to resell whatever it is that he sold me. During this conversation he acknowledged the contents of the package were undisturbed and appeared unopened. He accused me of being a liar and he called me crazy when I became angry that he told my boyfriend that It was known about his return policy. He is very disrespectful, arrogant and dishonest. I WOULD SPEND THE EXTRA $5 AND GO TO ANOTHER HOBBY SHOP IN MOBILE OR GULFPORT. show less
