Here at Hillsboro Hobby Shop we carry many of the major brands of radio controlled Helicopters to satisfy your individual preferences and needs. All price ranges, skills and sizes are available. We have helicopters that are Ready-to-Fly (RTF), for those people that just want to fly, “Almost-Ready-to-Fly” (ARF), for those who want to build and customize and kits for those who want to build. All of our helicopters are considered “hobby grade”. This means that we carry parts or can get replacement parts to rebuild if necessary.
We stock and order replacement parts for most of the top name helicopters. We have several major distributors allowing us to find “out of stock” parts or special order parts and helicopters, and get them here quickly. We like special orders!
We carry several manufacturers’ accessories, supplies and equipment including: transmitters, receivers, batteries, chargers, power supplies, spin starters, glow starters, specialized tools motors and speed controls. Align, E-Flite, Blade and Thunder Tiger are a few of the manufactures that we stock for your helicopter building needs. We have totes and work stands designed specifically for hauling and working on helicopters.
For your electrical and hardware needs, we carry a wide variety of connectors, wiring harnesses, servos, ball links and more from suppliers such as DuBro, Sullivan, JR, Spectrum and Hitec. We also carry testing and monitoring equipment.
Helicopter flying can be a daunting and expensive endeavor for the beginner. Come in and try our flight simulators on the big flat screen TV. Save yourself some money and practice before you fly the real thing.
We have skilled staff to help with identifying problems and finding the correct parts for your particular helicopter. We do anything from tune ups to total rebuilds. Our friendly, on staff mechanics are skilled in discussing any issues and making recommendations before repairs are done.
All work is done at a low rate, tested and guaranteed from workmanship defects, and done in a timely manner.
For any questions or unusual problems, our manufacturers’ high priority is customer support, and is only a phone call away.
