Default HobbyKing Catalog...first ever

Went to the mailbox this afternoon and found the first ever HobbyKing color catalog...34 pages. Thought it was a Tower Hobbies or Hobby Lobby catalog but was pleasantly surprised. Nice pictures in color...seems HobbyKing has made a large leap in advertising.

Regards,

Hankg

It's going to be interesting to see how people like Tower Hobbies et. al. cope with LiPo pricing when they're catalogs are sitting on the kitchen table next to this one.

I think they're on to something...they will dominate the market by shear size...King size. :-)

Yep -- I got mine on Jan 29 as well.

Didn't really see anything I need/want, that I didn't already purchase (or are waiting for stock to increase so I can order it).

My wife and I both thought the "polybag" was made of a very strange plastic -- but then again, it's from Hong Kong...

What's the big deal? They killed a bunch of trees just to give us what is easier to read online. I had a tough time reading all that fine print and figuring out the pricing (china or US price/shipping). It went in the recycle bin within 60 seconds. I do buy a lot from them though.

I'll probably 86 mine too. Those bums quit giving me my affiliate points plus I found a place in the good ole US that's just as cheap.
