Yes, very sad that Hobbico (parent company) had to file for bankruptcy. Horizon Hobby has purchased Hobbico's RC division so many of the brands should continue on under Horizon Hobby now.

I also used to peruse the Tower Hobbies catalogs hours on end. I must have been 17 or 18 when I started receiving Tower Hobbies catalogs in the mail. Raced off road for 5 years or so back then, spent every free moment on the hobby. Good times.

Will be having a son soon so I need to get my hobbies in order
I was into telescopes a few years back, then sold the works for camera gear. Astronomy equipment costs are astronomical, lol. Mind you so is photography. Damn, any hobby I like is soooo expensive. Wait, where am I?...in High-End audio!
