About Us

A Main Hobbies was founded in 2004 with four unwavering principles that have allowed the company to flourish from its humble beginnings in a two car garage, to being a respected industry leader.  A Main Hobbies has gained its quality reputation and success by maintaining a broad and accurate selection of inventory, delivering “old fashioned” customer service, providing expedited shipping services at reasonable rates, and ultimately giving back to the RC community who has given so much to us.     

A Main Hobbies’ 60,000 square foot warehouse and 85 full-time enthusiasts/employees are located in Chico, California.  Just across town lies our full service retail store for the hobbyist who wants to stroll through the aisles browsing our complete selection of kits, parts, accessories, models, trains and toys.  The company is happy to open the doors of our indoor, climate controlled, off-road, testing facility for year round racing to anyone wishing to get a few laps in.  During 2013, A Main Hobbies supported over 50 tracks, races, clubs, or flying events worldwide and was active in supporting our local youth of the Boys and Girls Club of America.

A Main Hobbies was recently awarded our fifth consecutive Bizrate Circle of Excellence award for online retailers, for the second year in a row being the only such remote control and hobby company to earn the honor in 2011.  We were also recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in America according to the INC. 5000, placing 41st in the retail segment.

Take a moment to read what a few of over 220,000 repeat customers are saying about our:

"A Main Hobbies has probably the most comprehensive RC range in the world - no exaggeration. From Associated to XRay you can find your kits, spares, hop ups and accessories all at great prices. For those of us ordering from overseas, their prices and delivery times are most times quicker than local hobby stores. A Main Hobbies is always my first port of call."

"WOW!! What else can I say? I'm from Australia and I can tell you with absolute confidence that A Main Hobbies has fast and accurate service. I received my order in one week to Australia from the US and the prices are better then what I can get from my local hobby store! It doesn't make sense to shop anywhere else for your hobby needs, go to www.AMainHobbies.com.  You will be amazed at the large range or products and user friendly website. They will have what you need!"

"A Main Hobbies hit the nail on the head with superb customer service! I placed a large order on a Friday night and was working on my build by noon the next day. A Main is everything that the hobbyist needs, from entry level to pro across the spectrum. Thank you for the outstanding service!"

Customer Service
"I have never experienced such good service in all my life. These people go out of their way to support any form of radio control. Their prices are extremely competitive and the follow up service is the best in the world. I have ordered from many different hobby shops worldwide and none come close to A Main Hobbies.... Keep up the good work and friendly service."

"I am a 51 year old hobby junkie. I have done most of the hobbies out there at some point and as a result I have dealt with most of the hobby shops out there. I can really appreciate a place like A Main Hobbies that sells at affordable prices & gives you information on the products you are looking at. Do not forget the rebate program. Way above all the others. Their online store is great and easy to navigate. I also enjoy their specials and scratch & dent products.  It is a pleasure doing business with them and I will continue to be a loyal customer."
