We recently did a Product Spotlight on the PPR Reptile Radio Wheel Grips. If you haven’t seen it, you can check it out HERE.

We just heard they are having a sale, $1 off any of their grips till September 1st, 2014. So if you have a radio that needs a new or improved grip, check out the official PPR Grips website.

Every time I visit they have new grips, and they are all pretty limited edition, so if you see something you like, the time to grab them is now.

It’s Friday, Friday, there’s Mystery Links on Friday!

hobbytown_orland Not wanting to leave fellow RC enthusiasts out on the chance for some good old pushing and shoving (and maybe some biting), we just got word that our localOrland Park Illinois Hobby Town store will offer 25% off all Helimax Helicopters! (sorry.. quads are not in on the deal). But if you have been thinking about getting a new heli, 25% off sounds like a good time to get in there! Sale starts Monday, November 25th at 10am and goes to Sunday, December 1st!

If you stop in, make sure you tell them Big Squid says hello, or at least make Kevin run around the store and get things down off of a high shelf.

futaba receiver sale
Futaba has just announced a big sale on a bunch of their receivers, and we all know you can never have enough of them.

If you have been a hobbyist for very long, it is likely your rc garage went from one car, to five cars, to a lot more than that very quickly. The process of pulling out and re-installing receivers grows old fast, with the Futaba sale you can save some bucks and some time. Futaba has marked off up to $50 on their receivers. Check out This Link to see how much you can save on the Futaba receivers that you need.
