Everyone in the industry has had questions about the Horizon Hobby buyout of Hobbico, and I mean EVERYONE. Hobby shop owners, manufacturers, even your average basher, wants to know what's happening to some of their favorite brands. We recently had the honor of being invited to sit down with Joe Ambrose, the CEO and President of Horizon Hobby, and ask him a bunch of questions that we had and knew that our readers had. When we were finished with the interview, we left with some great answers to our questions as well as learning a little more about the true passion Joe has for the RC industry. For the regular listeners of the podcast, this episode features Big Squid RC's Brian Smolik and Tim Mohr doing the question asking, while Tim Gluth did the intro and Editing. This all happened while we were down in Champaign IL during the 2018 Horizon RC Fest. We know not everyone wants to listen to a podcast, we were hoping to have the transcript for this up at the same time, but it's taking a little longer to make that happen. As soon as we have that done, we will let everyone know. We can't thank Joe and Horizon Hobby enough for the amazing opportunity to sit down and chat, and hopefully answer some questions people had about what's been going on.
