More end of year industry thoughts…

Everybody’s getting retrospective with the closing of the New Year, and Brian (not our Brian, another Brian… seriously, there’s at least two guys named Brian in this world…) from Roger’s Hobby Center offers up his thoughts on the year passed in the r/c hobby world.  He’s got some interesting, thoughts:

And finally, I think 2010 is going to be known as the year electric power became cool. Electric cars have always outsold the nitro variety before, mainly due to price.

And with all the fun, but a third of the hassle, it’s no wonder that electric cars and trucks have taken center stage in the last year. I expect to see that margin grow in 2011.

Overall, another interesting read, so go check it out.
