The Hobby

I asked Arthur about his view on the hobby in general and the state of the hop-up part business.  Arthur said that the company has been in business for 16 years and they have seen the ups and downs with market fluctuations.  In general, though, he says the most important part of the hobby is that people must be able to enjoy the process of learning, building and tuning their r/c models.
