Hobby shops in Cape Breton NS

Hey guys, I wasn't really sure where to post this so if this is the wrong area im sorry,

Ive been looking for a while but cant locate any hobby shops around the Cape Breton area and wondered if anyone else may know of a place?

As of right now Im ordering any parts I need for my Redcat Earthquake 3.5 from Vancouver Hobbies which part pricing is great but anything the size of bumper braces or larger costs me $14 to ship and im waiting a week to get it.

When it comes time for fuel I either have to go to Halifax for it (6 hour drive) or try to find someone that will ship it which gets very costly.

Our local future shop has some parts for electric traxxas but they really don't have much in the selection of spare parts its mainly accessories and strictly electric items.

If there is anything out there im not aware of id love to know and support a local business instead of having parts shipped

There has never been a shop in CB as long as I know, but if your looking for batteries look up begoracing.com they have free shipping options and I buy from www.terranovahobby.ca as well. As for parts my local hobby shop in Halifax doesn't carry my parts so I go a lot with Amain hobbies and go with their UPS-post office setup so you don't get dinged with those brokerage fees.

I too like amain hobbies and great hobbies myself.
I went with a two stroke gasser so no chasing nitro fuel.
If ya ever need a hand or a place to bash lots pits out my way and my track.

Re: Hobby shops in Cape Breton NS

I just moved to Antigonish from Toronto, and I can totally relate to your problems. It seems I'm the only RC'er in this town for sure. Figuring this would happen, I stocked up on parts for everything I own, so now I'm my own RC store, and just buy batteries from HobbyKing in HKG. For Redcat products(I have the EXP drift car), you can try www.--------------.com in Toronto. Its closer than Vancouver, and I believe they will ship to you. They are a Redcat only dealer so parts should not be a problem.
Any RC'ers in the vicinity who want to get together, feel free to PM me and maybe we can start something in the area.
