BH does have various ARF Trainers, electric park fliers, electic helis, and some radios, servos and engines. I assume they would know some stuff.

Thats okay though, I found everything I need online, and there's more than enough info to be found online as well.

I will go check out Phils Hobbies though - thanks for the suggestion.

Here's Norburn's contact info-

Norburn Model Aircraft Supply
4 - 5901 East Broadway
Burnaby, B.C.
Contact Us At:
Inquiries: 604-294-4114

Dean is the owner of the shop.

Here's a Mapblast link to the store:


If you scroll left on the map, you will see Oak St which is a short walk from GF strong. You should be able to catch a bus on Oak to a Skytrain station and take that to Burnaby. I would phone Dean and ask which is the best station to get off at.

Hope all is well for you - my Dad was in GF Strong for a couple of months last year after having major back surgery. He did very well there.

Norburn Model Aircraft Supply is the largest and best stocked company in the Lower Mainland. Dean is very knowlegable person regarding RC aircraft and will order you anything you need. I buy most of my hardware...accessories and model building supplies here.
They have a great selection of aircraft, props aircraft hardware and engines etc. If you need a special order parts or specialty items... Dean will get them for you quick.

Jet Hobbies has mainly Helicopter and inexpensive Arf kits.
If Helicopters are your game.... Andys da Man.....

Andy is very friendly and makes some great deals.
Andy is a very nice fellow. OS, Thunder Tiger and Futaba radios are his main brands. Also he is the Main distributor for BME Aircraft, engines, and laminated props.
Great prices on Aluminum spinners.....
Small shop but big heart. Well worth the drive.
I buy my engines here.

Phil's Hobby Hut has been around a long time.
They have a very good supply of Aircraft kits, used aircraft and most
other aircraft related supplies.
Just like the hobby shop you knew years ago.
He has Unionville kits in stock and a good selection of floatplane hardware. Well worth the trip.......

No website. Call for address.
Tel: (604) 270-3714

A short drive from Jet Hobbies.[/b]

I buy most of my kits online at one of the online shops in Deadmont... I mean Edmonton Local shops just don't seem to come close to their pricing. But I definately buy everthing else locally at one of the forementioned shops.

Hope this helps.
