Re: richmond rc

They were, many years ago (20+) when I dealt with them on a wholesale level . Not sure if it run by the same owners. You have not given much for details on how much time before each email and how quick the response was required ?

Re: richmond rc

As already mentioned; Long ago they were THE Canadian importer of VMAR ARFs and supplied many other items across the country - mainly as a Wholesaler to Local Hobby Shops.

With the evolution of the hobby and the internet they seem to have been fading, I have not looked at their web site in 10 years. I am surprised that they are still around.

I would be interested to know if they are really still in business, or if they just neglected to take their web site down.

Keep us posted and good luck.

Re: richmond rc

All things said and done I believe that Horizon Hobbies has pretty much taken over
a huge amount of the RC market but there are still others in business and usually specialty items like RC surface , higher end heli's , larger scale aircraft and gas engines , jet turbines and similar specialty aviation items are handled by smaller companies. As Scaleguy says, call them and find out for sure.

I tried doing some tracking the company by different means and find that the last
change they did to their website was back in 2009 ; if that helps.
