Hobby King at NEAT Fair

Sep 14, 2013 1 Comment by

At the NEAT Fair, I had a great opportunity to meet Toby Osmond, Vice-President Sales and Marketing of Hobby King. Toby showed off some of the new products on their way from the company. I was impressed with what I think is a first for the hobby–a model that comes out of the box with Night Flying lighting installed at the factory. Called the Fly-Beam, this all foam trainer/sport plane can be seen clearly with the lights switched on!

Pretty cool.

One of my favorites, the Fly Baby. Nice size and excellent scale looks.
