So, What Do You Carry?
We're glad you asked! We're probably best known for our large selection of radio control vehicles, including all the major categories: cars and trucks, airplanes, multi-rotor aircraft (drones), helicopters, and boats. We're the area's best stocked supplier of model railroad supplies, and we've got a wide assortment of board, card, and roleplaying games. We've got tons of other cool stuff too, including telescopes, metal detectors, Gundam model kits, Funko Pop! figures, and classic toys like yo-yos and slot cars.
Can You Help Me Get Started?
Don't know anything about radio control, trains, or plastic models? No problem! We've been helping beginners get into hobbies since we opened in 2002, and we can help you pick out the perfect R/C car for you or your child, answer your questions about drone regulations, or recommend a gift for a friend who's into Dungeons & Dragons. If you'd like to learn to fly, you might also want to talk to our friends at the Pine Belt RC Association; their flying field is located on the Purvis Oloh Road in western Lamar County.
Where Are You Again?
We're conveniently located on Old Highway 11, just off U.S. Highway 98 in the Oak Grove area of Hattiesburg. If you're not familiar with the area, we've got a helpful map with directions. We're easy to get to from anywhere in the Pine Belt, be it Purvis, Laurel, or Columbia, and we've got regular customers from Poplarville, Tylertown, Wiggins, McComb, and almost everywhere else in the area!
If it's been a while since you've visited, you should stop by the store and see what's new! We're constantly adding cool things to our assortment, and you may be surprised by what you'll find here!
