Do you need a great gift for Dad or a recent graduate? Maybe you're searching for something to keep the kids occupied this summer. Whatever your need or interest, Hub City Hobby can help! We have the Pine Belt's largest selection of hobby-class radio control vehicles, from inexpensive, beginner-friendly planes, cars, and quadcopters, to high-end solutions for expert hobbyists!
So, what's the hottest thing in the air right now? Quadcopters (often called drones)! Because their four-blade design makes them very stable in the air, quadcopters are a great choice for beginning pilots. Hub City Hobby has micro-sized quads like the Blade Faze and Estes Proto X, both suitable for indoor flight (outdoors with little to no wind) and priced under $35.00! We also have a great assortment of larger quadcopters, from fun aerobatic machines like the LaTrax Alias and Blade 200 QX to streaming-video equipped quads like the Parrot AR.Drone and Blade Glimpse FPV.
Interested in aerial photography? Check out the Blade 350 QX3 AP Quadcopter Combo, featuring a 1080p hi-def video camera, built-in GPS with a "Return to Home" feature, and the innovative SAFE stabilization system to help you get that perfect shot!
Radio control airplanes are still a popular choice, and thanks to today's advanced flight assistance technologies, beginners can start with planes that used to be strictly for intermediate to advanced pilots. The HobbyZone F4U Corsair S comes equipped with Horizon Hobby's SAFE system, which features a "Panic Recovery Mode" to help save your plane when things get out of control. When your skills improve, dial up the difficulty and fly loops, rolls, and other sport aerobatic maneuvers! The F4U Corsair S comes with everything you need to get started, and assembles in minutes.
Wondering what separates toy radio control (R/C) cars and trucks from true hobby class vehicles? There are many factors, including quality, durability, and the availability of repair and upgrade parts, but the most obvious difference is speed. Toy R/C vehicles usually top out around eight to ten miles per hour, while even inexpensive hobby class trucks like the ECX Ruckus are capable of speeds over twenty MPH straight out of the box! Some more advanced vehicles, such as the Traxxas Rustler VXL, come standard with brushless motors that allow them to travel at sixty to seventy MPH when paired with the right batteries. We also have gas-powered trucks, including America's favorite four wheel drive monster truck, the T-Maxx 3.3.
If you prefer dice and meeples to cars and helicopters, why not check out our large selection of board, card, miniature, and role-playing games? From classics like Catan to games based on popular entertainment properties like Star Wars, Star Trek, and Doctor Who, Hub City Hobby has what you want. Not sure what type of game you might enjoy? Ask us to help you choose a new game or take a look at expansions and accessories for their current favorites! We also have the area's best selection of Games Workshop products like Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000, plus Citadel brand paints, brushes, and adhesives.
Other family favorites available at Hub City Hobby include model railroad supplies, plastic model kits, rockets, and metal detectors! We've been serving Hattiesburg, Laurel, Columbia, and the rest of the Pine Belt since 2002. So whether you live in Purvis or Picayune, Wiggins or Waynesboro, come see us for holiday gift ideas for hobbyists of all ages!
