In response to
an email from Hobbytown USA
marketing, Ian and Ken from the club were able to attend the Grand Opening celebration for Hobbytown USA
in San Jose to represent RCMCC. The owner, Brian, graciously had a table setup
for us in the back to promote our hobby. We met many interested R/C personalities, both newbies and veterans, that were amazed
by the bikes! Flyers were also handed out. The owner showed his interest as well, motivated by the fact that he himself was
an owner of a 1:1 Aprilla. Good news is that Hobbytown San Jose is planning on selling the TT FM-1E, TT Ducati RTR and the
newly reintroduced Kyosho HOR bike w/spare parts in the near future.
Below are pictures of Ken, Kevin, and Ian’s bikes from the club. To keep the collection at a good size, we included
one of each bike: Kyosho RTR, Kyosho Mark1, Kyosho HOR, almost complete Kyosho nitro HOR (pics were taken but we will keep
it top secret for now), TT electric, NF nitro, Bergonzoni nitro w/starter box and front brake kit, Pumillo Tiempo nitro, and
just for kicks, a one-wheel-drive sidecar from the UK. Ken also brought his vintage DWA commando, Kraft Elec Rider, and Royal
electric to trace the unique history of R/C bikes.
