R/C Planes and Helis

Specialty Hobby Shop – Flint, MI

At Rider’s Hobby Shop you’ll find Radio Control Aircraft of all sizes and types. We’ve got airplanes and helicopters for beginners through advanced flyers.  We have trainer airplanes with anti crash technology to aid beginners in learning to fly, up through highly maneuverable sport aircraft that require advanced flying skills.  We stock a wide range of Ready to Fly and Almost Ready to Fly models, as well as kits for those who prefer the challenge of doing it yourself.  We have aircraft available in Electric, Nitro and Gasoline versions.  We also carry sailplanes for the quiet flight enthusiast.

We carry helicopters from tiny indoor only versions to large, outdoor only models that are capable of 3D flight.  We also carry all the parts you will need to keep your bird in the air.

Not only can we get your spirits off the ground with a Radio Controlled Aircraft, but we can keep it there with a great selection of engines, radio systems, building supplies, and tools.
