Smitty Built-Ins.c0m - I'm a small business owner of 12 years and know the ins and outs of small business. Although HP is a large corp., I am witness to efforts made to satisfy my every need in regards to store purchases and service. One must realize the vast amount of information a service tech must retain, with all the different brands and models out there. I applaud the effort being made by the staff to even have the courage to face veterans in the hobby with years and years of experience. The management won my respect by listening to my dilemma, honoring warranty and resolving the problem I had.
.
My son and I will be making all purchases from the HP Convoy location even though there is a different hobby shop, here in Chula Vista, right down the street. I'd rather make the 16 mile trek to support their store.

Simply a miserable staff quality, miserable than anything else i've seen in my life! If your RC will not work, they will rip you OFF! they would say it is not our fault and they wouldn't let you exchange or return! The Store's manager (blue eyes, long hair) treats customers as if they were pigs! You would have to wait for no less than HALF AN HOUR till you actually make a payment, they're so slow (especially the manager). will never deal with them again!

Not only is everyone in there <18, no one there has any experience beyond the cash register. I was asking for simple advice on some battery cells, and I had to explain what I was talking about to the clerk. GIVE ME A BREAK! Honestly, after visiting this store I can see how the youth of America are subprime. Shop elsewhere, and go down the street to Discount Hobbies off of Clairemont Mesa Blvd.

I recently decided I will stop shopping at the location on Convoy street. I shop there practically every weekend with my young son but issues with the checkout and a couple of the clerks have turned me off. The problem is nearly every time I attempt to make a purchase and walk up to one of two cash registers I have to stand patiently and wait for a clerk to come help me make the purchase. Many times, after waiting several minutes, I will request assistance from the nearest clerk and will be told to try the other register. It seems to me that it would be beneficial to the business to have whichever clerk is nearby take a pause from what they may be doing and ring up my purchase. I've spent approximately $1,500 at this store in the past 12 months. My son will be disappointed but we will do our shopping at a different hobby store from this point forward.

I have been coming here for years, it's the best hobby store in the area. Their selection of radio control car and plane parts is excellent, and their prices are decent. Occasionally it's a little hard to get help, but the staff is usually knowledgable when you do.

Hobby people is a great hobby store. They have all types of RC stuff and much more. When I used to be into my RC car phase I would go to them for almost everything. The staff was very kind in helping me with problems I had along the way.

This is your one stop shop for hobby accessories. They basically have everything you need to fix up your models or rc cars, planes, etc. Lots of cars, ships, and planes to choose from and they have basically the whole Testors line here, so you can get that perfect color going. Prices are good compared to chain stores. The only quip I have about the place is that it is severely understaffed. There's only like 2-3 people working, so you'll be hard pressed if you need to ask a question.

This one time I was planing on making a rocket that would take me to outer space so I went to the store. The store had nothing that I needed to make it.

If you are ever bored and want a project to do go to hobby people. They have really cool stuff, from models to radio controled cars. I love this store they always have something that im interested in. The employees are super cool and know alot about the products they sell. The prices are also reasonable.

This place seems to have the best prices for hobby gear in San Diego. the problem is that it is absolutely impossible to get any service or help with a product. If they got more clerks, this would be a much easier store to deal with.

PROS: great deals
CONS: no customer service

During my RC car obsession days, this was the only place I went to buy new parts to modify my project. They had everything but they sometimes the prices can be a little steep. You can buy other stuff such as basal wood bars to construct other art projects. It might not have a big as selection at Michaels but you can find equipment for your some kind of hobby you might have.
