Hobby Nut provide me with a wonderful buying experience. The owner was very helpful in assisting us with a starter plane. I also had the opportunity to see him attend other customers. He was very busy and really helpful to the other four customers at the store while I was there. By the way, all of them purchased products from him.
I have to say that I was very surprised to see how malicious those who bashed him are. This man works hard to support a family and run a small business. I read terrible comments in those reviews such as mocking the size of his business and bragging about beating his prices on the internet. His prices are fair and his business is wonderfully personable. Don't take out your personal frustrations due to your failures out by beating down small busienss owners. It's small businesses like Hobby Nut that move this economy.
I congratulate Hobby Nut for such great service and want to tell you how happy I am to see that your business is doing well.

I was surprised to find negative reviews of the Hobby Nut and its owner. I've been trading there for over 5 years and have always been treated with courtesy. The owner (Clark) and staff are extremely knowledgeable and have shown a lot of patience with me. You can't beat this Local Hobby Shop as a source of information and assistance. I don't understand the gripes about pricing. Hobby Nut matches Tower Hobbies prices! sure, you have to pay Florida sales tax, but you don't have to pay any shipping charges. If a special order is received from the supplier in a damaged condition, the folks at Hobby Nut have always returned it. I've encountered the opposite situation in another store where the manager would not or could not (not knowledgeable about the product) acknowledge the damaged merchandise, just to make the sale. In the numerous times I've been in the shop, Ive never seen another customer leave upset or dissatisfied.

My son and i have going to this store for years, thay always seem to have what we're looking for and if they don't they always get it for us in ampal time.we always have lots of fun joking around with the said grumpy old man; he's great. Maybe some of these guys that don't like this place should try buying something.
like the old saying , "says you don't bring piece steak to Outback steak house and ask them to cook it for you.....

What diverse opinions on this store. I haven??t been there, but I did notice that most of the negative comments, have all been rated by other customers as being helpful. All the positive comments have not been rated by other customers at all. I would have to conclude that the negative people are ganging up on this establishment.

If you'd like to be berated by a grumpy old man, give Hobby Nut a try. The owner is such a miserable, angry and condescending individual it's scary. Prices are high, inventory is outdated and you'll be treated like they're doing you a favor by letting you in their tiny store. What a joke!

They just dont make you feel welcome here. Im fortunate to have a decent cash flow right now and wanted to buy some toys I never really got as kid that I always wanted. I bought and RC Plane and wanted a helicopter as well but it didnt seem like they wanted to sell me one believe it or not so i left without one. The older guy doesnt seem to like what hes doing and this is the person you should avoid. The younger kid who has been there both times I went helped me fix my plane and he seems like a good kid and is the person you would want to talk to IMO. BOTTOM LINE: Store is tiny, maybe have 3 electric RC planes to choose from, and not a very friendly atmosphere (lacks enthusiasm) albeit helpful but reluctant. Also I have found that this hobby shop is not an authorized Great Planes dealer and from my understanding they distribute mostly all Electric rc planes.

Cons: Small selection of planes

I went into this store with trepidation after having read the reviews on this site. I can honestly say that those negative reviews are dead wrong. I went to buy my son a starter helicopter after doing some research in the internet. The people there were very nice, knowledgable and patiently answered my questions. I also compared thier prices to others online and found them to be average. I found really low prices online that turned out to be bait and switch.

This store is beyond horrible, how is this place still in business. I was a first time visitor to this store looking for a helicopter and I left within 5 mins because of the woman's rudeness. My business will go elsewhere. ABUSIVE CUSTOMER SERVICE is a BIG issue here.

Store has good selection of products but the service is HORRIBLE and prices are very HIGH. All the people working there are very RUDE. I think it is family owned. Shop there at your own risk and only if you really have to!!!!!

Wow! I have never experienced such a rude old man. He obviously has some serious anger issues. If he does not enjoy his job or interacting with customers, he should work from home. Scary experience. Rude service and overpriced RC products that you can buy online 30% cheaper and without sales tax. I am convinced this store will be out of business soon-especially in this economy. Stay away or go in if you are a glutton for punishment. You really have to see it to believe it.

My two sons and I visited the store on a rainy Saturday afternoon. It was quite an amazing event. There were two employees that assisted my boys showing them a small indoor helicopter that just totally was what we needed to play with at home. The store owner was showing others a simulator program that they have set up on a computer we also purchased this. Now we have a great place to visit for birthday and holiday presents. They also have a selection of products for school projects. I would like to thank Clark for such a great store that is in our neighborhood. And advise all parents with children to go there.

I have been a customer for 14 years he has never sod me any thing that I can not get parts for or that he can't fly drive or fix. He has taught me a lot about the R/C hobby cars, planes and helicopters. I have seen him give customers batteries and chargers knowing that the customer did not charge the batteries per the manufactures directions.he will order items he does not have in stock. All the people who work there know how to use what they sell and share their knowledge.

I had heard how rude the store owner was but I wanted to judge for myself. When I walked in the old guy glanced at the broken chopper in my hand and rolled his eyes (but did not acknowledge I entered his establishment). After waiting for 10 min without a single greeting of any kind, I decided to leave. He was "helping" another customer in a rude fashion, as he tossed him around to another employee. I decided at that point I wasn't going to deal with rude service so I decided to leave. Only then did he acknowledge I was even there...as I was walking out the door. By the way, there is a great hobby store on University Drive/595, where I should have gone in the first place. Think of the economic hardships we are all experiencing before treating your customers like dirt. If you hate your job so much, retire.

RUDE, CREEPY MANAGEMENT, HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE, HIGH PRICES, POOR SELECTION. The guy running this place is so rude! He belittles customers, talks down to employees, and refuses to sell parts for RC Cars, Helicopters or Planes if you can't prove (w/ an actual receipt) that you bought the item at his store (even if you really did!). I would rather drive 40 miles then buy from this guy. Hope he goes out of business soon. Can't believe he lasted this long with the jerky attitude he walks around with. WORST EXPERIENCE IN MY LIFE!!!!

The owner was such a tyrant! He berated his employees, reamed out some guy on the phone looking for replacement parts and threw another guy out of the store all in the 30-40 min I was there with my wife. This was the week before Christmas. Wow! Then he goes on to say how people can be so difficult. We didn't say a word, but when we left we looked at each other like I can't believe this guy is in business. RUN DON'T WALK FROM THIS STORE. The only good thing about this store is the name. Hobby Nut. Very true.

I must say I enjoy going into this store. The owner and staff have been very knowledgable and nice in the past and they have great things to buy. I have found that they have everything you might need from RC airplanes, helicopters and cars, to also getting your RC back in the air or on the road again. One stop shopping and the best place to go to get that gift for someone who has everything you could think of! Great place and fair prices!

The store is great and filled with a lot of stuff to help you out in your hobby needs..I've been going there for like 5 months and even thoe they don't carry everything you need, the owner is a nice guy and willing to help you out in ordering and giving some one on one time to help you.. Some people are stupid ( the guy who wrote the comment under this one) and don't want to read and don't want to rearch there investments so they ask the owner to fix it for free and then get mad when they feel dumb about not knowing how to do anything.. I know because, i'm a costomer and was there the day this idiot was there screaming at this owner for not fixing his plane fast enouyght.. Nothiing gettes to me more that some old spoiled ex cop like the one who wrote the message under this one.. Hey guy, advise from a 25 year old, grow up and stop being a girl..

I have been flying RC for many years and I have been a customer at many different hobby shops, that being said every time i have been at the hobby nut the owner has had a horrible attitude. He is very very dismissive towards customers and will actually berate your line of thinking. He is really not interested in customer service at all. To be honest I absolutely hate shopping there b/c I dread interacting with the owner. I try to do all my stuff mail order but sometimes i am forced to go there. As far as selection it is very limited, 1 or 2 glow airplanes, some RC cars, most stuff there is electric. His prices are in line with the industry, nothing special. Basically I go to the hobby nut b/c there is nowhere else locally to go. The hobby nut should watch out, the minute someone opens a store in the Miami area his butt will be out of business, what a miserable person.

The man that is usually there knows his stuff. They can seem expensive sometimes, but a lot of hobbies simply are expensive. They have a wide range of items from cheap stuff to R/C planes costing thousands. Drop by their store sometime and you will want to spend hours looking around. They are a very good store.
