I have been doing r/c for many years. Tammie's is the best shop I have ever been too. huge selection and competitive prices. There staff is knowledgeable and friendly. I drive over a hour each way to shop there.

Bought a RC simulator and after finding out that the remote that came with it did not allow me to set pitch curves I decided to go with something else. They did not have what I was looking for which was fine but they would not take back the simulator even thought I had my reciept. They said it was missing items however I unpacked it on a table and repacked it right there. I also looked at another store to see what was included in a new box and there was nothing missing. They simply did not want to let me return it.

I have been shopping at Tammie's for several years now. I have always been greeted by friendly sales personnel and have always been asked if I needed any help or was looking for anything in particular. When I call to ask on a particular item availability they always check to verify for me and if not in stock or available, they always offer to order for me. I wish I got treated like this more often. Shopping would be a much more pleasant experience.

My Grandson and I started playing with Lionel trains at Christmas, and since we live on the west side, ended up at Tammie's. We have both been very satisfied with their helpfulness, knowledge, and patience to listen to a five year old tell them what he wants, and even what they "should" do or have. Even the day we wandered into the remote airplane section, the person patiently showed him how to fly the remote control airplane. So, we have had wonderful experiences, but I do believe you might get out of it what you put into it. We are happy

They seem to have a nice big store with lots of stock, and I got reasonable help when I went looking for supplies for 1/2 A airplane motors. But, another time when I called and asked about Micro Maxx rocket motors, the lady who answered the phone said she was sure they had those, since they did have rocket motors. Come on down. I told her I would be driving 15 miles to visit her store, so maybe she could, ah, check. Oops. No, they don't have those.

Summer 2008 I bought an RC car 2 lithium batteries and upgraded remote control a nd spent about $650. after 5 uses of the car it quit working and i still can't get answers from their staff as to why. I have been disappointed by their service and have gotten 3 different explanations from 3 sales people as to settings to recharge the 2 $125.00 each batteries. Still confused as to my investment of dollars spent and the hours of fun I was hoping to get, now it just sits in my shop gathering dust, big bummer!

Len is always helpful and answers all of my questions. Many times I have special ordered an engine or box car for my son. As in most things in life, if you are nice to people, they are nice back! Be a nice customer -- not a pain in the ___ - and you will be treated accordingly.

Tammies has great products, and for the most part the folks at the til (front of the store) are friendly. The folks in the back are horrible. They are impatient, rude, and even insult their customers if they don't know the latest in RC technology. Tammies should do a better job hiring their minimum wage workers.

It may have been a fluke but my first experience with Tammy's was far better than the others listed here. The staff was very helpful, the prices blew their competition away, and their selection was vast.

I had to pick up some adhesives and accelerant and found that they were sold out of the atomizer bottles of the accelerant. When I inquired the staff they appologized for not having anymore in stock (and I knew why, it was because my classmates had been in before me and bought them out), but then the staff took the extra step of going into the back and finding one of the stores half used bottles and gave it to me for free so that I could use the refill that I was also purchasing at the same time. It is the little extras like that that go a long way in building a loyal customer for life.

Everytime I go into Tammies they can never help. Not a single person there is ever able to help. Do they ever offer to order something I'm asking about? Of course not! Their supples are over priced and subpar. I'd rather drive clear across Portland than to ever visit this store again.

And No, they didn't pay me to say this.

I wanted to purchase a RC Helicopter and stopped into Tammies Hobbies.

WOW! They not only have everything, but they know everything!

From Trains, Planes, Boats, Choppers, Models, Kites, Rockets and more! They are friendly and very helpful and stock tons of parts for all kinds of RC vehicles.

They have every kind of Model KIT as well as a huge Model Rail Road department with every scale train and parts. And they have TONS of RC Vehicles! Their store is very large compared to other hobby shops I have been in. They let you shop and won't bother you, but if you need help they will give you all the information you need on your hobby. They have different employees in each hobby section that knows there stuff. IE: Model Rail Road has their own people, RC has their own people, and so on. So you get get the knowledge and information on your specific hobby and not some "ONE MAN BAND KNOW IT ALL"

They have plenty of staff of all ages on hand in every department to help.
From a 20 year olds to 60 year olds. And everything in between. So no matter how young or old you feel at home and get the information you need!

Ok, hey, how about some free Chopper parts for this review? HA HA
Like I said no one paid me or asked me to say this. I'm just very happy with their service, selection, and knowledge!
Thanks!

My husband and I stopped into Tammies Hobbies as we were interested in purchasing a radio controlled boat. This store is packed to the top with hobby stuff. I was especially surprised at the quality and selection found within the store. Just wandering down the aisles you are sure to find a new project you will want to take home and work on. We were overwhelmed with the number of radio controlled boats found in the store. Even better, their selection covers every price range. We found our boat and didn't feel like we were paying too much for a hobby boat. If you have a hobby, you must go to Tammies Hobbies. Located right off of 217, the location is very convenient and easy to find.

Tammy's is a hobby store in Beaverton, just west of 217 on Canyon Road. They carry everything from doll house supplies, to rockets, to planes, trains and automobiles. If you have any hobby interest you're sure to find it here. Even Brio and Thomas for the little ones!!

The best thing about Tammy's is the selection, they tend to carry a wide selection of items for each hobby, whereas many hobby shops only have a few items for each or only a few hobbies represented well. If you're looking for something you'll almost always find it at Tammy's without having to place a special order, although they'll be happy to do that too.

The staff is very knowledgeable, particularly with radio-controlled products and model trains. They are very friendly and helpful.

The only drawback is that because of the location they are often very busy and their parking lot is inconvenient. Also, their prices tend to run close to the msrp with only a handful of items discounted.

If you're looking for something most other stores don't carry, Tammy's is well worth the stop.

PROS: Selection
CONS: Cost
