HobbyKing USA sells a wide variety of radio control toys, equipment and accessories, including airplanes, helicopters, multirotor drones, boats, bikes and cars. The company also sells numerous robotics parts and kits, as well as airsoft gun replicas, accessories and numerous other electronics, including 3D printers.
HobbyKing sells all of its equipment online, and it is then shipped from one of the company's warehouse stores. The company has two warehouse stores in the United States, HobbyKing USA East located in Arkansas and HobbyKing USA West located in Lakewood, Washington. HobbyKing also operates European, Russian, Australian and United Kingdom warehouses.
Although the equipment is only sold online or over the phone, customers can visit the warehouse to pick up their items. To pick items up at the warehouse, it is necessary to first contact HobbyKing and obtain a pickup confirmation, as the company does not allow visitors who do not have prior confirmation and valid identification. HobbyKing makes an effort to ship most items within 48 hours, except during weekends or if the item is backordered. The company packs and ships from 9 to 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday. Backordered items are generally shipped within 14 days.
HobbyKing was founded by radio-control enthusiast Anthony Hand in 2001.
