Sad news for those of us who still frequent the local hobby shops. Pandi’s Sureflite has closed for good. I don’t have the details why, but I’m sure the economy may have had something to do with it. This story is all too familiar for struggling businesses of any type, especially those who face cut-throat competition from overseas suppliers. I wrote a short article expressing my thoughts on this here.
I personally would like to thank Pandi for his generous support of our hobby over the last decade or so. He has been an unwavering advocate of electric flying and a friend to all local hobbyists. Please express your gratitude next time you see him.
Please use your local hobby shops or they will go away.
