Hobbico Closes A Main Hobbies Dealer Account



“Chico, California, November 16, 2007 – On Tuesday November 13th, Hobbico decided to close the A Main Hobbies dealer account with Great Planes Model Distributing. This account was closed without A Main Hobbies’ knowledge, and Hobbico/Great Planes will not provide any reason for closing this account. The A Main Hobbies dealer account with Great Planes was in good financial standing. Since the morning of Tuesday November 13th, A Main Hobbies had been trying to reconcile this situation with Hobbico/Great Planes, and on Thursday November 15th A Main Hobbies received a final phone call from Hobbico/Great Planes indicating their decision is final and will not be changed.

Due to this change, for an uncertain period of time, A Main Hobbies may no longer be able to offer certain brands of products for our customers to purchase. Some of these brands include:

  * O.S. Engines
  * Futaba
  * Great Planes
  * Hobbico
  * Duratrax
  * Heli-Max
  * O’Donnell Racing
  * ElectriFly
  * GRP

We apologize to our customers who have purchased those brands from us in the past and will no longer be able to purchase parts and accessories for them through A Main Hobbies. We will have a limited supply of these brands of products available at special prices until our stock is gone.
