About Us

Who Are We?

Passion, value and service drive us to bring you the very latest at the best price possible. We're always developing and sourcing new model products and then bringing them to you at the lowest price possible while maintaining quality, performance and service.

Our professional team includes engineers from various disciplines as well as designers, R/C officianados, full time sourcing agents, product testers and a lonely marketing manager. Our focus is and has always been on the products, not the hype.

 

Price

HobbyKing's prices are kept so low because of our direct link with factories & our own manufacturing capabilities.

We will never go through a vendor or middle man, the savings are always passed on to the customer. Being a low-profit organisation, hobbyking is often unable to further discuount it's products, however we do price match all our products! We feel our postage pricing is as fair as possible and delivery speed well within customers expectations.

Customer service is our top priority, and while some issues are beyond our control, we do our best to ensure your transaction exceeds your expectations. Should you have an issue with any of our products or service, please contact us via our Customer Support Centre (login first) to voice your concern.

Meet The Team

Anthony Hand (Company Owner)

Anthony Hand (Company Owner) Anthony is the Chairman, founder and owner of HobbyKing. Anthony's passion for R/C began in 1989 when he built his first model aircraft, a Sig Cadet, which he promptly crashed on the maiden flight and never flew again due to the high cost of repairs. In 2001, he regained an interest in R/C and started HobbyKing, bringing affordable Radio Control products to the market.

Anthony now spends most days looking for new product ideas and "testing" samples. His favorite model of all time is the Sonic-64.

Toby Osmond (Vice President Sales & Marketing)

Australian qualified lawyer with a black-belt in marketing magic. Toby joined HobbyKing after successfully starting and running HobbyKing's first franchise store.
