Question OT: Mini R/C Helicopter Ques.

Hey, does anyone know of a local Vancouver area hobby shop that sells those mini R/C helicopters? I'm looking for a Smartech Aero-Hawk or eSky Honey Bee.
If possible I'd rather give the local shops a chance before I buy online.

exactly... you're looking for a hobby shop not a r/c helicopter shop... then call up the hobby shops you find and ask them if they carry any...I know there are definately some there that do since I was once looking for an r/c gas powered helicopter however didnt have the $7xx.00 dollars to spend

I just thought somebody might know or recommend one, save me calling every hobby shop in town to find out they only carry model trains....

There another shop in Parcrest Plaza in Burnaby that deals strictly with planes and helicopters. I can't remember the name of it but its by Benti Sushi.
They were quite helpful.

R/C Pit Stop in Langley has helicopters, but they were dicks the last time I went in there. If they still have their Surrey location, I would go there. They were great at that location.

There's a place called Jet Hobbies in Richmond... www.jet-hobbies.com I'm not sure if they sell Smartech, but I'm pretty sure they have the Hirobo XRB SR which is what I have, and it flies great in my living room, and up and down the stairs. Its not really an outdoor heli, but if its really calm outside you may be able to fly it as well. BTW I have an Aerohawk for sale if you're interested.
