Roy's Hobby Shop has provided people in Hurst, Texas, and the entire Dallas/Fort Worth area with radio-controlled planes, helicopters, boats, and cars for more than 35 years. Our knowledgeable staff use and abuse the products we sell in our hobby shop, and if we find something good for RC planes, you can bet it'll be on our shelves soon after.
About the Previous Owner & New Owner
Roy can't remember a time he didn't love planes. He has built models since he was a kid, and grew up to be a B-52 pilot and later a Braniff™ pilot. In 1978, when he was still with Braniff, he started Roy's Hobby Shop out of the back of a friend's store. Once Braniff discontinued service, he became an FAA inspector and the hobby shop built momentum.
Roy maintained a great hobby shop and as the new owner as of May 9th, 2014, I promise to do everything in my power to continue his important legacy in the hobby business. I have been in the hobby business for almost 8 years and very honored to own such a fine store! ~ Al Cannan
The Hobby Shop Today
Roy relocated his hobby shop to its current location in 1982. He and his committed team kept things going until he retired from the FAA. The shop continued to grow and evolve, and soon began to sell radio-controlled devices. Modeling continues to be a passion that shines through everything we do.
