Dear Valued Hobbico Customer:

Through that process, the Bankruptcy Court recently approved the sale of the RC business assets operated by Hobbico and certain affiliates to Horizon Hobby, LLC. Horizon Hobby has been in business since 1985 and serves hobby enthusiasts in the United States and around the world. Horizon Hobby also maintains a strong on-line presence and warmly welcomes Hobbico customers to its growing family. With this acquisition, Horizon Hobby looks to build upon Hobbico's great reputation for providing quality RC products to customers throughout the world.
