History

In May, 2004, Kendall and Kelly Bennett started AMain Hobbies out of their 2-car garage in sunny Chico, California. Kendall, with his passion for RC hobbies, having a software engineering degree and experience running a successful software development company, decided to start the company of his dreams. Kelly, coming from an extensive customer service and human resources background, pitched in with helping customers by phone and filled orders, while Kendall worked his wizardry with the website. 

The company grew quickly; mostly from word of mouth of RC racers on forums. AMain Hobbies gained its quality reputation by maintaining a broad selection of inventory, delivering excellent customer service, providing expedited shipping at reasonable rates, and giving back to the RC community by sponsoring races and charitable events. 

The business has had to move to 3 different locations in its first ten years of business so it could continue to grow and succeed. We are now located in a 60,000 square foot building which houses our distribution center and offices. We have an RC track: Silver Dollar RC Raceway, which is an outdoor state-of-the-art RC raceway located at the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds in Chico, CA, that hosted the 2013 IFMAR Worlds race event.  We also run two successful retail stores in town: AMain Hobbies which sells RC hobby products and Cyclesport which is a leading retailer of cycling products.
