Winks Hobbies in Ithaca Has What You Are Looking For

How many of you remember what it was like to watch RC model airplanes fly, dive and swoop above you when you were a child? Wink's Hobbies in Ithaca remembers and can't wait to introduce you to the wonderful hobby or RC models, or to fuel your current interest with some of the latest RC model trucks, boats, helicopters, and rockets.


We are your first stop hobby shop in Ithaca and have a wide array of RC models, kits, parts and accessories that are sure to excite and motivate you. Our knowledgeable and professional staff are here to help and guide you whether you are brand new to the hobby or looking to really go to the next level.


RC Model Trucks


There are so many various RC model trucks from simple off-road types in small scale, to huge semis and excavating equipment models. No matter what type of terrain you crave – mountains, sand dunes, mud bogs and anything in between – there are RC model trucks just for you.


Maybe you need an RTR (ready to run) model that is set to go straight out of the box. We have that. Maybe you're ready to build your own from a kit. Well, we have that, too. How about graduating up from electric motors to the exciting nitro powered systems? The choices, models and levels are practically endless.


RC model trucks bring a great sense of pride and accomplishment to the hobbiests who have immersed themselves in this particular corner of the hobby. Children are so enthused over the control they have with the remote and moving an RC model through a series of obstacles. Ignite their interest into a passion by sharing knowledge with them, making the time to build models from kits, repair the damage from those nasty tree crashes, and involve your child in all aspects of the RC hobby.


This is not the time to sit there and do all the work yourself. A child has many capabilities and skills that will astound you if you give him/her a chance. Make each moment count. Teach proper safety and driving skills. Increase the obstacles or terrain difficulty. As your child improves in skills, level up to a new power system, better performance RC model truck, airplane, or racing car.


There are just so many options available and you are not stuck with one. Wink's Hobbies in Ithaca has everything from basic starter models, kits, and nitro powerhouses. Shopping at your Ithaca hobby shop gives you first-hand knowledge, hands-on experiences and a staff of enthusiasts here who can help you get the best RC model for your money and expertise.


Although it may seem quicker and cheaper to go down to the local box department store and pick up a remote control vehicle, the truth is, you will be disappointed and sometimes within minutes of opening the box. 


Mass produced RC models for department stores are simply toys without any longevity built in. You can't fix them when broken and sending them back to the manufacturer is expensive and time consuming. When you purchase your RC model trucks from Wink's Hobbies in Ithaca, you can be assured that you will have our assistance every step of the way. 

We want you to enjoy this hobby as much as we do, and we want you to build up your expertise to where you feel comfortable.


Stop by and see us soon. The summer is upon us shortly and we know you want to get out there and have a blast.
