About Our Auction

We all belong to a unique community of modelers, clubs, business owners and organizations who share a deep passion for radio-control. The RC hobby spans generations and bonds us like glue. It’s a way of life, and for some — like our local, trusted hobby shops — it also provides a livelihood. That livelihood now faces an unprecedented challenge.

As you know, the restrictions that currently prevent brick-and-mortar hobby retailers from normal operation have threatened their ability to support themselves and their families. Those shops are always there when we need them, with great products, expert advice and on-the-spot support. Now, they need us.

It’s time to pitch together like we always do when a member of our RC community needs a hand. Horizon® Hobby is therefore launching a special fundraising initiative to help our retail partners through these difficult times. We’re asking our media partners, including you, to join us in getting the word out to members of the RC community everywhere.

This fundraising campaign ends on June 1, when all net proceeds will go directly to Horizon Certified Partner™ Hobby Shops.

We’ve made it very easy for RC enthusiasts and friends to lend a hand. In addition to the auction, a new web page at is taking donations and offering merchandise for sale that lets everyone show support for their local shops. All proceeds go to this important fundraising effort.

About Hobbies for Good

Radio control is an outstanding hobby experience. RC appeals to all ages and every generation, it lasts a lifetime, and it encompasses builders, flyers, bashers and racers — an enormous spectrum of enthusiasts who bond through our mutual passion for RC. We come together in local, community-based clubs and organizations to share our love for the hobby. Through Hobbies for Good, we’re also able to use our resources in a variety of ways to give back to our RC community and help it thrive.

Of course, we’re also members of a much broader, global community of passionate RC people. Hobbies for Good therefore also works to aid and positively influence that larger community in its times of need.

Horizon Hobby Hobbies for Good works on several levels to support causes and interests that matter to the RC community and beyond.
