Well, I guess that's better than declaring bankruptcy and closing the doors.

rc peaked from 1987-1992, no surprise. everything started to change in 1993 as the sales went flat. it started to hit home in 1997 that was when the little guys really started to shutdown, then it went up the food chain to the larger and larger companies. however keep in mind this is not a problem in one area of the hobby it is the entire hobby world everything from trains, slotcars, models, science kits, airplanes, etc....

this was another reason i got into 3d printing.

I think you'll find that Shinsei Bank are just acting as an intermediary for the new owner..... rumours that this is none other than Scr8p's Shop.

:wink:

is that why Jason has been repeating "I will announce my love for Kyosho" on the chat section of the board?

If the recent rumour * about the Raider re-release is true, you'll have to work a bit harder..... those little buggers will need more than just fire.

Not to worry folks, if Kyosho ever gets into real strife, I'm sure Disney can bail them out.

Imagine the crossover potential........
