Kevin is our fearless leader.  He has been with Uncle Don's Hobbies since 2005.  Kevin is an expert in electronics.  Want to know what battery, what charger, what to do to make it go - stop on in for a chat.  He also knows a little something about Trains.  N, HO, O, G scale?  He will help you select the train that is best for your area and needs.  Want a layout designed.  Let him know your layout size and desired scale and he will design it with your budget and design in mind.

His friends call him Famous. Rob is a world class RC Helicopter Pilot.  FP, CP, CCPM, Idle Up, Electric, Gas?  He will help you get in the air.  Rob offers lessons for the beginner to the advanced.  Had a case of dumb thumbs (or was it the radio?) and crashed, he can repair, help you with replacement parts or suggest.  Rob is the kind of guy you want over for dinner.  He is friendly and will do the dishes when its over.  Did we mention he can fly airplanes like you see on YouTube?  If flying is your thing, then you and Rob have something in common

Chad is a fan of fishing.  When not flying his quad copter or handmade airplanes, he is on the back end of a fishing poles going for a new personal record.  Believe him when he says, "that was the one that got away...., from someone else"  Patient, friendly, with a beard worthy of a newbie on Duck Dynasty,  he is our scary Teddy Bear and Quad expert.

Ricardo aka Ricky Ricardo is always calling across the shop - "Hey Lucy, you got some splaining to do".  Since Ricardo is bilingual in Spanish and English, half the time we do not know what he is saying.  For the Spanish speaking folks out there, you get to understand the other half. 
Si usted puede leer esto, usted ahora sabe Ricardo habla con fluidez el español.
Ricardo is also fluent in ground RC and specializes in gas and glow fuel power.  We think that makes him trilingual but none of us are really sure what that means.  You can find Ricardo working hard on the weekends and at the track.

We have missed a car specialist at Uncle Don's now for long time and the wait is over.  If he looks intense in his picture, it is not because he is, it is because when we took his picture we told him to give us an intense look.  You be the judge  If you put your mouse on his picture, you will see what he is like the rest of the time.  Jon is a diehard racer with a typical helpful Uncle Don's attitude.  Come on in and see the expert in action.

Keiffer is a lot smarter than he looks which is pretty smart.  When you bring consignments to Uncle Don's, chances are they will pass through his hands.  Keiffer is responsible for all of Uncle Don's Hobbies online consignment sales.  He is an expert at online photography, the all important wording on eBay and super safe shipping.  Let him do the work for you, thrill your spouse when that pile of "honey I was keeping it because it is collectible" is replaced by a big fat check.  Win win.

What do you say to this picture?  Vern is funny (looking) and kind, sweet and loveable, happy and helpful and smart.  Working weekends and filling in as others get tired, Vern's boundless energy is an inspiration to us all.  Did we mention he is a great pilot and knows how to stay out of jail.  He makes us happy to be at the shop.  Come in, say hi, and find out why.

Vern says he did not want us to use this picture, we think he did.

: Why can't I email Vern? (you can)
Answer: We don't think he knows how to read or type.  Just in case, feel free to click on his picture and we will interpret and tell him what it is all about.

Sherwin is an electric car nut.  So why he is near a gas powered 45mph, 4wd beast?   Answer:  He speaks 7 languages, knows all about Airsoft and if it has 4 wheels he can fix it.  So, we decided he can stand where he wants in the shop.  Keep in mind, even though he speaks 7 languages, we don't claim he speaks one at a time.  Most of the time we can't understand a word he says, but we are sure if you want to win a race or shoot straight, you can get the info one way or another (we will help).

What can we say, we wanted a woman's touch.  Mona certainly qualifies.  She is in charge of all things inventory.  See the empty peg above her head, she is gonna get'er done!  We look forward to having someone to blame when we run out of paper towels.  In a word, Awesome!  

Click and email Mona's picture to drop her a note.

Yes, Mona's is the only profile with a pink box.
