In 1971, founder Bruce Holecek started Tower Hobbies with little more than a passion for RC and $800 savings. Now, 50 years later, hobbyists around the world come to us every day for the best products from their favorite brands, at competitive prices and backed with expert support — enjoying outstanding service at every step, done the way only Tower Hobbies can.

Throughout our long and unique history, Tower Hobbies has strived to make your shopping experience as easy and enjoyable as possible. Though it might seem quaint now, we were the first in the industry to provide our customers with toll-free “800” phone order lines. We launched our award-winning website in 1995, right on the cutting edge of online marketing.

Most importantly, we’ve always remained committed to a "customer comes first" approach in everything we do. When Horizon Hobby took ownership of Tower Hobbies in 2018, we were able to bring you an unprecedented lineup of best-selling brands — becoming a one-stop shop for items from Axial®, ARRMA®, E-flite®, Losi®, Spektrum®, RealFlight® and many, many more of the finest, most popular hobby manufacturers.

Tower Hobbies would like to thank you for your continued support. Keep your eyes on throughout 2021 as we celebrate our customers and our Golden Anniversary with new specials each month. We look forward to helping you enjoy your hobby to the fullest for a long time to come, with excellence in service, selection, and support that has been 50 years in the making.

Axial® Spotlight

Axial Racing is RC for the adventuring lifestyle. We’re about being with friends, enjoying the outdoors, and exploring the extraordinary bond that exists between drivers and their rigs. Axial products evoke the same passion that fuels the world of full-scale off-roading — that irresistible urge to see how far you can go even after the trail ends.

The Axial team designs kits and RTRs that are especially popular with the custom builders, scale enthusiasts, and “tinkerers” of the RC hobby. In form and function, we strive to match real rigs as closely as possible. Many scale details are licensed from the top names in full-size 4x4s for the most authentic experience. Chassis, suspensions, transmissions, wheels and tires…they’re all engineered for the durability, clearance, and maneuvering capabilities you’ll need to conquer any course.

Each year we also host Axialfest™, a family-friendly gathering of Axial enthusiasts that draws hundreds of participants from all over the world to share their love of scale adventure.
