    Well this sucks and is certainly something you don't like hearing - Hobbico is filing for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy.

    Hobbico distributes over 150 brands and 30 proprietary brands that include Arrma, Axial, Flyzon, Futaba, Great Planes, Dynamite, and many more.

    Yes "Hobbico" includes Tower and many other brands specific to the name Hobbico.....

    But they are just filing chapter 11 which will allow them time to either drop things costing them too much money or restructure their finances to better suit their needs, I think they have been overextending and taking on several recent brands that are not turning out as they hoped....
