We don’t just sell R/C – We LIVE R/C.

P1 Hobbies was founded by veteran R/C enthusiasts Joe Nolasco and Blake Cannon. Joe has been working on websites since the late 90’s and this year (2015) will mark his 30th year of R/C involvement! He first started in R/C at the age of 4 when his uncle gave him a “Lobo” R/C car for Christmas. From that moment on he was hooked and has never looked back. Joe has raced nearly every type of R/C car or truck that can be raced. Everything from Kyosho Mini-Z’s in a buddy’s garage to HPI Baja’s out on the big track! Joe’s experience is not just limited to surface vehicles, he’s also flown R/C Airplanes for the past 15+ years. You name it, he’s flown it! From .40 sized warbirds all the way up to 120″ 150cc gasoline powered Aerobats and even “3D” style “Foamies”! One of his favorite flying things to do is chill out at his buddy Ray’s house and hover a Foamie over the bushes. This doesn’t always work out for the plane so well, but it’s always entertaining! Blake Cannon has been racing Radio Controlled Vehicles for well over a decade. When Blake isn’t racing he can be found at any local slope soaring site “flying” (we use this term loosely 😛 ) unpowered thermal gliders.
