Rc-helicopter-small Welcome to the site of Western New York's newest hobby shop. Jerry Rucker, an R/C plane enthusiast, along with Clarance Ragland, an accomplished hobby shop veteran, have teamed up to bring you R&L Hobbies.

We're happy to help you with your remote controlled hobby. We're open Monday to Friday 9am until 6pm, and Saturdays 9am to Noon. We can help you choose a model and type that fits your budget, tell you about some of the popular places to pilot your new vehicle, and even train you on its use. Having trouble making some repairs? Bring it to our shop and we can help you get back on the track or in the air.

Rc-plane-transparent-small R&L Hobbies is the new home of "Fly before you Buy." This program allows you to try out flying one of our training planes without having to buy your own plane first. We teach flyers with little to no experience how to fly using the innovative and effective "Ragland Training Technique." This unique and proven technique does away with the typical "buddy box" and allows you to learn by doing. You'll join the many others that have learned how to fly more easily than anyone ever thought possible. Everyone will takeoff and land during their very first flying experience, with many performing their first solo flight on the first day.

So please, stop by and see us. We'd love to meet anybody with a love for the R/C hobby. But if you can't make it in person, you can always email us your questions or thoughts at or or get in touch via our website
