Very Bad Customer Service – I have spent a lot of money in Hurricane Hobbies and I will NEVER spend another penny there!!!. I don't know the owners name but I do know he is very fat and very unprofessional with his customers. When I purchased my RC there, it was a gas powered car and i was needing assistance in setting up, being my first Gas car i was very confused to say the least. He was very unsupported of me and my many questions and trips to the store to help me set it up. He even had told me that I was being ANOYYING!!!, Imagine a store owner telling his customer he was annoying. I spent close to $1,500 and to make matters worse, the Gas motor that was ordered for me was sold to me without a model # or serial # on the receipt and was packaged in an unmarked box, so I couldn't make a price comparison let alone know that what i was paying for is what i received.

He scammed me and was very rude.HE WILL NEVER SE ME AGAIN

WORST HOBBIE STORE & OWNERS IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – I WOULD NOT HAVE GIVEN THEM ANY STARS BUT I HAD TO, THEY DON'T DESERVE ANY! ALL THE BAD REVIEWS ARE 100% REAL AND TRUE! THE GOOD REVIEWS ARE THE OWNERS,FAMILY AND FRIENDS. NOT REAL "CUSTOMERS"!

THEY ARE OVER PRICED...LOOK ON EBAY FOR THE PROOF! THE STAFF(FAMILY OWNERS) HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT RC ITEMS AND HOW TO ANSWER QUESTIONS!THE STORE IS EMPTY ALL THE TIME! THE STORE IS DIRTY AND THE OWNERS AND FAMILY THAT RUN IT ARE ALSO DIRTY! RUSSELL(SON) IT A FAT SLOP THAT EATS JUNK ALL DAY! JERRY JR.(SON) IS A POT HEAD! THE REASON I KNOW THIS IS AFTER LOOSING MY PARTS! HE WAS OUTSIDE THE STORE SMOKING A JOINT AND OFFERED IT TO ME! MOM BOUGHT THESE CLOWNS A STORE! SHE AND JERRY SR. MUST BE VERY PROUD!!! WHITE TRASH FAMILY! THEY DO NOT KNOW HOW TO TREAT THE COUSTOMERS! THEY ARE UNPROFESSIONAL AS THEY COME AS WELL AS UNEDUCATED! THEY SHOULD NOT BE IN BUSINESS IF THEIR MOM WASN'T DUMPING MONEY INTO THE STORE IT WOULD HAVE BEEN GONE YEARS AGO! ALL I KNOW IS THEY ARE NOT GOING TO MAKE IT MUCH LONGER AND I HOPE THAT MORE PEOPLE LOOK ON HERE AND GET THE TRUTH ABOUT THIS PLACE BEFORE GOING TO THIS HELL HOLE! NO MATTER WHAT YOU NEED A NEW RC, WORK DONE,PARTS PAINT ETC. STAY WAY. IT WILL TAKE LONGER THEN THEY TELL YOU. THEY WILL NOT FIX IT. THEY WILL NOT CALL YOU WITH A UPDATE. THEY WILL LOOSE ANYTHING YOU GIVE THEM! THEY WILL TREAT YOU AS THOUGH YOU ARE THE ONE THAT DID SOMETHING WRONG. THEY WILL NOT PAINT ANYTHING EVEN GOOD, FORGET PERFECT! BOTTEM LINE THEY ARE A JOKE AND SHOULD BE OUT OF BUSINESS!!! I HOPE THAT THIS HELPS TO SHUT THESE CLOWNS DOWN. THEY SHOULD OPEN A CIRCUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just your average window looker here! – On my way home my kids wanted to go in the store, so we did. It was a very nice store with odds and ends everywhere you looked. I had a conversation with an older women who was very friendly. My children were instantly hooked on their slot car tracks and we were able to rent them for 15mins and a reasonable price. They had so much fun crashing the cars and watching then fly by. They can't wait to go back, it's a shame we don't live closer because i'd love to bring them back. This is a great little family store that i highly recommend!

Good, quick service – I bought a Avion plane from their shop and it was very nice, however it broke (not their fault). I went to get it repaired and they did it in a fashionable manner.

Impressed With The new location – Their new store is great and i'm loving their Hardbodies race for the slotcars. They have a real good crowd going on and the new store is very spacious. It's a pleasure being at the store and they have a family environment.

Has anyone else seen that adroable puppy they have? so cute! hahaa

The Bad Reviews Are TruthFul – Unfortunately, it appears the bad reviews are honest and like others have told you, the good reviews appear

written by the owners. Eveything I have read in the bad reviews is accurate and true. I do not need to repeat.

Just so you know however, if you are excited about getting into a hobby, you will be overcharged here. If you need work done, it may never get done. I have been verbally abused by EVERY MEMBER OF THIS FAMILY. Yes, every one, without any provocation other than, Can I have my car back, Please, I do not want to wait another six months. I am sorry to have to report this, but it is the truth, so help me God. I hope they clean up their act.

Better Luck.

Terrible!!!!! Refused my buisness – First off these guys have no idea what they are doing. Looking for a brushless RC car, wanted to do some shopping around. Asked them if the brushless cars had reverse. They said NO!! went to another shop, who were 10 times more helpful, they explained it had reverse, so I bought a car from that hobby shop. Used the car at the mall, broke an lower control arm. Figured I was in the area I would get a new part its on the way home. Russle saw that I got a car from somewhere else, Flipped out!!! refused to sell me a new part

Guy is a very very un-proffesional

Who cares, me and my friend would never go back to him again.

Highly Un-recommended

Look at his reviews, Terrible!!!

THE BEST HOBBY STORE ON LONG ISLAND – these guys were very helpful with building my model railroad,If they did'nt have it in stock Hurricane would order the product for me in a timely fashion.They even have a train guy there who is willing to make house calls to solve any problems I encountered.They have an old style hobby store, that you just cant find these days.Hurricane you guys have my business for life!The staff was freindly and helpfull.

Great staff – I have been there twice. Each time I was there I was treated well. The items I purchased were comparable in price to other shops on line. The staff seemed relaxed and knowledgeable. My questions were answered and service was fine. It seemed like a well stocked hobby shop and I enjoyed the "family" atmosphere.

Thank you Russell, Jerry Sr. Carol Jerry Jr. and Denise for helping our new hobby get off the ground. Literally. (Helicopter).

Thank You

Paul

HORRIBLE BUISNESS ETHICS – IGNORANT AND LAZY STAFF. MOM BOUGHT THESE SPEDS A BUSINESS SO THEY CAN SIT ON THIER LAZY ASSES. THEY STILL LIVE WITH MOM, HOW SAD IS THAT? THESE IDIOTS POSTED THIER OWN REVIEWS!!!! "CANT WAIT UNTIL YOU GET A TRACK"? BUSTED !!!! SHOWS THE STUPIDITY. MORE INTERESTED IN PLAYING ON THE COMPUTER AND STUFFING FOOD IN THIER MOUTHS THEN HELPING COSTUMERS. THEY MUST BE RICH BECAUSE THEY ALSO HAVE NO INTEREST IN SELLING ANYTHING. IGNORING COSTUMERS WHO ARE STANDING AT THE TILL WAITING FOR SERVICE. THIS WAS MY FIRST TIME IN THIS STORE AND I WILL NEVER RETURN! PATHETIC !!!!!!!!!!!!!! THESE MORONS SHOULD HAVE STAYED IN SCHOOL AND AND HAVE RECEIVED AN EDUCATION.
