Our Story

R/C Hobby Nook is a cherished, family-owned business led by DJ Rangar, who has called Johnston County home since 1981. DJ's lifelong passion for model trains has evolved into a deep love for all things remote control, fostering a vibrant community of enthusiasts. Although R/C Hobby Nook no longer stocks model trains, the spirit of exploration and innovation remains at its core.​

DJ fondly recalls the early days, sharing countless hours with family and friends, introducing his children and others to the thrill of his Traxxas Rustler. What started as a modest hobby quickly exploded into a thriving full-time business, fueled by DJ's unwavering dedication and the community’s growing interest.​

Over the years, R/C Hobby Nook has expanded its horizons, continually enhancing its knowledge and offerings within the RC universe. The shop is now a hub of excitement, providing top-notch products, expert advice, and fun-filled community events to hobbyists of all ages and skill levels. DJ, his son, Ranvir, and his wife, local realtor, Preeti, are committed to spreading the same joy and spark, ensuring every customer experiences the thrill of remote-control adventures.​

Our goal at R/C Hobby Nook is to create a beacon of community spirit and shared enthusiasm, where the love for remote control hobbies can continue to inspire and unite. We hope to see you soon!
