TELEMASTER THE STORY OF THE MODEL PLANE

Hobby Express has been in business for 50 years. The company started under the name Hobby Lobby International, Inc. in 1964. Fifty years later, we have a brand new name and website, but the same core values and commitment to bringing customers the greatest hobby products around!

The first Telemaster - Neal Davis 1-23-2014A big part of this company’s history is our Telemaster model airplanes and kits. We’ve always said, “Nothing flies like a Telemaster,” and that’s because it’s true! The Telemaster has played a pivotal role in our past and will certainly continue to play a pivotal role in our future. For now, we want to take a look back at this fan favorite model airplane and share a bit more about its long and acclaimed history.

It’s believed that the first Telemaster was designed back in 1967 or so by acclaimed German model designer Karl-Heinz Denzin, who was employed by Alexander Engel, the model producer. At first, there were just three sizes: standard, senior and junior. Each size brought about fun for the owners and each were gas-powered. In 1973, Joseph Bridi simplified the original Telemaster design for kits that are sold here at Hobby Express today. This redesign included the same outlines and plans, but used aluminum sheet gear in some kits and also had a steerable tail wheel. Other changes were made to the wing, using strip ailerons and stingers on top and bottom wings instead of sheeting. 1973 was also the year in which former owner of Hobby Lobby, Jim Martin, obtained the rights to the Telemaster and the popularity of the plane took off both in the U.S. and overseas soon after.

Throughout the years there have been standard 70 inch wingspan Telemasters, to the 96 inch senior and even a 12 foot version still available today. Here’s a look at Hobby Express employee Neal Davis carrying one of the first ever Telemasters. You can see it’s quite large, especially for its time and is finished with a striking stripe of blue. Most model planes in the 1960’s were smaller than six feet long. The Telemasters are also quite lightweight, but they are designed to carry varying sizes of loads.

Telemasters employ a classic look with great curvature, some with the feel of a military plane. The design of the Telemaster has really withstood the test of time, but one major change throughout the years was the way it was powered. The model pictured is gas powered. Years after the Telemaster launched , the Hobby Lobby Electric Motor was introduced. Brushless motor technology has revolutionized the RC arena and Hobby Express is proud to be at the forefront of the movement. We were first to enter electric flight with the Telemaster and have continued to be on the leading edge of clean, electric power. Many hobbyists have applauded the way the Telemaster flies with its electric motor.

Telemasters in flight are extremely smooth and very steady. Hobby connoisseurs will be impressed by the ease of us in the air. Watching a Telemaster land is something exciting to see; the flaperons allow the plane to appear to hover over the ground before it lands. Flying and landing the Telemaster is something that is fairly simple when compared to other model airplanes on the market, so novice to experienced hobbyists can enjoy them. Assembly is also straightforward and can be accomplished with ease. While the Telemaster is not known to be an aerobatic plane (though it can handle a loop or two), its other attributes make it quite appealing. The Telemaster has been known to be a great option for aerial photography and can tug light loads.

When it comes to price, the Telemaster has been a great value in all of its years. In its early years, the Telemasters were priced as individual parts. These days, various kit sizes ranging in price from 50 dollars to more than one-thousand dollars for the 12 foot model.

Telemaster 12 Foot Mark ClevelandTelemasters are now available in several shapes and sizes, with each boasting the ability to bring users a new level of ease and precision. The 12 foot Telemaster ARF is our largest, while our newest product, the Mini Telemaster Kit V2 is our smallest with a wingspan of 45”. This kit provides an easy to build RC model airplane that includes one laser cut model, full size plans, photo-illustrated instructions, bent wire main landing gear, tail wheel and all hardware.

For hobby enthusiasts, the Telemaster models have become a favorite, classic model plane option. Hundreds of modelers have had their first successful flying experience with a Telemaster and many beginners have successfully flown a Telemaster 40 without assistance. Those looking for a smooth flying plane will enjoy the beauty and classic look of the Telemaster.

Hobby Express Celebrates Golden Anniversary, Looks Back at 50 Years in Business

Celebrating 50 YearsBrentwood, Tenn. (January 14, 2014)— Hobby Express (formerly hobby-lobby.com, now at hobbyexpress.com), a hobby store that sells radio control airplanes, helicopters, cars, boats and other hobby products in-store, catalog and online is celebrating 50 years of business in 2014.

formerly Hobby Lobby International, the company recently rebranded and is looking forward to continued product innovation in 2014

In its first 50 years of business as Hobby Lobby International, Inc., Hobby Express manufactured and sold thousands of hobby products on the leading edge of innovation in hobby technology. Hobby Express was first to enter electric flight, when gas and go engines were the standard.

“At Hobby Express, we’re proud of our reputation for service and reliability,” said Mark A. Cleveland, CEO and owner of Hobby Express. “As we celebrate our golden anniversary, we’re happy to reflect on our long history of success while looking ahead to bold new products that will bring consumers even more joy for years to come.”

Hobby Express is wrapping up a year of both growth and change. In late 2013, the company rebranded to become Hobby Express, leaving its original name, Hobby Lobby International, Inc., behind in order to avoid brand confusion with a popular craft store of the same name. In addition, the company named Kurt Cleveland as its new president. He previously served as chief information officer for Hobby Express.

Looking ahead to 2014, Hobby Express will continue providing innovative and reliable hobby products to share the fun with consumers. The priority is expanding and developing some of the company’s top selling products in its first 50 years including:

Telemaster: A model airplane used for training and fun, the first Telemaster was built around 1967. Since its inception, the easy to fly RC plane has been made available in multiple different sizes (including a Mini, 6 foot and 12 foot Giant) and used for training, UAVs and aerial photography.

eRC Airplanes: With multiple price points and styles, eRC airplanes have been longtime favorites of consumers, no matter the skill level.

eRC Controllers: eRC offers incredible value with its high performance programmable brushless speed controllers for eRC airplanes.

Pilot 1: This is the finest golden age scale aircraft on the market. Pilot 1 planes capture the look and excitement of classic planes and combine race looks with sport flyer handling that is easy to build and fly.

 

“We have spent the last 50 years helping families and friends make memories centered around our products,” says Kurt Cleveland, president of Hobby Express. “Our customers have been so amazingly positive on our brand change.  This is truly humbling and makes us even more excited for more innovation in the next 50.”
