Probuild Shadow We stock only accessories of which we would use on our own models. A full line of YS engines are held along with possibly the largest stock of spares in Europe, as well as servicing & rebuilding service. There is a full building service available but this is heavily over-subscribed and early ordering is well advised. Many pilots book a building slot rather than a particular model, with the arrangements finalised three months prior to the start of the model being built.
All kits probuild stocks are ones only we have tested & would fly our selves, we stock a full range of ARTF kits in-stock and available for next day or same day collection, We have been in business for over 35 years & it shows with our trained expert eye only stocking only the best models from the very start of your modelling career in trainers & sport flyers right up to large scale models from 50cc all the way up to 800cc.
