What is

Nothing is better than rooting through RC parts in a hobby shop!!

We hope we have designed an online hobby shop where you can do just that! was created to showcase our RC Sailboat products.  We carry items from the best brands in RC Sailing.  We are especially proud of the Joysway DF65 and DF95 kits and parts of which we are the Canadian Distributor!

About Us - In March 1994 we opened our retail hobby shop, Leading Edge Hobbies, in Kingston, Ontario.  We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly for 25 years but decided that we would start a new adventure as an online only store!  We closed down the Leading Edge Hobbies retail storefront in June of 2019 and created Leading Edge Hobbies Online!!

Leading Edge Hobbies Online has become the "umbrella name" for, and   We also have an eBay Store and regularly post items on Kijiji.  We have a presence on Facebook and Twitter as well.  Our present site will soon become a landing site to direct you to one of our new Leading Edge Hobbies Online websites.  These are exciting times here so enjoy and stay tuned for more to come!

Ordering - Our goal, when we created, was to make it as easy as possible to order products.

We have defined our products under four categories:  1.  Sailboat Kits  2.  Sailboat Parts  3.  Accessories and 4.  Specials.

Finally, if you have a part number or a good description of what you want, try our powerful SEARCH bar.  The SEARCH function works great to find parts associated with a brand.  If all else fails feel free to call at 613-389-4878 (Toll Free 866-389-4878) or send us an email at

Shipping (Getting Your Goodies!!) -  Getting your stuff with couldn't be easier!  You have three main options.
