"Our Incredible Volunteers" - The Heart of DarBro Our success at DarBro RC Model Shop wouldn’t be possible without the incredible support and dedication of our volunteers. They have been instrumental in repairing RC cars, donating essential materials, and investing their valuable time to establish and enhance our RC track. Their tireless efforts and enthusiasm have been vital in making Darbro the vibrant and thriving community it is today. We are deeply thankful for their unwavering commitment and energy. Our Journey: DarBro's journey began when we, Darrin, Bronwen, and Daniel, driven by a shared passion for technology, initially ventured into the world of computers. However, as the landscape of the IT industry evolved, so did our vision. Recognising the growing demand for RC models and the need for a community-focused hub, we made the leap into the world of RC planes and cars. But as fate would have it, just as we were gaining momentum, the COVID-19 pandemic struck, presenting us with unforeseen challenges. Forced to relocate due to the demolition of our premises, we saw an opportunity to not only rebuild but to reinvent ourselves. Embracing the spirit of resilience, we decided to shift our focus entirely to all things RC, doubling down on our commitment to providing enthusiasts with top-tier products and unparalleled service. And thus, DarBro RC Model Shop and track evolved. Community at Our Core: At DarBro, we're more than just a shop – we're a community. Our passion for RC extends beyond the products we sell; it's about fostering connections, sharing knowledge, and creating unforgettable experiences. That's why we're proud to announce the upcoming opening of our community track for electric RC cars, where enthusiasts can come together to race, learn, and celebrate their love for RC. From humble beginnings to soaring heights, Darbro is committed to being your ultimate destination for all things RC. Whether you're a seasoned enthusiast or just dipping your toes into the world of remote-controlled fun, we invite you to join us on this thrilling journey.
