Steelers locker room Christmas Sale – Micro Heli

Today Nitro Mike (NitroClaus) and Michael Rooney stopped by the Steelers training facility located on Pittsburgh South Side to drop off more than a dozen micro helicopters.

Little did NitroMike (pictured above) and Mike R. know what a fun experience this would be in such a short time. …well, Mike R knew what to expect as they sold every last drop of what they had in inventory this day.

NitroMike was busy putting on demonstrations and allowing the players themselves to take test flights of these fun toys which will make great stocking stuffers!

Nothing like a dog fight with the micro helis!

The perfect stocking stuffer and the hottest R/C toy of the season is this Xtreme Micro Copter available at S.C.H. for only $39.99! Next week Nitro and Ron will deliver over three dozen more plus other R/C models such as the Blade CX-2, Traxxas REVO’s, Micro-T’s and more!
Nitro Mike can attest to this, as he cannot keep this stuff in stock! Next shipment is early next week!

Toys for Tots Holiday Race

SCH hosted the 2nd Annual Toys for Tots Race on Saturday, December 9th. US Marines and Santa Clause were among the participants at Steel City. This year is your chance to make a difference for the children around the Pittsburgh Metro area! SCH donated a race to all who brought in a toy of equal value for that day. Great food, fun and games were also present on this special day.

Happy Holidays!

FlyNight with S.C.H.

Every Tuesday night is FlyNight.  This particular night we had about a dozen flyers with their E-Flight CX-2′s, CP’s and Align T-REX electric Helicopters.  “This is the greatest” one flyer stated as he hovered while two other flyers were doing the same on the converted Ozite carpet track.
