HPI Philippines - Creating Fun Since 1986

The history of HPI or Hobby Products International actually started in a small office in Costa Mesa, California. Originally founded as an export firm by Tatsuro Watanabe and a partner in 1986, HPI's life began by producing the first line of electric RC motors that was known as the Uno series. During its launch, the sales for Uno series was so encouraging that HPI opened a small office in Japan in the same year. Not only that, the Uno motor series even won a World Championship title in 1987. Such victory was being taken as a sign that HPI can now compete with bigger rivals in the market. This prompted HPI to release the first car kit, the Super F1.

During the same period, HPI has hired two of the most influential RC car designers in an effort to boost the creativity of HPI's design team. From Kyosho, chief engineer Akira Kogawa was responsible for a much of its notable race winning cars such as the Optima and Ultima as well as his Super Star line of wheels that remained popular today. Not only that, he also designed Rush, Micro and Baja kits that have remained popular with RC hobbyists and enthusiasts alike. This reflected HPI's growing commitment and enthusiasm in transforming itself from being an accessories company to being one of the most prolific RC car design and manufacturing companies in the world.

As an enterprising pioneer, HPI has been at the forefront of introducing innovation. As of now, HPI features several milestones that have broken new records and made headlines in the history of RC racing.

  • The RS4 series - One of the very first electric touring car racers
  • The Nitro RS4 - Kickstarted the nitro touring car movement
  • The Micro RS4 - Created the 1/18th scale category
  • The Savage - Boosted the 1/8th scale monster truck hype
  • The Baja 5B - Redefined the large scale off-road category
  • HB Cyclone - IFMAR World Champion touring car (2006, Andy Moore, Italy)
  • HB D8 - IFMAR World Champion 1/8th buggy (2008, Atsushi Hara, USA)
  • The Savage XS - The fastest Mini Monster Truck in the world

How HPI Philippines Builds Your Adventure

Detailed Designs HPI is committed in creating detailed designs by applying the precise replication method. This method allows HPI to create highly detailed and realistic models that are quite impressive and stunning. Although it is very challenging in making use of the data of the full-sized vehicle and take the shape of a model as true to scale as possible, HPI believes in building such designs because fielding a highly detailed model and bringing it into racing is truly amazing sight to behold. Even if you do not bring it to race, the model itself is impressive to be displayed proudly in your desks, cabinets or others. When a kid is excited to receive a new toy car, the same can be said for HPI models as hobbyists and racing enthusiasts alike are eager to test HPI models.

High Quality Marking Print HPI believes in using tampo printing method for 95% of the body markings such as sponsor logos, photos and gradation for its products in order to keep the colors bright and lasting for many years. Not only that, the high quality decals made by Cartograf in Italy are used in some of HPI products and this actually enhances the visual quality of these models. Creating visually appealing look, these beautiful decals make HPI models look awesome and beautiful. Moreover, the decals are tough and long-lasting so you do not need to worry about them.
