Ummm there is a car lot that has RC helicopters in a shop at the back. This is located on Srinakarin road.. and I can get more info for you tomorrow. I may have a card.
There is a shop in Seacon.. (maybe a couple) on the movie theatre end of the mall, on the same floor where there are some really cute black lacy type clothing for women by the escalator.
Lastly China town. If I am not mistaken... Yarrowat soi 35 and the parallel side is Soi 7, Charoen Krung. Better to approach from the Charoen Krung side. There is an excellent shop hidden away as it is sort of under the bridge??but right alongside charoen krung. They also have loads of remote controlled cars and they are the cheapest place out of all the three listed locations. That is also without barganing..
I MAY have a card in thai for the last option.. but then I need to look .. for it..

Go to penang market in Klong Teoy you will have to look around abit but there is one shop there that sells Taimya (its hidden under the bridge)and other brands alot cheaper than anywhere else I have found and service great the guy loves his models,I got a remote car ,upgraded motor ,steel ball beerings,liquid shocks the works and mega-cheap brand new.
Problem is its so fast I cant use it anywhere.
Also there are models for sale everywhere in China town in Sapanlek they sell everything you can think of from boats to helicopters most of the stuff is cheap Chinese stuff so I dont know how good it is but they also have shops that sell original brand names.

The official Tamiya shop is on RCA (Royal City Avenue) I think its off Petburi at the Rama 9 end. Ask a taxi to take you to RCA. When you get on to RCA road, the shop areas are in lettered bloacks, ABCD etc. The Tamiya shop is in Block B i think. If you are heading towards the Rama 9 end of RCA, its on the right. Quite visible from a taxi. Look for the Tamiya star. Sorry for being hazy with the directions but when I go there I know where it is.
It has loads of RC stuff from cars to tanks to choppers and all the usual plastic kits. No other branded stuff sold there though.

Sorry, can't find the card. But my directions on how to get to the store off of Charoen Krung are dead on.

There is a RC shop at the intersection (3 way) between Suthep Road and Siri Mangalachan in CM.
The CM expats club has a RC group - I don't know anything about it but if you PM MiltonBradley he will be able to help you with the contact information to the group.

Siam Tamiya is in RCA plaza.
I had a R/C tank that shot airsoft pellets that I got in Sapan lek. Kyosho ones might be a bit harder to find.
Airsoft? For gear there's a shop that sells cheap tactical vests, etc in JJ mall. You can buy Chinese AEG's in Chinatown, Seacon, or the field on the motorway. They sell Japanese ones in Chinatown, Ladprao soi 101, and the field in Sukhumvit soi 62.
If you're looking for cheap helicopters go for a Chinese-made one in sapan lek and modify the hel_l out of it with a carbon frame and high-torque motor and li-polymer battery.
Your best bet is to go take a quick trip to hong kong. Last time I went I got a tamiya Willys Buggy original, TG10 Mk.1, and the Mk.1 Clod Buster. Prices are very close to the japanese ones and the more you buy the cheaper it gets. If you want to import an airsoft gun from there you MUST take the entire thing apart and have it assembled here or it will be seized by customs when you get here.

There are plenty of RC shops in Thailand (and airsoft, with a few fairly big shooting ranges). You just have to know where to look for them. Like suggested before, buy an RC magazine (these are RC Flying, RC Action, and RC Racing) of your choice and ask a Thai person to translate the contact information in the ads.
Some places which have websites:
www.olek.co.th - Helicopters, buggies, Thunder Tiger distributor, in Ramintra
www.fronthobbyrc.com - Planes, helis, in Ramintra
www.concepttoy-rcmodel.com cheaper toys, cars, in Ladprao (next to the Ramintra expressway)
www.helimod.com align distributor, located near Rama3
www.thailandhobby.com servos, batteries, motors
www.hobbythai.com lots of things, located at Seacon
keng-rc.com cheaper toys, in Chinatown
I myself am into nitro (glow) helis and trucks and electric planes.
