You could try the toy stores. Souvenir's at Colaba or maybe those shops at Breach Candy. You're not going to find something as advanced as what's in your link though!

Hey, any idea who sells RC planes here? Maybe those guys would be able to assist in the "mature toys" area.

On a side note, I see the Toyota ad has had an effect on you

I had seen a RC plane at breach candy. you should probably take an aeromodelling course before you buy one though. theres an aeromodelling club that meets at the race course

There used to be India Hobby Center on Marine lines, but thats closed down i believe.

Your best bet as Khanak mentioned is to go over to the racecourse when the weather is better and the flying club is out and speak to some of the members.
Very helpful and friendly guys, and im sure they can help you out.

For RC planes I guess a guy in Dadar can help. There is a place called Hobby Planet. I bought quite a few 1:18 cars from him. He also stocks train sets and RC stuff.
