I always got a reply back the next day. I would think he is busy attending
fun flys throughout the US during the summer.

Bob Parkinson...


Bob is great in relying back, when i was going through nightmare with F15 i have, he helped me out to his best, he even called me at different time to help me out in difficulities with that F15...I am sure he will reply back to you, he usualy dosen't post on RCC but he is on RCU quite frequiently...
I am sure he will return your emails or messages once he gets them.....Like Dave /Casset said he could be in US at this time of the year...

Check out some other web sites in the US over the last 3 years regarding BP. You're REALLY LUCKY to have gotten anything that you have. I have read threads in the past where he hasn't delivered ANYTHING to paying customers. Not a good thing!
And no, I haven't ordered anything from him or ever will!
Just my 2C.
no such thing as too fast!

I guess I'm lucky that way.But it took a lot of emails and phone calls(wich he never got back to me with) to get what I did get.I will give him a couple more weeks to get back to me then I will try to reverse my payment from the old plastic card. It Is a shame to see people do business this way ,it's not a cheap hobby to start with as well we rely on other people for there experience and help to make this hobby enjoyable.

A buddy of mine ordered an F18 and Regal Eagle from him over 5 years ago, still no aircraft. Paid via money order as well so he can't go back through his credit card company. How that guy is still in business I have no idea.

I haven't seen him post on RCU more than a small handful of times. As for being in the US, even if he is, that is not an excuse to not reply to emails, if you want to run a business and you're going to be away, at least set up an auto responder, or make sure to have internet access while you're gone!

My experience was the opposite. I have a new Regal Eagle kit. I live close to Bob and was able to go and pick it up however. I found him to be friendly, willing to help and always available to my numerous calls. He was in the process of looking for and buying a new home at that time and that may offer some sort of explanation for your difficulty. I hope it works out to your satisfaction. In my opinion Bob P. is good people......
