A Bandito - Finally

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!

A couple of years ago, when RCM was going belly-up and not saying anything about it; I had sent in an order to recieve some construction plans. Well, like so many others, the funds I had sent were accepted, and I never got anything in return. In other words, I was ripped-off.

Like anybody else who was dealing with RCM at that time, I was angry. I sent off a few nasty e-mails, got back some promises that proved to be lies, and in the end, gave up and accepted the financial loss.

I never forgot the plan set's I wanted though, and gave it another try after I heard RCM was still offering plans for sale. I ordered the plan's I wanted, gave out my CC number, and waited to be ripped off again; man, am I a sucker!

Guess what. I mentioned in the order that I had not recieved the original order. The next thing I know, I get a special delivery envelope in the mail from RCM. They sent me the plans for free.

I have a forgiving soul, and indeed, I forgive RCM for the original mess. After all, can we not all go belly-up if the circumstances are right.

From now on, I will order plans from RCM, and feel safe in doing so. Now I have my "Bandito" plans, finally, after 2 years. Thankyou RCM. You have a wonderful collection of plans available to the hobbyist.

I've spent most of my money and time on model airplanes, mean women, and beer. All the rest was just a waste.

Good for you!

I'd like to add that they also offer support should you happen to lose the build instructions. They emailed them to me in PDF format. I would never had been able to get it done without their help.

It must be a good feeling to have received your plans, to finally get what you paid for! And it's good to be able to put this situation behind you now, instead of harbouring the anger and hurt of having been "ripped off!"

Anger & Hurt + Free plans = forgiveness! Kind of like a sore that won't go away UNTIL you get the right medicine for it!

Glad it all worked out for you! Enjoy building your new plane!
