Well, I finally heard from RCM Plans, They said they were "Updateing" (?) the plans and they would ship in the next few days. They did apologise for the dely. My order status is now"processing and shipping" Looks like ," A month and ten days for delivery " was right on the mark.

Thanks for all the input, guys. It's eased the pain of waiting.

Hi, I'm in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada. I have to wait at least 4-5 weeks for plans from RCM plans. Give it another two weeks.

I buy a lot of plans from them and the word slow always comes to mine but they always get here.

Thanks for the encouragement. There's always a reason as to why we are made to wait.

You'll get them...

It took 6 weeks for them to pull my Dirty Birdy plans. They emailed me as soon as they were printed. It took three days to get to me from that point.

The plans are worth the wait, but it is a frustrating wait.

Hang in there!

Brian

Default RE: RCM Plans

In the "Questions and Answers" topic, I started a thread a while ago making my complaints about RCM plans service. After a more carefull search, I discovered this thread.
Now, all my questions found an answer. It seems that they are very slow. The short story with my case is that I ordered the Gentle Lady plans 12 days ago and my order is still "processing and shipping", with no reply to a message I sent them.
And if you guys say that you received your orders after one month and 10 days in US, then I can imagine how long it will take to receive them in Greece...!

I received some plans on Tuesday that I ordered from the UK from the old RCM&E catalog, a prop jet Bae Hawk, on October 14th. 2-1/2" weeks not too bad.

Default RE: RCM Plans

Just to clarify things, Jim was referring to the English magazine RCME now called RC Model Aeroplane in USA. This English magazine is still going strong and usually has a free pull out plan each month. All the RCME plans and also Radio Modeller, Scale Aicraft, X List plans and the old Aeromodeller plans are still available from [link]http:[link]http://www.myhobbystore.co.uk[/link]]MyHobbyStore.co.uk in England. Note that most English plans dont come with the original article unless you order it and pay extra. But there is a large number of great plans still available.

( Jim did you get the article I sent on the Hawk? )

If you paid by Credit Card you should complain to the Card company if you have not received goods - this should liven them up!

I have read on RCU that RCM plans is now run by an older lady..
Funny thing is, I ordered two sets of plans before xmas and got them in about 3 weeks later.. then I got another email just the other day saying they sent out my order again..

anybody need a Spacewalker and cub plan as I might have two pretty soon..

I've ordered two sets in the last three months, They both came in a suitable amount of time..

I wonder what's going on with them.

Their company is Air Age now.

Surely Air Age is the Model Airplane News plans service, not RCM ? Or has something changed?

I have not seen anything else which suggests Air Age sell RCM plans! They are rivals surely?

Default RE: issues with rcm plans

HOLD YOUR HORSES MEN!
RCM Plans Servce and AIR AGE are two seperate entities. NOT related other than they both offer plans.
RCM has had some trouble (and still does) in fulfilling orders on a timely basis.
I've been subject to their "lateness" asmany of you have. I was able to speak with the woman who indeed owns the RCM Plans service, and she offered the same explainations for being so slow that we have readhere and in other threads. However, she processed my order and I had them within a few days of my talking with her.
I think she is just overloaded, and cannot keep up with the business of RCM Plans. Life gets in the way, and order fulfillment suffers.
SHE does not charge your Visa. It is an AUTOMATED SYSTEM via internet webpage hosting that charges your Visa. She, like any other person who sells on internet, gets notice of the order, and then has to fill it. The Visa part is done even before she knows it.

I don't know the woman, nor am I a friend. I am just trying to keep people from slandering another person based on mis-truths and anger.
Yes, I'll order from RCM Plans again, and likely very soon.

Just wanted to get that point across.
