RCM Plans Service still operating or has everything shut down.

Very true. He would also have earned a lot of disrespect from his "fellow" aviators with that kind of attitude.

Sufficient reason in my opinion to believe him to be a fraud and liar!

Maybe he is just a sad and lonely middelaged geezer... Afraid to become an old one. Either that or he has experienced the WORST club in the world, made up of 100+ senior citizens each with their own advice on securing control clevises. This has evidently made him mentally unstable and he now believes that he is a decorated pilot now flying ARF's.
ARF ARF!

Watch how you treat the old farts, sonny. With any luck, you might get to be one too some day.

Actually, Tower Hobbies carries a couple of hundred different kits, including some Tower Hobbies brand kits. You can find kits from Great Planes (naturally), SIG, Lanier, Midwest Products Co., Top Flight, Carl Goldberg, and House of Balsa all at Tower Hobbies.
Love Tower or hate Tower, they aren't the Anti-Christ of the R/C airplane hobby. Even kit builders might find something to their liking at

I think we are still safe in that regard.
Akimoto is a young dude, judging by his lack of regard for others and his classism.

I was hoping you got the sarcasm Ed :D I appreciate help from people with experience. This was meant as a jab at Mrs Akimoto.

What I meant by that is even if you can't find something you like at Tower, that doesn't mean there aren't other sources a little off the beaten path.

I'm kidding you. But I did read it wrong, so to speak.

I ordered 4 plans from RCM on October 5 and received them on the 24th -- all were the newer blackline prints, not the older blueline. RCM has been running a 4 for 3 promotion -- order at least 4 plans the get the least expensive plan for free. Although the promotion was to have expired in August, I ordered by phone and asked if it were still being honored -- at the time, it was, but you must ask for it. So, I ordered 4 and paid for 3.

I ordered a set of plans at the end of November of last year and still have not seen them. January is almost over. I finally got hold of some woman over there after attempting to call for over two weeks multiple times a day. than on the 8th 9th and 10th I called every hour and finally got a pickup. The woman was shocked that the plans were not sent yet and that she will send them out the same day. Well that was on the 10th, it is now the 22nd and still no plans. They are in business alright, they'l take your money but not send you anything in return.:(:censored::mad::mad: I used to order a lot from them and had the plans in a week or so. Yes they are around but must be going under bigtime.

I haven't looked in here for many moons. Now that I have I see verbatim th e thread from RCG. Sheesh!
Regarding the attitude that RCM plans don't matter: For no other reason th an historical record it should matter to us all. While there are several i ndividuals and the AMA who have archived many plans, they can't cover them all, especially if they're still copyrighted. Pulling copyrighted plans of f the market diminishes our choices as well as model aviation history.
Regarding building as opposed to buying: Those who build have a hobby; tho se who fly have a sport. Those who do both have both. Most builders openl y welcome new materials and techniques. Balsa-only types forget that there was a time when models were constructed of bamboo and rice paper, or cardb oard and pine during WWII. And don't forget that many a model has proven a concept for a full-scale airplane. You can't often do that with pre-made sporting goods!
However you build, if you let the curiosity - the "what if?" spirit die, yo u diminish what it is to be human. That's the true cost of losing modeling as a hobby.
