What's the latest info on RCM Plans?

I'm in need of plans for my Olympic 650 as I crunched the wing this weekend. Not repairable. Half the wing center section is still intact and I guess I could build a new center section using that, but I'd rather use a plan to do it. So, I called RCM Plans on both numbers they list on their site. The (877) number comes back being disconnected and the (541) number goes to some type of loud, fast busy. I emailed them and haven't heard back as yet. At least it didn't bounce. the web site has a 2014 date on the bottom, so it looks current. I'm not sending any money until I talk to a human.

Does anyone have any idea what is going on there?

TIA,

Mike

From what I have read on here they have not been reliable as of late. I would try to get them off the classified section or something as it sounds like if you order stuff they aren't likely to send it anyway.

I just received this reply from RCM Plans:

Thank you for your interest in RCM Plans.

Our system has been down for quite some time. We were locked out of our entire system.  We were unable to access the admin portion of the website, emails (which we lost most of), orders, etc. We are trying to resolve the problems with our hosting company.  We hope to have all problems resolved by sometime in March.  The email portion of the website restarted on 02/14/14.

RCM Plans is very recently under new management and we are seeing to fixing the problems and also to refunding anyone who has not yet received their money back.  If someone chooses to receive the product that they ordered, we will also help them with this.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter.



Only time will tell.

The lockout probably occurred because the former owners didn't pay the hosting company their website fees.

This looks like good news. There are a couple of plans that interest me however I wasn't about to place an order with what I have been reading. I would still want to talk on the phone first though.

I contacted them in January and received an email similar to those above claiming everything would be rectified and orders filled sometime in March. Keep an eye out here and also in the balsa builders and scratch builders forums.

It looks like we only have about 10 days to go before we find out if RCM Plans is for real or feeding us a line of bull.
