Skipmillermodels.com WARNING

Be careful doing business with this company. I ordered a couple of things from them, never got an email verification, P.O. or receipt. Though, they had no problem immediately charging my CC.

They gae me the run around in email and on the phone. On the phone, it sounded like a one-man operation. They stopped returning my calls and emails when I asked for a refund.

A name like RC Critic and only 5 posts, all critical of SMM doesn't make sense. Not saying it ain't true but...

I'm not sure who this person is, but they're definitely out to smear SMM, as this is the 3rd thread I've seen in as many forum channels where they are blasting them. Can't say I've had a lot of dealings with SMM other than some email questions and small parts, but its all been prompt and professional. I can also understand the "joys" of being a distributor, as I myself was one for a few years, but sometimes its really out of your control, or even best estimate, when you're manufacturer is going to deliver. Moulds fail, people get sick, shipments get lost in transit, all part of the fun. Anyway, if you post one negative review of place, that's normal/appropriate (sometimes), but when you go all over the forum trying to deter business, that's an agenda.

Just saying.

Carry on.

Skip, Cody and crew are above reproach. I have placed quite a few orders with them and have always received professional, courteous treatment. In my experience, they have always been ready and willing to resolve any problem whether mine or theirs.

I fear that something doesn't quite smell right here!

I've dealt with SMM and they gave me great service. I ordered two special servo mounts for some Airtronics wing servos for an Xplorer 3800. I had asked for two mounts and I was quoted a price, I thought for a pair.
Well it turned out the price they quoted me was for each servo frame. But they honored the lower price they had quoted me on the phone, and sent me two anyway..

This thread is FAKE people!!!

I have done thousands of dollars of business with Skip and crew and not an issue or problem. Matter of fact, Skip personally has given me breaks and promised me to not divulge that I save hundreds off the listed site price!

This thread should be closed and deleted. I mean come on , there is no way Skip and refute or defend against this claim!

Lets see, don't deal with Pizza Hut. I ordered a pizza and I found a human finger in the crust!!! Yep, its just like that!
