Radical R/C - Missing in Action?

Does anyone know what has happened to Dave Thacker at Radical R/C Batteries? I faxed in an order a week ago and asked for an email confirmation of receipt of the order but there has just been silence. Tried calling but no answer and did send one email as I didn't want to be a pest. However, if he is out of business I'd like to know so I can order elsewhere.

As I understand it, the RC business is a second job for Dave. I've had the same thing happen, but then received the order the next day. However, something could have happened, I sure hope not.

Please tell me he is not out of business. Im
expecting 2 battery packs in the mail from him. I ordered last Monday. I understand he is very busy. He did reply to my e-mails rather quickly. Does he post on RCWATCH. I have heard alot of good things about him and his batteries.

I've bought packs from him...i suspect he had family things to attend to...it was a holiday.

Dave IS a very busy man. He is also a valuable resource to this community so don't give up on him. I think he is currently going through a growth spurt, I'm sure because of his excellent products.

I believe it's hard for him to keep up with his email and get the products out the door so it wouldn't surprise me if he doesn't respond to all his email.

Hang in there.

Just sent my first order to Radical R/C on 6/26 and received shipment on 6/30. Great prices and quick service. I'll be ordering again before the summer is over.
