Default What's with Airage Plans?

Hi, what is it with Airage AKA Model Airplane News plans service these days?

I went on-line and I only see a very small subset of plans. There doesn't appear to be an option to special order plans.

I am interested in the "Encore Mambo", a MAN remake of the 48" span Sterling Mambo. A google search brings up:

http://www.rcstore.com/rs/general/de...006A&catego=PL

but clicking it returns a not found error.

A kit is available at:

http://www.hobbyhangar.com/test/new.htm

for $60 including shipping. I might just opt for this, because Airage plans service seems to be asking a fortune for plans. I figure given the going prices, they would want about $20 anyway. The $60 includes shipping. $40 buys me the kit, however I was thinking of scratch building.

Go figure, enough ranting already. A favourite past time plans service I used to purchase from as early as 1966, which used to be reasonable appears ready to belly up.

Laters, HPT

Default Is anyone at the helm with Model Air Plane News?

An update: I guess at this point, MAN is really going down the tubes. I had posted a message to their webmaster as indicated in their rcstore.com web page. Following is what I posted:

Hi,

Do you know when the plans section of the RCStore will be fixed? I click on the link "Plans" from:

http://www.rcstore.com/ME2/Default.asp

I get:

http://www.rcstore.com/ME2/%3Cdirmod...s&ntier1=Plans

"The page cannot be found. The page you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable."

"HTTP Error 404 - File or directory not found. Internet Information Services (IIS)"

Also, when I was able to get into the plans section, "Encore Mambo", an remake of the Sterling Mambo trainer of the early 1960s, MAN October 2006 issue I think, does not show up.

I want to purchase this plan.
I got the following reply:

Hi. This is the qmail-send program at yahoo.com. I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses. This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

<webmaster@rcstore.com>: 65.171.32.19 does not like recipient. Remote host said: 550 not local host rcstore.com, not a gateway Giving up on 65.171.32.19.
I guess MAN doesn't want mine or anyone else's business.

Sincerely, HPT
