Rc groups forums will not admit or correct problems of vendor slander. They also allow cyber bullying. They do not return emails, phone calls, or even snail mail. This our experience with matters addressed to Jim Bourke of RC Groups.

They are a division of Knife Edge Software Real flight.

We do not think RC Groups forums are a safe place for teens especially, and even most adults.

Update: You have to get the IP address of the poster making the slander and sue them. That's how its normally done. RC groups must give you the IP address. Most people don't sue the site owner. It will never stop until these people get sued who post.

RC Groups is way worse than you speak.
Let your imagination run wild and you might get close.

Same that supporters of extreme left wing supporters have invaded and injured this great hobby of ours.
Hard to believe that Great Planes has anything to do with this bunch that also include real flight simulators.

There are better places to do business with, for our country and its future

Jim Bourke, RCGroups and Knife Edge Software ...(RCGroups owned by Jim Bourke and Knife Edge Software where Jim is President of the company)... use strong arm business tactics. They refuse to communicate with anyone having an issue. Jim Bourke has made unfounded claims against me (and others) on both RCGroups and KnifeEdge Forums and then when confronted with his slander and inappropriate comments he deliberately blocks you from his websites ... even other sites owned and/or managed by Jim Bourke that you may never have visited! Jim and his websites/businesses should not be supported by the RC Industry and it's followers.

Sad to say, but I have to agree with some of the negative sentiment in here. Jim Bourke pretends to run an above-board "clean" WebSite.
Yet his so-called "Moderators" can run amok e.g. deleting posts, handing out infraction points, gagging posters, booting posters from online chats. The list is amost endless of what these 'worker bees' do in the name of keeping RC Groups true to their psuedo set of so-called "VALUES".
While Bourke himself sits there and bathes in his own pretentious light.

The site has rapidly gone downhill over the last couple of years. People are getting fed-up with the morons that 'moderate' the site. Thought-Nazis who shouldn't be given the power to squash an Ant, let alone be in charge of a site that has the number of members that RG Groups does. Jim Bourke DOES NOT CARE - else he would surely research the plethora of complaints lodged against heavy-handed Moderators. From experience, his standard answer when the integrity of one of his highly trusted moderators is called into questions is "We'll look into it" And - you guessed it - NOTHING happens when the shoe is on the other foot.

I agree that RC Groups has become a cesspool of shills and cyberbullies who are protected by Jim Bourke when it suits his purpose. The moderators simply follow the moral and ethical standards set forth by the owner which are none. I agree with the statement that RC Groups is not a safe site for kids or teens. They claim to be family friendly yet they are anything but family friendly. They are not even member friendly unless you are bullying someone who exposes the theivery of a paying sponsor. RC Groups has become a site of predators and that's perfectly OK with management as long as the money keeps on comming in.

As for Real Flight, that is nothing more than an overpriced and overhyped toy. I don't know of a single RC beginner who ever learned anything of value using that software since it doesn't reflect real world flying in any way shape or form.

That place is full of rancid moderators (several are ex mods) who love to blind side report and bully people.
Sure has a growing list of people frustrated with the site moderation etc.

All the negative comments posted are true. Jim B is not a 'good guy'. Him and Jim T are both steaming piles of crap. They play silly games and let a few of their buddies get away with murder.

Yes, that RCGroups is a joke. It is full of thin-skinned cry babies, including Jim T..
I was a member for a few years and then started hanging out in the Life, Universe area where I spent some time debating non-rc subjects that I am interested in. Then someone decided they didn't agree with me and went back through 6 months worth of my posts and reported every single one they could. I got suspended for a few days and didn't really care or argue the matter. Then came back and found that every time I posted something that someone didn't agree with it would get reported, even though there were posts from other members equally "troll-like", I got reported and they didn't and there was nothing I could do. Eventually the points got me suspended again, so I created another account which got me banned. So I created more accounts which I now use to just go in and cause problems, because I can.

can not be found at the site listed by easytiger above... i.e., his second attempt at a forum after being banned everywhere, and failing at his first attempt.

How can any site that is based on a lie (i.e., who the guy in charge is hiding his identity) even hope to suggest they represent the 'truth' in anything? It's a joke and a half.

If you are tired of the BS that is found at the home of the jims, and don't want to get involved with the trash of easytiger's second site, come visit: www.air-rc.com

Actual discussion of model aircraft. Light banter and a good group of friendly people. You know, sort of what the hobby is all about.

Posted by Dad: "Same that supporters of extreme left wing supporters have invaded and injured this great hobby of ours." That's why I told them to stuff it back in '07. Circa 2005/2006 a wealthy left wing brit who goes by Vintage1 posted a thinly veiled call for the assasination of then President George W. Bush. Jim bourke and his "crack" team of moderators and "supermoderators" did NOTHINTG until Mr. Bourke received a call from the Secret Service. Mr. Bourke likes to pass himself off as a Christian. In my opinion, Mr. Bourke's Christianity is as phony as a three dollar bill.

Jim Bourke is the Devil posted: "Him and Jim T are both steaming piles of crap." I love it! Jim Bourke made Jim T. Graham (AKA Billy Hell) the "Supermoderator" because Jim T. can't hold a real job. And, he's a pompous, egotistical jerk as well.

Of course, even a blind squirrel can occasionally find a nut. After several years of trolling, ad hominem attacks, and other abuses, they finally banned easytiger. Jim B. got that one right.

I have tried to reason with the moderators and Jim on RC groups ...everything negative posted on this site concerning Rc groups and bullying has proven to be true.

I went to the Toledo Show this year and th RC Groups booth was definitely the trailer park of the show. They all looked like they had just been released from prison on parole. You'd think Jim Bourke would have enough sense to send a professional looking crew to an important trade show like Toledo, but I guess that bunch of losers is the best he has. I would have snapped a picture, but had to look away to keep from vomiting.

Has anyone checked out the story about Dan Savage and the outragously mean, intolerant and disrespectul speach that he gave recently at a high school journalism conference? Mr. Savage who is the founder of "It Gets Better" a anti-bullying group during his speach went of on Christians and those studends who were offended by his language. As those students left he derided them and called them names.

Google the story, it would be funny if it weren't so scary how the left is using false issues to attack this country from every angle.

Even sadder is the lousy phoney baloney appology given to the high school studends by the events organisers.
