Rocketvision / Recovery Technologies Parachutes on ROL Auction

Post by David Falkne » Tue, 20 Mar 2001 09:50:35



Now that some of the dust has cleared from the death of Rocketvision, I have
seen some of the parachutes that were made by us for the Pegasus kits (36"
thin mil in various colors) appearing on various auctions.

Recovery Technologies produced these parachutes for Rocketvision in good
faith, and was never paid for any of them. We were left unpaid for the 100
parachutes they ordered, and were led to believe that we would MAYBE receive
payment for them by February 1st.

We still have heard nothing from Bill Maness or anyone representing
Rocketvision. We were told by Bill at the time of their closure that all of
the parachutes had been sold with kits and that there were none that could
be returned. It now seems that this was not true from what I have learned
from other sources.

Recovery Technologies will still honor our standard warranty regarding
workmanship on these parachutes, but if anyone from the former Rocketvision
company is still out there, will we ever see any payment, or are we just out
of luck?

Why post something like this here? Why not contact Bill Maness and ask
him directly? IMO, what you did was in very bad taste and I for one will
not purchase anything from your company in the future.

I think he was just disclosing, not threatening.

His tone, to me, sounds more like frustration from lack of
contact/information, along with a plea for some information from the
company.

Hey Christopher,
Looks like you really don't know what you're talking about.
Bill Maness won't answer his phone and owes his creditors lots of
money.
Are you starting to feel David's frustration now?
Maness stiffed David and you think his message is in poor taste.
It looks like David is honoring his workmanship on parachutes, he
never received payment for. Sounds like an honorable guy to me
As for you never buying from Recovery Technologies, I think that there
lucky not to have to deal with  you.  Next time save your stupid
comments for something you have direct knowledge about. Your message
was the one in poor taste, and maybe you should apologize to David and
his company.

Let's see.  He was preparing for growth and instead he went out of
business.  I guess nobody has ever overextended a business before.

I for one like what Bill Manness attempted to do.  In some cases the
vendors are taking a known risk when dealing with small companies on
cerdit.

Write it off on your taxes and please, please, let me buy the parachute
product on a cash in advance basis.

Thanks.

Jerry

There used to be "back room deals" and now every aspect of every
transaction is posted to the internet.

I declare that a bad thing.
