Default Have you received your AMA "BONUS?"

WOW! Things must be going great for "Model Aviation" and they obviously felt obligated to share the pot with the membership.

We get a "Special Issue" of the mag. The annual regular mag. usually diverted to NATS has been replaced by a Special Issue and our regular magazine will come on schedule according to the Editor on page 7.

IMO, the NATS is a special event, and definitely ranks top billing in AMA's required chores. There are so many things involved in the NATs and most regular recreational modelers never have the opportunity to experience. The NATs magazine does provide an opportunity to get a glimpse of so many other avenues and directions that one can, if one so chooses, to investigate and experiment with.

I have to admit that I really enjoy the NATs issue each year. OTOH if the mag. staff is to publish a Special Issue, why not keep it to the NATS and leave all the regular magazine stuff out of it? A Special Issue with regular columns in it seems to be a waste of resources. Therefore I have questions about the necessity and REAL reasons for the extra magazine. [:-]

However two items that caught my eye were the advertisements of Dave Mathews and Tony Stillman. I hope they help. At least they were not 'toooo' late!

I for one didn't like the fact that the AMA chooses to spend my money on a full color catalog of AMA trinkets. The title of the magazine is model aviation not QVC.

Tony did have an ad in last month's mag. Its listed in the ad index as an ad for Radio South, but his personal ad says nothing about radio south. The "special edition" was the first time I've seen any ad for DM other than here.

Don't despair, that so called magazine will show up just like hemroids always do. I for one wish they would just get rid of it. If it can't support itself then why publish it at all.-Mike
