Default RE: modelsport magazine video

I found out some more info about Modelsport Magazine. John Beech moved from North Carolina to Florida, and just after he got all moved in one of those huge Florida hurricanes hit and totally wiped out his building that stored all his equipment including video cameras and editing equipment, models and supplies, etc.

At the same time, Dubro, one of his major sponsors, started Inside RC television show. (Which as we all know, flopped.)

John Beech started an RC forum website (which as it turns out RC Universe is remarkably patterned after). Don't know what happened there but maybe after being wiped out by the hurricane he did not have the means to continue the website.

Starting up Modelsport Magazine again would take a huge investment in cash and time and he's not sure he wants to do it all over again.
