Default As usual ama behind times


Been in the news awhile back, but just showed up again.. You'd think MA would have been on the ball an getting this out. I guess they don't have anybody there with enough getup an go to keep up to date on stuff like this

What does the AMA have to do with Algae Batteries?

Since when is the AMA tasked with bringing new technologies to light?

WOW, Toolman, you have dug very deeply and gone very far afield into esoteric information to arrive at something else to confirm your belief that the AMA is not worthy of your membership!

Certainly the most lame excuse to get "On the AMA" that I have ever seen, Toolman! I will say this however; YOU DO have "enough getup an go" to post worthless diatribes!

To all the RCU brain trust above that can't read, the ama owns MA Magazine, an thats who I said was behind dropping the ball. Its in big capital letters in my original post. Since MA is hell bent on promoting elec flight now, you would think they would be watching this type technology, just like they would on a new plane design making it's way thru the pipe...



Oh yeah, Mode one, your showing your smarts as usual. You really need to find something to do....hahaha

Model Aviation/The Academy of Model Aviation, you mean there isn't a link between the two? And here all the time, I thought Model Aviation was the publication of the AMA!

Your original post is stupid, I have no idea if you are! However, it's always the case when stupid is what stupid does, they start in with the insults!

Happy Thanksgiving Ronnie!

Well let's see, the earliest date I can find on this new battery technology is Sept 15: http://www.rsc.org/chemistryworld/Ne...r/15090902.asp

Even if MA had someone submit an article for submission on this new technology, it would most likely not come out in print until Dec or Jan time frame. Plus, I think it might be a little premature to think that the RC community will be using these style batteries anytime soon.

If MA was a scientific magazine, I would think the OP has made a good point. But since it is not, I'm sure this thread has something to do with this post here: http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/fb.asp?m=9281391

Perhaps the OP needed something to do over the holidays?

Frank, I don't suppose you'd think a battery that was paper thin would be handy in a model plane that depends on its lightweight to be able to fly? NRA's mag on ocassion talks of new metal technology for guns to let the readers know whats headed their way in the near future. I remember years ago when Hot Rod magazine talked of new engine advancements that would be headed to the consumers way in a year or two.

You was doing just fine over on RCG, did they run out of back pats for you over there?

Hey Ronnie,

More than likely, you would see this in MA if/when someone actually builds something around this technology, and submits an article, or it is seen at an event and reported on.
Wait a minute, you've written magazine articles before, right? Jump on it. You'll be famous. And give us something here to really chew on.

Yes, I do. I think down the road there certainly might be a use in RC for this technology, but to bag on MA for not "breaking the news" on this seems a little harsh when you know it takes time for things to come to print. Don't you think?

Perhaps you can write an article about this and submit it to MA?

804, It's just something that is worth mentioning in a short article in the mag to be on the lookout for. It gets people to thinking about how they could build a little sturdier plane an still be low enough weight to fly good with a liteweight batt such as this.
A product is worthless if someone doesn't have someplace to use it, an elec planes would be a prime example of a use for this technology.
When fiber optics first appeared, there we're people thinking ahead to what else it could be used for besides pretty little lites they could sell in stores.
Thats why I say that MA could do a short article on it an plant the seed in the builders mind.

In another note....Sony has developed a batt that generates elect. from sugar also....

I'm going to add on to what DavidAgar has said in his warning. For those that feel they can't discuss an issue without slinging personal insults or attacks I would recommend that they not post here. Because if I see any more of them here in this thread (or any others in this forum) I'm going to start putting people in "time out" with a little MS.  The choice is entirely up to you, but do know that the outcome will be assured.

If you want to keep up with the times, here is a very interesting site. http://www.sciencedaily.com/

If you want to see something in MA, maybe they will accept an article from you about it. I've submitted five and had two published.

MA paid better than the various aquarium magazines I have written for, and they pay on acceptance, rather than on publication. A good thing! One of my articles, on painting fake metallic letters and numbers, was lost in the office for several years. If you go to the website, you probably can find out what to do to get published. It used to be a matter of submitting an idea and having it accepted or rejected by the editorial board, then writing the article and submitting it.

Many scientific journals have page charges; so much a page for publishing your article. One writes these costs into grant applications.

If you follow Science Daily Magazine, you will see that there are almost daily announcements of "breakthroughs" like that in discussion. Which, if any, will make it to the market is a good question. I do think you better use your lipos to the max as they will soon be obsolete.

I don't mind getting some $ for an article, I just don't want to work for free... If that is the case (free) I have a lot of things around the house I can do for the wife....haha

Since when is it the AMA's job to keep us informed of new technologies that may or may not have some application to modeling? They'd need a whole separate publication for that alone.

If and when it becomes applicable I'm sure they'll write about it.

I think the criticism is unfair, and unwarranted.
