I have since contacted FLY RC twice and also the distribution company, and I have still not seen this magazine. I am going to give it one more try, then I will just forget it, and demand my subscription fee back. I know you could wait to pay for it till you got the first subscription, but my wife was writing out the bills and just sent the check.

I wonder what is taking them so long to get these copies out. I contacted the distributor the beginning of september, and they said that thay would send out another copy, and I still have not seen that one either.

Circulation Fulfillment: Cambey & West (845)267-3490
Contact: Melissa Rinaldi

I wonder why when you receive a magazine like Model Aviation, and you get a damaged copy, missing last 20 pages, and send one e-mail, you get a new copy send to to you and delivered in the mail within 3 days, in a Priority envelope, but after several contacts to this company, I still have not received the magazine at all.

Please remember that we're just starting up -- bumps in the road are inevitable. Our latest was that the polybag machine at the printing plant was down, delaying the supplemental mailing of issue #1 till yesterday (9/15/03). We polybag our magazines because we want our customers to receive them in good condition. Although delivery by the Post Office is hard to predict, the magazines should arrive by the end of next week. Issue #2 is scheduled to mail by Monday (9/22/03) with a similar two week delivery window. We thank everyone for their patience and for their interest in FLY RC.

Ned, will the next (and future) issues be mostly electric oriented, or is it going to be more of a mix next time?

We aim for a rough 50/50 mix between electric and engine power, but the exact percentage will vary issue to issue. We plan to have more airplane reviews (of all types) than other magazines currently do.

I have to say that as long as it isn't going to be mostly electric oriented, I'll probably go ahead and keep my subscription. I thought it was a pretty good magazine. Kinda like the r/c car one they put out as well.

I agree, electrics are neat, but Id rather see more to the gas/glow and maybe a couple turbine info parts. As long as electric stays minority Im in.

Got mine today,

Got a chance to go through some of it, The engine tips and tune-up tips was a welcome addition. The main coverage was to the electric side but it had good coverage, Not the sales ads but the actual reviews and suggestions. The hoover article and the 4*40 conversion, the battery pack construction etc.

IMO its a keeper, allthough two thirds were manfacturer product reviews. I think they did a good job of filling in with their own articles.

After waiting several weeks, I got my first issue of the mag - no insert plans included. It is slick and probably better than MAN (in my opinion) but much too much directed to the electric folks - not my interest. A couple of things directed to the wet people but in general not of interest.

I've not received the invoice yet - but will mark it cancel when it arrives.

I received my first two issues yesterday. Overall Very impressed. The second issue seems to have a better split between Gas and electric. Love the mag sofar.

Got mine today and decided to give it a one year trial. We'll see if it proves worth a renewal.

If feedback posted here will help direct this magazine to something that I will look forward to getting, I agree with the opinions about too much electric coverage.

I don't think this will help, but I did get mine yesterday. I forgot to check the mail until late so I didn't have much time but to open it and thumb through it. One item that I have yet to see is the invoice. Does it come separately? It sounds from this thread that it comes in with the mag. It appears that I have not received it yet.

BTW: Gerryy,
I read and enjoy MAN and understand that you have limited space. I like MAN...don't care who knows it. I have read the magazine on and off since I can remember.

I have seen MAN and RCMagazine and there nice looking magazines, but for content and good reviews I prefer RCReport to tell me the scoop.

What all magazines should do though is make the plane they review fly what its suppose to in that a 3d plane should be tried out for 3d and how it performs.

Magazines spend 90% of the time building/reviewing the kit rather then spending only a portion of it building and another portion flying. After all, most people (ESPECIALLY now with the ARFS) spend there time at the field flying. If a plane builds nice thats always a + but if it can't fly up to whats its intended for then what good does a review do you?
