I’m just wondering the level of satisfaction with the limited selection of heli magazines out there for us. I subscribe to Rotory Modeler and every once in a while will purchase a copy Model Helicopter World and I can’t find Model Helicopter Technique on a regular basis.

I find Rotory Modeler too much “bling” as magazine goes. I think I’d prefer less bling and more substantive articles about the hobby, e.g. more “how to” “hands on” maybe even dedicated sections to beginners, intermediate and experienced and maybe even 3D/FAI pilots. MHT started down this path but I don’t think they have the subscription base to support them at least that’s how I read it. From my experience they’ve had problems staying on a regular publishing schedule. Model Helicopter World seems to have pretty good articles at times but it seems to me that some of the equipment they review as “new” has been in the states for a while.

I’m not really knocking any of these magazines I’m just wishing out loud that they offered a bit more. What do you think the “perfect” magazine for heli pilots would look like?

I pretty much agree with you on the magazines you mentioned,
MHT, I subscribe to is OK, but has been better and as an all around magazine I have to give my vote to "Model Helicopter World".
The perfect magazine would be a combination of all of the above
but you can't please all the people all the time.

Rotorworld availability

JHT,

Please take a look at Rotorworld magazine - I can't promise you'll find exactly what you want, but your message suggests you've not given us a try.

From Issue 8 (February 2004) we're hitting the States with distribution, so if you've got a localish hobby store that sells helis, you should be able to get it. However, if you'd like to see the magazine before that, Wise Owl can take orders in the US. Just visit http://www.rotorworld.co.uk , and follow the link through from the 'Buy' page to the Wise Owl website.

Regards

John Clark
