What exactly do you mean by "a little thin"?

I've been a subscriber to RCHelimag since issue 3. I find it very informative, full of reviews, how-toos, etc. Great balance between nitro and electric.

Might just be a optical/physical illusion. First issue was 100 pages, since then we've only added pages and have never "reduced" pages. Issues 1-3 100 pages
Issues 4-7 108 pages
Issues 7-9 116 pages
Issue 10 124 pages

I write for the magazine and have been involved with the performance automotive magazine segment as well. Compaired to the competition, RC Heli Magazine is the most contemporary in it's presentation.

I'm looking forward to the monthly issues and hoping to help Mike and the rest of the staff to make this magazine a benchmark for the hobby segment. I'd like this magazine to become a top-shelf, progressive and trend setting publication that keeps the other magazines in the past.

I'm a subscriber as well, and I LOVE the mag!! Of course we all would like to see a monthly magazine based on our favorite hobby that has 500 pages, but for my money I think you are doing a great job.

Like willy says less adds! 75% tech & 25% adds would be great not 50/50!

Girls and magazines are always a touchy subject. Car magazines always run into reader complaints. A lot of people like girls with their hot rods and then there are those with a more conservative view who think it's low class and degrading.

I'm not sure how it would go over with the heli group, but sex appeal does boost sales. If it does happen I pray that we don't use the unlcassy import style so-called models. They're so low class it's a joke. After having been to several SEMA and NOPI events, it's practically like going to a stripper drive-in.

Hot Rod magazine usually has some excellent model photography, just my opinion. I just don't want low class to be associated with our hobby.

The ultimate goal is to attract new people to the hobby and continue to interest and inform the existing crowd.

Well "Bulldogs," I remember talking to guys down at OCHC about this about 6 months ago maybe and OCHC was going to be the first club featured, then after talking Damion about it he asked us not to for a few different reasons. "In the Club" will be a regular feature in the magazine soon, as planned. I've read in your posts here that you're not tying to bash us, but I sure do get that sense. Which is fine if you don't like the magazine, just don't say you're not.

I've been flying helicopters for over 20 years so a consider myself somewhat experienced. That being said, I really enjoy RC Heli Mag and want to thank Mike and all his support staff and writers for producing a GREAT magazine. I guess you just can't please everybody can you Mike? I have subscribed to the magazine since it's first issue and have always found something in the magazine I didn't know before.

Life is what you choose to make of it.

Hi Damian,
Chill out bother, few points; 1. I edited my post because I originally thought you were someone else, yes, someone named jon. Then I though to myself, "no isn't jon" hense the edit. I had an idea it might be you but couldn't imagine you would ask that kind of question, known about my next point. That explains the little in the post incase it was you (Damian). 2. I had a two page-spread ready to go introducing "in the club" the column I told you about, your club was going to be the one that would launch the column. I told YOU about it and you said you didn't want that kind of exposure. If I remember correctly it had something to do with AMA affiliation (could be wrong). 3. My getting the sense of "bashing" stems from your first post, headline nice and negative, lots of !!!, next post "BUT any smaller they should just staple the 5 pages and call it a FLYER and not a MAG ..." Oh gee, that's no a bash right? Then more people chime in, the majority positive. What's the next post? Is it "hey, those are the numbers and the page count, I guess I was wrong" No, instead it's "Id like to see a different heli club every month pics of the club and some info. I was told RC heli mag was going to start doing this almost a year ago.. Still NOTHING...." Huge emphasis on "NOTHING."

Call me crazy, but looks like a "bash" to me. And that's fine. You're free to bash away, I'm a big boy also and can take it. Just don't say your not doing it with one breath and do it with the next, bash that is.

If you think I'm a tool, oh well. I still think you're a cool guy and I like the club. I'm pretty disapointed that you took such offense to my observation, for a big guy like yourself I figured you were a bit thicker skinned than that.

Mike im not going to involve OCHC ... OCHC has nothing to do with my 1st post.. I feel the MAG IS THIN of good info.. My personal opinion id like to see a CLUB page...

I will say
When i invited RC HELI MAG to OCHCs event in April the only thing i did not want you to do is tell were exactly OCHC flys... But the rest was free game.. Lets face it when you and Arron came out to OCHCs big event in April you had no intention on doing a story..Arron came out with a small digital camera that fit in his pocket and i think he never even used it . I could be wrong .... Not one of you guys asked any questions from OCHC members.. So i figured there would be no story... Thats oky ... The oppertunity was there in April and you lead me on to think there would be a story....

I would still like to see a club page.....

Im done !!! THis is not about OCHC

Hey, that's fair. Your opinion, point taken. I really didn't see what I said to be negative. No big deal. This thread has been informative and in fact has spawned two really positive private conversations that I think will make for a better magazine. And that's really my point of posting. Damian, I'll PM you on the OCHC matter.

msingles, and everyone else, thanks for the kind words and suggestions.

Goodnight all.
