What's it like?

A question for those of you lucky enough to get your copy:

What's it like?
How do you rate it?
Marks out of 10?
Any negatives?

How does it compare to MHW?

Well, what does everyone think about the newest bait and switch ploy of this magazine. I guess everyone got an email about the postage and what your options are. Let me be the first to say that I liked the content of the first issue but I have a REAL sour taste in my mouth about everything else connected to RotorWorld. Not sure what I'll do but I know that I WILL NOT renew next year.

Copy of the emai from RotorWorld

'Free postage' was something I was very keen on maintaining for a long
time with Rotorworld magazine. However, to provide a post-free service
meant that we had to make despatches using surface mail.

I was told by my local Post Office that surface mail would take up to
four weeks. as it turned out, six weeks after despatch, some magazines
have still not reached their destinations, with most of the problems
relating to the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the
Far East.

I do not believe that many subscribers will want to wait for up to
EIGHT weeks for their magazines. But, that is now what the Post Office
are telling me. So, I have decided to:

a). Increase the price of a new overseas subscription to £26.50, which
includes AIRMAIL postage.
b). Offer existing subscribers the opportunity to upgrade to an AIRMAIL
service if they wish.

I am sure that many of you, for example those on the European mainland,
received your magazines within a reasonable time-frame. However, a good
number of you did not. of course, you can choose not to upgrade,
whereupon I shall continue to post your magazines by surface mail. If
you feel agrieved about the delivery times but do not wish to upgrade,
you can also request a refund (to the value of five issues, i.e. £15)
by replying to this mail. Refunds will be made using Paypal.

I have the first issue and am very impressed. Well worth the cost even with the air mail charge!

$43.00 a year seems a little steep for just 6 issues. Thats about three gallons of fuel. It may be easier and cheaper for them to contract with local printers to print and mail out the issues but maybe not. I am sure there are plenty of printers in the USA that would provide this service. Might be something for Rotorworld to check into to save their clients some money.

I will have to wait a while to see if everyone contiues to like it before paying $7.16 an issue. I would like to know the content/ads ratio, of course I am sure this will change over the next couple of years.

whats the gripe

The gripe is that I paid the asking price and now they want more. Thats a piss poor way of doing things. Next time you buy something for a set price and when you go and pick it up they UP the price for it, is that ok with you? If so I have a bunch of things to sell you.

Sorry maybe I'm miss understanding the email. can you correct me if I have gotten it wrong, but it sounds like he's offering to ship it faster if you want him to, as an option and apologizing for the post office being slow with the option to cancel your subscription if this still is not satisfactory

Hi Guys,

Indeed, the upgrade is optional. Nobody with an existing subscription is obliged (how could you be?) to upgrade, and I've offered to give a refund to anybody who's not happy about either the delivery times or the extra money for airmail. As for 'baiting' theories, trust me guys I'm not that clever! I'll leave that marketing stuff to larger publishing companies who employ guys to do that sort of thing.

I did enquire at the Post Office how long surface mail would take to the States etc. I was told four weeks. This was incorrect. I sneer in the direction of that particular member of staff at Sevennoaks P.O. whenever I go in! (Only kidding - he's actually quite a nice guy, even though he let me down with duff information).

This is the first business I've ever run. I'll learn from my mistakes - and free postage overseas, although well intentioned, was clearly one of them.

Issue two is coming along nicely. Should be wrapped up and ready to print next week.

re. printing in the US, that's actually a very good idea. The only problem is that I couldn't afford (literally) the risk at this stage, and don't have the resources to build up a distribution network of shops to match such a print run yet. I need to walk before I can run...

Later guys. Thanks for your support.

Oh, forgot to say...

Someone back down the line of this thread from the UK asked about his own postage. No charges in the UK, and that'll continue long into the future because it only costs 69p!
