any of you guys subscribe to it?..renewed my subscription in Dec. 2016 but haven't received any issues this year..when I go on their site it says "helipilotonline" is no longer connected to the magazine; and directs me to "maplegatemedia" website..I have emailed them twice about my subscription but got no response..

I do a great decending funnel!

I was just thinking the other day that it had been a long time since I received a new issue.

I was just thinking that the other day. I haven't received an issue in quite some time, I hope they'd at least inform their subscribers

I also choose not to renew a magazine to a company that is out of business. I just run that way.

Maplegate Media publisher of RC Heli Pilot (and Fly RC) closed up.

Icon RC Media bought the names to continue them in digital format, web and social media with no immediate plans to publish.

Maplegate is responsible for the unfulfilled sub's but it appears they are not responding to queries.

Looks like we are back to the original:
AMA Model Aviation.

It may not be "The Best", but after 30+ years, it has always been in my mailbox at the beginning of every month.
As a matter of fact, mine came in today.

thanks for the info BH

I figured somebody knew the specifics of the magazines demise..I really liked the mag.; I don't feel too bad cause it wasn't all that expensive and as I said before the international coverage and great pics of what goes on across the pond was very interesting! I was surprised that there were so few responses..I guess maybe not too many heli pilots were subscribing; I guess the days of printed publications are coming to an end.

I wrote a sincere letter to the editor of Maplegate media two years ago indicating that unless they changed their format, increased quality content and ceased with the endless coverage of generic drones, that they were on the path to closing up shop. I never wanted a reply, nor did I receive one. Needless to say, I'm sad but glad that they are no longer publishing garbage.

That said, I really enjoy having periodicals delivered in addition to digital formats. I'm quite sad that quality publications are getting harder to find.

Publications seem to indicate a general health and interest of the hobby. I know the surrounding 5 clubs in a 120 mile radius of me are shrinking in size and participation of club events.
