Rotory Modeler Closing its doors.
Hello All,

Mike Mas's Rotory Modeler Magazine is closing its doors after 19 years of outstanding work with the Rotory Modeler Magazine.

Besides being the first to fly Switchless Inverted and developing the basic setup methods that we use today Mike has been relentless in promoting our helicopter progress. He has done this by Doing.

The best wishes to Mike and Linda! Mike won't get out of helicopters, as he says it is in his Blood.

Lets all wish him Well!

Nice read.

I hate to see any business close.

I must have missed half the goings-on.

Last I heard Mike Mas sold the business. Didn't know he bought it back.

Definitely a legend in the hobby as was Walt Schoonard and Robert Gorham.
Thanks, TheWoodCrafter

Yes James Wang is still Around
Hello All,

Yes James Wang is still around, he wrote a review for our Blitz Avro 90 which is in the last issue Jan/Feb 2011. He did a very nice job as usual. I a sure Neal at Blitz will be happy.

James will be writing reviews ( Blitz Avro 90 and other helicopters ) for other magazines ( he just does too good a job not to be writing for someone.

I don't think Mike is going away anytime soon, there is just too much Helicopter in his blood! He will pop up somewhere I am sure, Hell he might even get back into competition at some point after he rest up a bit, who knows! Will besides the Shadow!

Mark keep your camera at the ready.

Read his mag and followed his flying throughout the years. He should be in the RC Heli Hall of Fame...

Mike Mas in RC Hili Hall of Fame!
I would sure think that Mike Mas would be among the very first in an R/C Hall of Fame.

When I first started R/C Helicopters with my Kalt Baron 20, reading about the doings of people like Mike Mas, Curtis Youngblood, and Ray Hostetler's column in RCM was a Gold Mine of Information and Inspiration. Both Ray and Mike went on to do their own Magazines as will, and Curtis Youngblood went on and is still defining what it means to be a champion!

So Mike sure gets my vote!

Jim I too started with a Kalt Baron 20. Mike, Ray, John Gorham, John Benario, Paul Tradelius would be my top 5 Hall of Famers. Each had a major contribution, but Mike Mas really made the rc heli what it is today with control setup.

Too bad to hear this.

I remember when I was first learning to fly seeing Mike flying at Markham park in Ft Lauderdale FL. He might as well have been flying a spaceship to me.
I give up on Loctite, nothing lasts long enough to vibrate loose anymore.

Yes James Wang is around if he gets jammed up with a buisy scedule
I build and set up most of his helis.

I generally let him take photos and write reviews on some of my stuff also,
note the "ct chopper" decals.

Also note that all of my helis sport the Ready Heli decal

My guess is that you might see much more from RC Heli Mag in 2011.

Just a hunch.

Photoshoped or not
I`ve always wondered about the Rotary mag cover on the Xcell standing on its tail.

In a lot of years of flying i`ve never seen anyone try it.

Has anyone else ever seen it or tried it?

Look at the link if you don`t know what i`m talking about.

What do you think?
