Dood asked....
Can't be worse? Are you delusional?
when I suggested that Radio Control Heli Pilot Magazine can't be any worse than R/C Heli. No Dood, I'm not delusional. I couldnt get R/C Heli to deliver the magazines I paid for so I stand by my statement that I bet RC Heli Pilot will be a good magazine.
As for them covering an event from months ago, you do know it's a quarterly right?

I understand there can be mailing delays, RC Heli doesn't control the postal system, but electronic downloads, why was the April issue not available for download until late April? That I don't understand.

and the May issue was just posted, almost half way through the month of May......

Look at the current issue featured in the upper-right corner of the home page. I bet you can't wait to read about all the latest up-to-the-minute reporting from the event that happened 9 months ago!!

Before you go spouting garbage and flapping your lips, maybe you should do some research. The issue that you posted is the winter 2010 issue, not summer of '11. The link above directs you to the facts.

For you all that do the bashing, you really crack me to an extent. They are a business like another. They work their best to put out a good product and on time. Real world? Things happen and not always a positive spin for everyone. As far as heli pilot, I bought one issue and thought the magazine was a joke. They did an article on something that was like an airhog that you would buy from WalMart and shot missiles. One thing I would love to see in a magazine would be a year end shoot out comparison between 3 or 4 brands of the same size heli. Motorcycle magazines do it, why not rc heli's?

Wow,

I wanted to say thanks for all of the responses, but..... Nothing in these comments gives me a warm and fuzzy about my subscription. And the Mag does seems to be getting thinner.
I was having the exact same problem. I was contacted by Mike Velez. They diffidently had a problem, along with an entire semi full of mags getting wrecked and the driver was killed. I don't know about the rest of you, but that made me feel a little selfish since someone died to deliver our mags. But they've really stepped up. I've gotten all mags for the last 2 or 3 months early. I even got my facebook comment posted that was only a week or two before the mag showed up at my door. Hopefully all you guys are getting yours on time now. Best wishes...

Same here. I heard about the driver being killed over the horrid Winter when I missed an issue and they made good for it. Everyone has their issues. If the magazine isn't to your liking you don't have to buy it. Move on, try and get a refund and purchase another magazine. There aren't many left that are good these days.

A truck crash doesn't explain why my digital subscription never shows up on time. There is more to it than the story being given. Beyond that, are they having truck crashes month after month? Because that is how often there are issues.

I got contacted back when I initially had the issues not showing up problem. I think if I dug deep enough I could find the old posts. I was told they'd had some problems but that everything was better and I'd get my issues. That never happened. Then I asked for a refund, not of issues missed but just what was still remaining on my subscription. I was told I'd get that. Nothing. I followed up and was told they had some problems and that they'd credit me immeditely. That never happened either so I just gave up. Now I hear they are having problems again. I'm out and have moved on. I get much better information from these forums than I ever did from that magazine. Perhaps that's it. The forums have matured and there are so many other means of getting useful information (SmackTalk videos, etc.) that they are getting left behind.

Its pretty clear they decided to market their mag to just the newbies in the hobby and have basically given up on the rest of us.

Print media itself is a dieing industry.
The internet is killing news papers also.
Most news can be gotten within minutes of it happening on the internet.
Magazines are dead. Old news/information.

Here is a problem with communication these days. You all keep bashing the magazine, but offer nothing better. If you are going to offer a problem, then offer a solution as well. Is there a magazine that you consider is better? Have you tried to voice your concerns with the source? They are on facebook. If you really want to get their attention publicly, then post on their page on facebook for them and all for see. I sure haven't found another adequate magazine and I tried one issue of Heli pilot. I was seriously disappointed with one issue.
