Default RC Magazines

Do any newsagents still stock them? Locally in Canberra, I can't find any! Well, most stock Racing Lines, but no one seems to stock the US magazines anymore. Do they exist in the bigger Sydney/Melbourne shops?

I see them occasionally in some of the local newsagents but it only seems to be in the larger stores in the major shopping centers (Castle Towers, Rouse Hill Shopping Village, etc) but these places tend to have 2 or 3 shops per center. Being in Canberra though I don't know how many major/mega shopping hubs you have so maybe visit the biggest one you have and take a look there.

Note: It's also been a while since I've actively looked for a mag so my info may be a bit old.

It's Canberra, we don't do 'mega'. Ha!

Our local newsagents stocks RC Driver and RC Car Action. But - its a LOT cheaper to get them digitally now (especially rcca).

I like the idea of having a quick flick through then buying the ones with a few interesting articles. But I guess the $30- or so for Digital RCCA is cheaper than 2 or 3 traditional mags. Might have to succumb to the 21st century

I'll vouch for the mag; downloaded the free trial, and it's a great read. Only drawback is that you have to take your tablet with you into the toilet for a quiet moment

I sit at a screen all day at work, and a lot of the time otherwise. For me recreational reading is a lot more recreational if it's in print.

Was just thinking that. My missus won't let me take her Ipad to the crapper, and I reckon my phone will be too small. But thanks mcmoney. I'll definately check it out.

And I did find one newsagent in Canberra that still stocks RCCA and RCD
