It's hard on these magazine publishers when you can go to sites like big squid and redrc for free.

Bess has already said, while he is staying on the left coast, he will be returning to work for RCCA. So far, none of the others have mentioned any plans regarding work.

Problem is with the internet, you already know about everything that is in the mag by the time you get it. This last issue of RCCA, I literally skimmed through it in about 10mins tops. There just wasn't anything in it that I didn't already read about or see online. It seems it's practically impossible for publishers to keep up nowadays.

Actually, they were digi. In fact, I believe they were the first of the major RC rags to do so. But, as noted by Slo... Plus, I don't think digi only would really generate enough income anyway.

To bad, I always look forward to reading it. Arron and Stephen were the fastest two magazine writers for sure. I had met and raced with both, I trusted what they had to say about equipment cars & trucks. They will be missed.

I really liked the "Vintage R/C" article each month!
Will miss it...

That's too bad, was much better than most of the other crap out there. RC411 is okay, RC Driver is terrible just terrible. Don't see mags lasting much longer when you can get 1000000X the information, articles, new releases, and reviews free on the net. I occasionally pick up a mag but it's usually in the bin within an hour after I read the two paragraphs of content. REDRC for example, just fantastic. RCTECH, the best place on the net
