Default Xtreme RC magazine?

I put in a subscription months ago and haven't received any issues. Is this mag dead?

I bought mine in early December 2010. First issue was March 2011. It eventually came. Just have to buy the earlier ones from the shop.

Id actually seen that the magazine is not around anymore. There was a post that December 2011 was the final issue.

Bugger! That wil explain why I haven't received one for a while. I sent them an email a week or so ago, no reply yet. Hopefully they will soon and transfer my subscription to RCCA to RCD as the articles suggest.

I still have 6 months left of my current subscription - I hope it does get transferred to another mag.

Sorry guys,

XRC is done. Sad times....but

There is something coming and if you liked that magazine our new project (not affiliated with xrc at all) is Velocity RC Magazine. Digital only and just $1.99 an issue. We're working on it now and we should be dropping the first issue around 2/29/12

Right now we have a place holder www.vrcmag.com but you can follow us on FB/Twitter/YouTube to get the updates.

Online only? Sweet. Now you guys are the Cracked of R/C. I guess that kinda fits perfectly - since the other magazines are comparatively fish wrap like MAD is now..

Bummer, I loved XRC, I'll be looking forward to Velocity when it goes live. Will there be more race coverage in the new mag?

Is anyone answering questions about our old subscriptions. I'm out of pocket for 6 months subscription. No way I'll be paying for a new one with an affilliated or even semi-associated group if my current subscription isn't paid out somehow.
