RC Magazines

I need to know what aircraft modeling magazines you have subscriptions too. I want to get 1 or 2 magazines subscriptions going and don't know which are the best informative.

Any input would be greatly appreciated !!

I subscribed to alot of magazines, but I find that rcgroups gives me the info I want.
I think that the only sub I'll keep is flying models.
I like their diversity of subjects.
I feel the other magazines is more like advertisments.

Concur on those two, and for fun I get Fly RC. RC Report is no longer in print.

I greatly lament the passing of RC Report. No plans presented, but no BS either. (Well, none that wasn't deliberate funny stuff!) Model Builder and RCM are just sad memories too. If I could afford it, I'd subscribe to RC Model World, but getting it to the US from the UK is not cheap. Fly RC started out really well but fizzled, although I do still subscribe in the hope that it will revive. The one I always have liked, and still subscribe to is Flying Models. As for Model Airplane News, it's just Mostly ARF News. It ceased to be a model builder's mag after Walt Schroder died - a LONG time ago!

I also get Model Airplane News, FlyRc and the AMA magazine, Model Aviation. They pretty much cover the hobby.

As a child and young adult, I loved RCM and idolized Don Dewey (although I never met him). He, Ken Willard, Chuck Cunningham, Clarence Lee et al., were among my childhood heroes, along with Walt Good and Maynard Hill (both of whom I had the incredibly great fortune to know personally).
