I subscribe. I like the content. They are a little slow with each months issue though. (both the web based & the mailed).

While some people have complained that RC Microflight is a little pricey, it has been worth it to me. I've learned a lot, and continue to pick up ideas. You get a copy in the mail each month, and you have access to all back issues on the website.

They've just started a sister publication that's a quarterly magazine (as opposed to newsletter) called "Backyard Flyer". $14.95 for 1-year.

http://www.backyardflyer.com

I'm looking forward to it!

I subscribe to R/C Microflight, but I think the best source for info. about electric flight is Ezone. And Ezone is free.

It really depends on your knowledge level in my opinion. Last year when I started into small electrics and knew almost zero, RCM was a great value. Especially since once I was a subscriber, I got to read all the back issues on line for free. There is a wealth of knowledge in the back issues!!

However, as a person's knowledge base increases and you make more contacts for sharing knowledge and experience, (such as Ezone), RCM progressively loses it's value. My subscription is up this month and I don't think I'll renew. This year I don't get the extra value of back issues to read and the current ones don't seem to publish anything I haven't already discussed and/or read about in the forums. I'll miss John Worths' column, but besides that, there's nothing to justify the $30 subscription price.
