Don Dewey Memorial Radio Control Modeler (RCM) Plans Collection


I intend this to be a collection of the plans published by the now defunct RCM Magazine.

I will organize it as follows, the numbered list represents post numbers. When BOLD, I have completed posting the data. When HIGHLIGHTED, I have more to do but am pushing on.
  1. This post will become a table of contents.
  2. Volume 1 (October 1963 - November 1964)
  3. v01n01 - October 1963
  4. v01n02 - November 1963
  5. v01n03 - December 1963
  6. v01n04 - January 1964
  7. v01n05 - February 1964
  8. v01n06 - March & April 1964 See Note V02n11

  12. v01n10 - September 1964
  13. v01n11 - October 1964
  14. v01n12 - November 1964
  15. Volume 2 (December 1964 - December 1965)
  16. v02n01 - December 1964
  17. v02n02 - January 1965
  18. v02n03 - February 1965
  19. v02n04 - March 1965
  20. v02n05 - April 1965

  22. v02n07 - June 1965
  23. v02n08 - July 1965
  24. v02n09 - August 1965
  25. v02n10 - September 1965
  26. v02n11 - October & November 1965 (NOTE: This completed the steps required to synchronize the RCM publishing year with the calendar year.)
  27. v02n12 - December 1965
  28. Volume 3 (January 1966 - December 1966, plus the RCM 1966 Annual)
  29. v03n01 - January 1966
  30. v03n02 - February 1966
  31. v03n03 - March 1966
  32. v03n04 - April 1966
  33. v03n05 - May 1966
  34. v03n06 - June 1966

  36. v03n08 - August 1966
  37. v03n09 - September 1966
  38. v03n10 - October 1966
  39. v03n11 - November 1966
  40. v03n12 - December 1966
  41. 1966 Radio Control Modeler Annual (Special Edition)

I will place a post at the beginning of each Volume (publishing year) to eventually hold an overview.

The introductory post will be followed by a post for each regular or special issue.

My eventual goal will be to post the cover, table of contents, editorial, each construction article, and each plan in the issue.

Until the posting structure is complete, any additional postings by visitors will be acknowledged but eventually deleted.

NOTES for later use:
Quote:
Don Dewey, founder of R C Modeler magazine and long time Sierra Madre resident, passed away Sunday February 27, 2000 from an apparent heart attack. He founded the magazine in 1964, handing out copies at contests. It has since grown into the worlds largest circulation radio control hobby magazine. His later interest turned to a fish and aquarium publication (FAMA). He lived with his wife Sally in Sierra Madre and rarely found reason to leave the quaint town. They lost their son in a motorcycle accident about 20 years ago. Don and Sally were longtime supporters of the Sierra Madre (later Santa Fe Dam) Radio Control Modelers club, regularly paying dues even as honorary members. We were honored with their presence at a club Christmas Party at the Sierra Madre Rec. Center about 8 years ago. We honor Don's memory and thank him for his contribution to our hobby and the community. We extend condolences to Sally and the staff and our friends at RCM In lieu of flowers, Don's wife Sally has asked that donations be made to a charity. Three of Don's favorite charities are: Feed The Children, P.O. Box 36, Oklahoma City, OK 73101; Christian Appalachian Project, 322 Crab Orchard Rd, Lancaster, KY 40446; Doris Day Animal League, 227 Massachusetts Ave NE, Suite 100, Washington, DC 2000
Special thanks to RCGroups user DStone for contributions of information.

Quote:
The first twelve issues -Volume 1 - of RCM is past history. You have made this publication a success, growing from 48 pages and a circulation of 7,000 .
copies to 64 pages and a circulation of 63,000. Next month we begin Volume 2 and the first step of a planned expansion program, increasing the number of pages to 72. In the next, and succeeding issues, you will see several new "firsts" in model publications, plus some very exciting items for RC never before attempted or presented by the model press. In addition, the first RC Modeler Annual will make its appearance sometime after the first of the year - a valuable reference handbook of plans, articles, and data sheets that will be more than just a rehash of old ideas and concepts.

It's going to be a good year. A year for going forward with a hobby that will grow beyond all preconceived limitations. Stay with it.

Peace.

-- Don Dewey
