Thread: Will we continue to get the magazine (RCM&E)?
13/08/2020 09:59:25

Pls, although I was disappointed and up to this day still don’t understand the reasoning behind the decision, there are more pressing issues in the world of today.

This is the reply I got:

We are happy to say that overseas posting has been resumed with the lastest July issue and so will currently be on its way to you now. Please do allow a few weeks for it to get to you, as although it has been resumed it is a little slower than it was before.
Any issues that you've missed during this pause have been added onto the end of your current subscription term so that you receive everything that you've paid for.

But we are waiting for clarification that you will either receive the missing issues (which may be difficult as the print runs were reduced) or you have the same amount of issues added to the end of your subscription. From the wording of the above, I think they intend to simply add extra issues to the end of your subscription...

What I miss in the digital version are the plans, so I hope that the May and June numbers will eventually come to Sweden as well.

Yes, that's why I'm asking.

As a foreign subscriber (The Netherlands) I received my printed July copy in the mail today!
I hope this means that, as far as RCM&E is concerned, things are getting back to 'normal'

So what about the printed May and June issues, are we still going to get these by mail ?

Thread: The big question, WHEN

In The Netherlands, we're allowed on the field again starting today.
However no club meetings or contests are allowed yet, no large numbers and keeping the appropriate distance.

So there's hope guys, the summer hasn't started yet

thanks for your efforts, but 2 remarks:

- I know the correct email is, the problem is they’re not responding.

- I hope your comment about the digital archive ONLY being available on this site is incorrect. My digital subscription has always been available on the RCM&E iPad app. This app is the preferred way to digitally read it for me as this makes it available offline while on this site it is only available while online.

As stated earlier, these are trivial matters In the grand scheme of things, however due to the lockdown we now have plenty of time to occupy ourselves with this great hobby.

I prefer to receive the 'missing' issues as well, rather late than never!!

Skipping a few printed issues would be a great disappointment !

Pls reconsider this policy

Thread: Unable to download May issue

Hoi joost,

Ik kreeg uiteindelijk response van en daar heb ik vanmiddag mee over en weer gemaild. Maar wel door toedoen van David, te zien aan alle doorsturen in de email.


Hi Joost,

In the end I got a response from and we exchanged several emails this afternoon. But only after interference by David because the email was forwarded through several different persons..

I mean I had no access to the digital version in the iPad app, I did have access to the magazine through this website (online only)

Could it be the international subscribers’s subscription are put on hold to stop the printed version being distributed to them, as was mentioned in a separate email we got ?

side affect seems to be that we no longer have access to the digital issue as well.

For me it has been solved by powermags, and I now have access in the app to the issues by means of a powermags login.

However my account still reads ‘suspended’

Is my assumption correct and are you aware of this side affect.

I’m unable to download the digital May issue in my iPad app.

I only get the option to buy it, despite my subscription.

I tried re-entering my subscription number through the Restore Purchases option, to no avail.

Sent an email to but haven’t heard back.

Any suggestions, eager to dive into the May issue

Thread: Arduino project - Servo Exerciser - RCM&E Dec 2018

Thanks for the clarification Mike, makes sense to me now.

Hi Chris,

Just read the article and was wondering why you decided to power the servos through the RAW pin.

Wouldn’t it make more sense to use Vcc? The Arduino can take up to 12V as input, I don’t think all servos would like that.

Looking forward to see what else we can do with the arduino.
