The wife saw this strange covered RCM&E in a local newsagent and nearly bought it thinking it was a new mag I didn't know about. I've never seen it before either. Anybody have the story? As a subscriber I already had it of course.

Yep - the US branded mag - a few issues back a number of UK subscribers received this version somehow in the mail instead of the regular RCM&E - I think the article content is identical throughout, but Im not sure - are the adverts tailored for the US market - I guess so?!

A quick Google doesn't throw up much but there are loads for sale under this banner on eBay, all in the US.

I guess that clears that one up.

At the moment they do, but there's hope yet if we continue to educate them... wink 2

Just be sure that you never call it a plane...

I originally bought it as " R/C Model Aeroplanes" at Chapters or Indigo Bookstores. Ended up subscribing, and getting RCM&E mailed to Canada. No savings on subscribing though.

If you watch old American films they often refer to 'Aeroplane' rather than 'Airplane', so maybe a modern trend. While we're at it 'Stabiliser' or the horrible term 'Stab' seems to be creeping into the magazine rather than TAILPLANE.
