I'm moving more to cancelling my subscription than I am to renewing.

I think that might hurt you more than the magazine Malcolm, as you will end up paying more for your favourite magazine from your local newsagent, assuming that they have one in stock. In which case you might miss out completely rather than having to wait a few more days. Anyway, don't you know there is a war on? - furloughed staff,  part time working, people working from home. Give the editor a break!

Piers, I know you mean well but things haven't been easy for myself. Ten years ago a paraplegic friend asked me to help with her mother, they had been at that time friends of mine for thirty years, so naturally I agreed. It turned out that my friends mother had dementia and over the next few years the dementia progressed as it normally does and six years ago the care became too much for me on my own and my friend had to retire to look after her mother. Needless to say my flying became less and less as the dementia progressed until for the last two years I managed no flying at all. The mother passed away on 'Mothering Sunday', then lockdown started. I sometimes have meetings on Zoom and if I'm really lucking a skype one-to-one. With the lockdown being gradually lifted there's hope of meeting friend but most of them, naturally want to see their families before they want to see their 72 year old friend, so I'd be grateful if you'd keep your assumptions to yourself. Receiving the magazine is one of the small bright moments but as I fly electric only it is often irrelevant for me so £5.75 is often a waste of money because if there's not enough in the magazine, I won't be buying it from any newsagent.

Malcolm, I am sorry you have been having tough time of it one way and another. I don't make assumptions about anybody on the forum as none of us know of other members personal circumstances, I just read your post and it sounded like you were a bit piqued by having to wait a bit longer for your subscription copy of the mag. Evidently you are actually not happy with the content which is of course an entirely different thing. Why don't you email Kevin and say what you would like to see more of and, you never know, others might have suggested similar things to you. I am sure Kevin appreciates anybody taking the time to give him their feedback.

Anyway, I hope you continue to enjoy the hobby and are able to meet up with old friends soon. Also, I do apologise if I caused offence in some way, clearly not my intension. The last sentence was meant to be tongue-in-cheek by the way!

Hope that David (Ashby) is watching these posts. I generally really enjoy the magazine. Hoever -too many pages given over to hugely expensive radio equipment, and hugely expensive (jet and other) models. More general middle of the road stuff please!

jason -I If your waiting for it through royal mail please dont forget we are still massively understaffed due to leave and sick leave(self isolating) etc.

Deliveries in shared vans still not allowed and where i am many many places are only getting mail once or twice a week.
