RCCA Old Mags / One year membership

Post by CalvinH »

Hi!

I’d like to ask for some help, as RCCA and Air Age are not willing to help me.

I was a subscriber of RCCA on 1990-1991, and have some even older mags. I had to cancel my subscription because I had several mags stolen from my mailbox :x .

Nowadays I buy RCCA from a Bookstore (10$ each…, this is Spain :( ) but I would love to have all the old mags I missed.

I have contacted both RCCA and Air Age without any results. After looking for these old mags in the web for sometime, I am unable to get them.

So the question now is, will the one year membership allow me access to all this old mag? If it does, what kind of access?

http://www.airagestore.com/cars/memberships/one-full-year-of-exclusive-member-access-for-only-19-95.html

If anyone around here has this membership I would love to hear about it. It talks about “26 years of RC Car Action archives”, but I don’t know if this is access to a PDF archive (I can download and read them offline) or just online browsing.

I have re-read my mags six or seven times, and I would like something that allows me to keep them, not just read them online.

Sorry for the long post and the bad english, and thank you very much.

Have a look through this thread Calvin: http://www.rc10talk.com/viewtopic.php?f=82&t=13306 I think this is what you're looking for. Your English is more than fine, not to worry :) Where in Spain are you?

Thank you very much!

That thread was my first try, but everything is offline now.

I am from a small village in Guadalajara. I see Valladolid in your profile. Are you spanish? My father is from Zamora and I go there frequently. I have been to Valladolid just two or three times, but never took time to know the city.

Hi!

After searching, and searching, and leeching and leeching :mrgreen: , I haven't been able to find a working source for the old mags.

So I am going ahead with the one year membership and just pray it takes me where I want to go... a server full of pdfs of the old RC mags, available for me to DL.

Thanks to those that have answered something to my whining, and I hope to re-build my understanding of the hobby and be coming back to it anytime soon.

I will try to keep up reading about electrical cars/trucks, but won't be writing too much as I have nothing to contribute with :roll:

Regards :wink:

Just one more thing...

A picture I like on my of my old old mags, with that great 80s look :D . I have tried to scan+crop so filesize is small, but I think quality is bearable.

Not an RC10... I hope I'm not doing anything wrong :mrgreen:

Thanks!

It's from the first mag I bought (dec '87). They got this girl (Barbara Kent) for the photo session, and she, the Brute and the Doberman do make up some nice photos...

BTW, I got this mag from the old Air Force Base on Torrejon de Ardoz. I was just a kid, and had not the money needed to buy the mags every month... What a pity. Now I have the money (at least to buy a magazine) but the shop is gone :cry:

Regards.

Let us know if the archive pdfs become available with the subscription. I would also gladly pay for a subscription to have access to that

I sure will do.

I am right now bidding for something on ebay. As soon as I know if I get it or not I will fulfill my subscription and tell about it.

Be careful when you subscribe because I had a subscription and forgot about it. They billed me again. I was cool with that since I did agree to that deal. Then I told them not to renew again with most of my year left that I paid for. They cut me off, so I emailed them and told them that I paid for a year so why did I lose access? NO RESPONSE. Just an email saying that my email was forwarded to the subscription dept.

Thank you!

I am also not very pleased with their attention. I sent RCCA and AirAge several emails asking them about the one year subscription, and didn't get a single useful response. Well, excuse me, I got a response from their automatic response system saying they will answer me soon... As a relative of mine is going to the US this year I also asked them if it would be possible to buy paper edition of all the old magazines, and picking them up there. I didn't get a response...

So I am not subscribing after all. Yeah, I know, I am only punishing myself, but this kind of attention took all my wishes away :evil:

I will keep on looking for the mags.

Regards!

Your file for 1986 appears to contain no documents (it's also only 3.9 Mb) :(
