The future of the magazine
Issue 4 was released last week and personally I think it was our best issue yet, so our attention has turned to the future of the magazine. Interest in the magazine is growing steadily with each issue and we have had some great feedback so far however we do feel we are in need of some changes to the format.
We love RC drifting but it has become clear we are catering to a very small audience, when we started out with the mag we always had a goal of getting review content in there but we have had no joy with any manufacturers to this day. In fact we have sent a copy of the mag out on more than one occasion to them and had zero response or feedback (Maybe they just don’t think it’s any good). We always wanted to show the hobby off as a whole so not be solely a review machine but a place that highlighted the good stuff in the hobby from individuals and teams, tracks and venues, talented builders etc. I think we do that with the current format pretty well and people are always submitting content we are already well underway with issue 5.
So how do we change it up a little?
We want to dedicate a section of each issue to none drift related content, we don’t plan on taking content out we will simply make each issue bigger. Hopefully this will give us a broader audience and also it may introduce RC drifting to people who are not familiar with it. The logical step for us would be to include scale/crawler content as it is something we are big fans of and we know many people who drift also scale as well.
We don’t want to stop at just crawling, we would love to cover all aspects of the RC world and maybe even none RC related hobbies which people may find interesting static model builds for example. We don’t know if we want to change to a fully-fledged RC magazine but it can’t hurt to show off some of the other stuff that is out there.
What we need!
We want to keep to a similar format with none drift related content, so we would like to feature great spots to go scaling/crawling for example. Awesome tracks to go buggy racing, tips, advice, information on anything and everything. Let’s just make this magazine about the fun that is had in the hobby regardless of whether it is crawling, racing, flying, bashing or vintage.
