Thumbs up AMA Aircraft Plans

The AMA (Model Aviation Magazine) has been working on this web site for awhile now, at the moment you can view plan selections and even order a few (nope, not free) but reasonable. Pretty good selection of hard to find models......the site indicates it should be at full speed in March 2014.

http://www.modelaircraft.org/plans/listing.aspx

And this months Model Aviation has three good articles related to CG, covering and beginners guide to electrics.

http://www.modelaviation.com/february2014

Part of the reason I subscribe.......

They do have a good collection. I find they run the entire joint, from membership to business lines to be run very well. They are just a good bunch of folks. I happily support them! I really should just get my life membership...

I wish, really wish, they could acquire the now defunct RCM collection. Some/much of that collection may be lost forever. That has some true gems, as that was the be-all mag of several decades here in the US....

The good news is they are attempting to get the collection, the bad news is nobody seems to respond to them.

Nice that the AMA recognizes that value and they are trying!

It might be - we should put all the plans services too - not just AMA. Work on a draft thread and send that idea off to Don - I like it.

I considered it, but there is a previous link (sticky) section that has quite a few threads assigned.....not well organized but lots of links:

http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14868

Had not planned on "building" a site specific section.....but I too like the idea.....thanks!

Edit:

Just added it to the above link.......might be redundant, but it would take some time to organize a complete archive and dedicated plan services header.
