Default What R/C club has a great newsletter?

I've looked around some, but I have not found many really great interesting R/C aircraft club newsletters.

If you know of any, please share the link here.

One of the best newsletters around, with really good solid info. Slanted to builders though, also has archives of some great info.

Thank you Jim - that's sudden, I read the latest Ampeer last week on the old site.

AOL - trying to do what they are always trying to do - get people to give them money. The last time we ditched them as our internet provider was a long while back and we sat listening to hold musak on speakerphone for three hours before we got to a person...

Ken Myers, the culprit behind Ampeer, etc, I will always remember as the guy who really got me started into decent electrics. I'd flown electrics for several years before I 'met up' with Ken, but always floparounds that took about an entire flight to get high enough to land decently from. In email chats with Ken, he learned of my dismal results with an Astro 05G - then a staggeringly expensive and high end lump - using 7 and 8 cell packs.

"Try 10" says Ken, 'but keep the amps to 30'. So I did, and suddenly had an electric that behaved properly in flight, almost like my slimers did - but my wifey much prefered that I didn't come home smelling funny after flying it. Between Ken and his friends (especially the genial bearded one ), there's a lot of real good and useful info on that site.

Regards

Dereck
