RC Driver Magazine Out of Business

RC Driver Magazine Out of BusinessWe regret to report that another great RC car magazine is out of business. It recently came to our attention that many of our fellow RC enthusiasts haven’t been receiving their monthly subscription issues of RC Driver Magazine. We also haven’t been able to find it for sale locally. After a bit of digging we found a statement from RC Driver’s publisher which officially confirms that they have ceased operations. It appears that Editor, Greg Vogel, will continue running the magazine’s website independent of the publisher. Since 2003, RC Driver Magazine has offered RC hobbyists over 150 issues packed with excellent reviews, how-to articles and readers rides. Even our very own Tamiya High Lift was featured in the Show Offs section in the August 2015 issue. We will definitely miss looking forward to each issue. RIP RC Driver Magazine!

“Maplegate Media Group and its staff would like to thank you for allowing us to serve your hobby media needs since 2003. Our Titles, RC Driver, Fly RC Magazine, Drones Magazine, RC Heli Pilot, Airsoft Insider, RC Boat and our special titles have been regarded as the best in the industry, but due to the changing forecast in publishing we are unable to continue our print publications.

With that said, our titles have not ceased to exist. The titles are currently in a state of restructure and transfer to new ownership. We will share more details with you as soon as they are available. We appreciate your patience during this time of restructure and look forward to the new and exciting changes for our digital titles. Greg Vogel, Matt Maziarz, Siri Wheeler, Jeremy Hendricks and the rest of the staff that you’ve followed are eager to continue sharing their passion for the hobby with you for years to come.”

    So what about the people that paid for subscription s and did not get the magazine

    • Gerry, when a magazine is discontinued the publisher will usually offer you a selection of other magazines to replace it or they’ll just send you something similar. However, in this case RCDriver’s publisher Maplegate Media has gone completely out of business so they won’t be offering a replacement. If you can find a contact address for them you may still be able to get a refund but for the most part I think all of the subscribers got screwed out of their money.
