"Webster's Dictionary defines a jig as 'to sing, play, dance, jerk or jolt up and down, move jerkily, or work with the aid of a jig'. This is as good a way as any to begin this month's journey into new ideas and practices. And after reading, you may well be dancing a jig."

I've really enjoyed seeing those old issues of RCM, some of which I never saw while I was away at boot camp with the USAF. RCM was such a revelation when it first appeared in Oct of 63, so far ahead of all the other magazines, it was R/C only. They're the reason I got into electronics, believing I could build my own radio with a little schooling. Of course I had no money for school but the US Army at the time was offering a guarantee of whatever school you chose if you passed the test and enlisted for three years. I passed and chose the Army school at Ft Monmouth New Jersey, however, when they found out I was color blind (slightly) they rejected my application. The USAF had a similar program but you had to commit for four years. I was prepared to argue my way past the color test with a pocket full of colored wire to identify but I lucked out and they never tested me. I made a living for years in the electronics field and it's all because of RCM, still build occasional projects, latest is a 4 channel audio amp for a friend's wedding chapel. Most of the parts came from my extensive Get-Me-Outa-Trouble box. But I never did build that radio after realizing how hard it was to find all the parts.....This '66 issue seems to be one of the first appearances of MonoKote, and it was NO GOOD. The glue was different, sticky to the touch, ironed on like you would expect but it wrinkled up like a prune after exposure to the sun. Top Flite later changed the glue and it's been the same ever since. It was expensive then and it still is, known as "MoneyKote" back in the day....

Glad the old RCMs are going down well :) We've just got hold of the first three issues - October, November & December 1963. I'll put them on the site as soon as poss.

Having started in radio control with 'helped free flight' to transition to just plain 'proportional' it's pure delight to read every thing I ignored about those magical sets controlling those 'wild' Airplanes ! All this to understand that a well trimmed air model really KNOWS how to fly while you are trying to 'control' it ! Airplanes is still my job today. What a great web site !
