If you used a credit card you can try doing a charge back.

Last I heard the IRS was after them and they stopped delivering magazines to everyone. Didn't stop them from accepting renewals and taking peoples money though .

Unfortunately they did close and if you paid other than CC, there's no way to get your money back

That's either a cruel joke or you're talking about RC Heli Pilot, which is a completely different magazine.

I actually got an e-mail from Zinio a week or so ago wanting me to resubscribe. Maybe somebody needs to tell them the magazine is dead.

I don't think you have a July issue of RC Heli since they have been bankrupt for a few months now. The Aug/Sept issue of RC Heli Pilot just delivered which is a new publication and much better mag IMO. RC Heli was always doing articles on helis that had been released a year earlier!

No sense in stewing over this - call your credit card company and explain that you paid for a subscription that was never delivered. If you bought the digital version of the magazine at Zinio (like I did), contact them and ask for a refund. You should be able to get your money back.

If you paid by check then you might be on your own. This is one reason why I rarely pay for anything with a check nowadays.

(I also highly doubt they'll show up at IRCHA with RCHeliMag polo shirts on.)

Wow, I didn't realize that. I stopped getting it because A) it made me spend more money on heli's, and B) I was cutting my budget all over. I thought it was a good magazine except for the spelling and grammatical mistakes. I expect in here in a forum, but not a magazine.

If you bought the digital version of the magazine at Zinio be careful. I just got an email from Zinio asking me to renew my subscription. Kinda shady if you ask me.

Maybe we should put our own magazine and call it... Heli-Yeah!
