There is a drone magazine – RotorDrone magazine @rotordrone

15 Rd Mayjune
RotorDrone – Drones and multirotor aircraft news, videos, aerial photography, intel. It’s from the editors of Radio Control Car action and Model Airplane News. July/Aug preview here.

RotorDrone captures the explosive growth of UAVs, quadcopters, and multirotor drones. Multirotors are everywhere and RotorDrone is there at every turn — from SWAT team takedowns, dangerous firefighting rescues, the dust-and-dirt world of motocross, the backcountry of Patagonia and we even try Lady Gaga’s famous quadcopter dress on for size. Readers will be captivated by both the spellbinding photography and thrilling stories to be found on every page of RotorDrone.
