The app crashes and never loads. Iím hearing they dropped the digital subscription and now make available on their website, after you sign up and pay again? And the copies missed are not available. A slight concern is that I sign and pay then they do this again. I had six months remaining and they are either slow or wonít answer emails.

It sucks they did this and failed to tell anyone. Is this the new America?

I received an email from MAN stating --

Dear Model Airplane News Subscriber,
As a current print and or digital subscriber to the Model Airplane News magazine you are entitled to the digital version of Model Airplane News.

Please use the enclosed credentials to access the free Hangar Select membership where you will have access to the digital version of Model Airplane News.

It's simple. You just need to log in - https://hangar.modelairplanenews.com/?login-type=email Use the following credentials.
Credentials were to use my email as the ID and they gave an initial password..... not sure if prior Digital MAN credentials would still work or not?

Hope this helps!

Barry

Seems we are confusing "Model Airplane News" with "Model Aviation", the latter of which comes with an AMA membership.

Yeah, M.A.N. subscriptions are not worth the hassle of trying to get what you paid for, I gave up on them a couple of years ago.

I just canít believe MAN quietly went away and didnít bother to inform anyone or move active subscriptions to their new system. Plus they donít seem to care either.

I was wondering if I was the only one who experienced this. Guess I know now. Not a could way to make me want to try the new Hanger product. It's pretty much theft.

I wrote to them about the app crashing and access to the digital edition. No answer.
Finally, I found a way to enter the ‘Hangar ‘. . At the bottom of the page - thats were they hide.

Why it have to be so difficult ? They should have on the main page of the web site a BIG red button that say digital edition.

This is not the first time I got trouble accessing the digital edition. They usually fix it after contacting them but answer to email is slow.

On the good points - when you are ‘in’ - all work fine - you can easily view or download the editions.

Oh man, you are WAY too forgiving of these creeps. I initially quite liked the magazine, but like lots of others no longer in business, the conversion to a "digital" copy sounded the death knell for CS. I fought with these hucksters for a number of years; I'd sign up for a two year extension, it'd take 'em six months to cash the check and then I only got a 12 month extension. Try getting them to change the subscription or, G*d forgive; ask for a refund.....

They just don't care and it's just flat not worth the hassle. Way too many other resources out there now to put up with their crap, or at least in my book.
