    RCFlyMaps - A mobile app to know where to fly and not to fly.

    I NEED BETA TESTERS!

    RCFlyMaps is a personal project of mine born out of the frustration of not knowing where I could and could not fly my RC aircraft. Coming at the problem from a design and technology background (which is what I do for a living) I decided to invest nearly $10k of my own money and 2 months of my time to create an application that I hope helps my fellow RC flyers. It is an application that I will be publishing in the Apple and Google App stores. What is it? It is a GPS connected application that stores locations to a web connected backend. What does this mean? Real-time data on my phone. Utilizing Google Maps api's we plot locations on a map. Right now, we have the ability to show all Airports, some military bases, and now National Parks. I have also added all of the AMA fields and associated contact info.

    As a user, you can see/search for locations on a map, you can view their details, and you can save locations to your favorites. You also have the ability to add your own user recommended/not recommended locations.

    Here are some screen caps of the app. If you would like to be a part of my beta test program, please shoot me a PM and we will get your device setup. This should happen by the end of this week.

























    Please let me know what you think.
