Great app Would be better if people had to put up a picture instead of being optional. Also, when clicking on a place marker, the picture should come up. Nice UI. Also I would like to link any youtube videos I have to the location I am reviewing.

Robert Martinez

Awesome app This is a great app and will get even better as more people contribute to it. Would be great if reviewers could have the option to edit as well as make it easier for anyone to upload pictures.

Must-have for traveling w/drone Great benefit for 'local' knowledge. How can I add photos after submitting a site review?

butch brown

Drone zonrs Added my first point of interest. Easy to use. As more are added will be a great app when traveling.

Nicolas Palomo

Fantastic idea. I'll be adding new zones constantly.

Derek Mcpherson

Works great. Has made me visit a few new places to fly that I would have otherwise not thought of. Also like the built in navigation with Google maps.

Justin H

Hard to find places Something odd with the way this locates places that people have added to the map. A few will pop up immediately near me. But moving the map to another area not to much further away yeilds 0 locations. However once I added a location myself, over a dozen were found in that area. Devs can you fix this? Otherwise this is a great concept of an app.

Gary Lord

I cant find any locations in the UK Ive tried a nexus 7 2nd gen and a xperia z2 both running android 5. Great idea just dosent work for me for some reason

Steve SKP

OK, thanks - it has now let me sign up - I will test the app as I drive around this week and try to submit a few loacal places that I love to fly :)

rueben martinez

What a great idea! What do I keep getting needs to update but there is no update available!

David Albin

Great app After a brief outage this app is once again working great. We just need more participation from local users.

Ross Tancred

Dangerously deficient. No reference to CASA no fly zones. People using this app may assume incorrectly that they are permitted to fly in a No FLy Zone. Fines, jail and all sorts of things may follow. I suggest a very strongly worded disclaimer but also an overlay of Australia Casa no fly zones would make this less than useless and safer.

Elliott G

Nice simple app Easy way to locate places to fly.

Bruce Lehmann

Great little ap and will only get better as time goes on.

Peter Ormerod

Needs to be better serch Needs to be better to find site's that are near your location and bring them up on the map or as list

Kevin Wood

Flipping brilliant

Hyon Kim

I'm loving it Awesome possum

tommy davachi

Shows nothing in u.s

jordan klamut

No locations

Chuck Messel

Not what I expected Was looking for no fly zone information. I am sure this is a good app for sharing spots others have found, but does not take into account the legality of flying in these locations.

Graham Rodgers

A great app to fly you uav in an area you don't know

Rolando Perez

Can't register Every time I try to register it says my passwords do not match. I have try everything from copying and paste to simple 123456 kind of passwords it always says the same passwords do not match and don't let me register.

Philip Stowell

Who checks the regulations Is there any reference to each nations aviation regulations. It certainly doesn't work in Brisbane. Far too many pins in forbidden zones.

Matt B

Could get you into trouble People are putting up some good places to fly but the problem is that some of them are in restricted areas. I live near an airport and places that shouldn't be used are coming up and it's a hefty fine if caught

Jim Sparky

Good Great idea,got a few new spots to fly from I will be trying out

Darren Gibbard

Very nice app Does the job well; though would be nice if you could also add the type of flying style that you think an area is suitable for, maybe in the form of tick boxes? And different colour pushpins to indicate the flying style - there's different requirements for racing/freestyle vs cinematography for example :)

Billy Jeffs

Not bad at all, but functionality to link to YouTube videos filmed at the location and ability to message other members and arrange meet ups would make this app perfect.

Rich Woods

Very useful Helpful living in a small town

Roy Gangle

Just showed places that are people's back yard and streets

Janis Freibergs

Restarts phone Every time I launch this app it restarts my S6.

Gediminas G.

Mostly illegal places Most of the places do not meet CAA requirements, like for example Central London and other populated areas.

Daniel Chang

Nice idea. But unfortunately there are people using the app, who don't know the rules, marking flying spots right next to the major international airport in my town, far from being legal.

Justin Attwood

Good...but... Hi, hopefully your downloads just increased as I've just been sharing this among my groups, can I make 2 suggestions-different pins for clubs/no fly zones and something to say whether it's suitable for racing or aerial photography or both. Thanks, FawkedUpFPV

Timothy Morrison

Good app to track great drone flying areas. Would get 5 stars if the developers were to include no fly zones, as presently users would post areas of interest and attract flyers into a particular area when in fact it's illegal to fly there!

Wynne Davies

There is no way I have found to remove a pin you have placed or any way to report a pin to administration if there is any that have been placed with bad information. Think about the red pin for no fly as drone users can help drone users not fly where not wanted and not safe. I will now post some pins but wish it was followed through with more support and administration for above points. I am also moving my star to Just ok as it can be improved.

Zap Andersson

Why no sattelite mode in the maps? Much easier to pinpoint your spot (to the proper tree!) in satellite view.... Do you have an API? I run a a Swedish "variant" of this which is simply nothing more nor less than a public Google map. Would be fun to auto-populate your app from there.... :)

Johan Botha

Like the concept, but people add useless places! I like the app, but wtf are people adding places where you can not fly? It is like farting in a perfume factory.

David Riley

Looked in local area, all places are just spam/bars - no ability to report or remove fake suggestions.

Danny madge

Poor info I live in a restricted airspace area. You shouldn't fly around here at all (near an airport). Quite a few pins show straight away! Needs looking at and colour coding for no fly zones.


Justin atwood He made a good point the app works well but it needs a no fly zone map on it along with what drone it is useful for
