Thee droner ,


When downloading this app I thought it would be a simple program for showing regulated areas for flying a drone. But after opening the app I was AMAZED! This app has waypoints and any other app with waypoints costs $5 or more. Just for waypoints! This app is free and they aren’t trying to advertise something every 10 seconds. It also tells you the weather, if it is safe to fly, other aircrafts around you and much much more! I could go on and on about this app but I just want to tell you this if you have a drone DOWNLOAD THIS APP! It is the greatest of all time. Also, I am not being paid to say this. I just think this app is so helpful and great. And for it to be free is just amazing. Thank you to the great developers who created this awesome app. I highly recommend you downloading this app and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! This is why I rate this app 5 stars!

First Authorized Flight

I am new to the world of drone flight, and learning all the ins & outs, the rules and regulations required. I live in Las Vegas and it is very hard to find airspace to fly in that does not have some type of restriction. Before I put power to the drone I did a fair amount of research into what is expected as a new pilot. Kittyhawk was highly recommend, even if you are not 107 qualified. One of the UTune segments showed step by step how the request works. Well today I used it for the first time and it worked flawlessly. I was able to fly not to far from home, and enjoyed the experience without worry of violating airspace. Thanks from a 63 year old rookie.

Authorization denied

Use the app for the first time on Tuesday. I noticed that I was right on the edge of class C airspace. I thought as a precaution I should file for approval. Using the app was easy and I was able to figure out how to map my flight area. After I sent the request I received in big Red Letters Authorization Denied! I thought well it must be because I still have my temp 107. So I told the customer we would have to wait for the demo. After I got home I noticed in very small letters. Not in controlled airspace. Seriously? You cant just say Authorization Not Required? Instead in be red letters it says Authorization Denied.. You should consider modify the program to give a different less confusing notification when we are outside of controlled airspace. Thanks , still giving you 4 stars. will change it to a 5 stars when you fix the confusing message
