Ratings and Reviews
Don't know how good this is it won't even let me register, I follow instructions even emailed them and was told use more letter nope oh well. One pop up said use all letters next pop up said use letters and numbers.
Good in Idea - Needs enhancements
Interesting - I’ve got two apps on my iPhone to try and help with these type of functions.
Hover, Drone Buddy and Drone Zones
Drone Buddy does a better job of showing no-fly zones.
Drone Zones ATTEMPTS to allow you to identify and score places to fly the quad.
Both have major weaknesses (I”m out in Las Vegas and just looking for good safe interesting places to fly)..
Few key weaknesses with Drone Zones:
1) Really wish there was an easier way to see “distance” between one place and another.
2) Need a way to get an actual address to come up
3) Need a way to push the address to a map tool (google maps / wake / etc.) so I can find out how far and directions to that location.
Bottom line, my process should be.
1) Pull up map
2) Search for locations close to where I am
3) View ratings (I like what Drone Zones does with allowing you to score based upon landing areas, view, etc.)
4) Ensure that the locations are outside of No Fly Zones
5) Pull up other Flight related data
6) Determine distance between where I am and the location both as crow flies and by driving
Useless at the moment.
2 stars for the initiative, but at the moment it seems useless for me. I can only search for places to fly (using the discover feature) where my current location is! It would be nice to be able to see places where I want to go instead, but typing the place/city on the search bar doesn't allow that, it simply is a shortcut to create a point. Also a list of all the places registered would be nice. I will be adding my places and contributing, and hopefully this gets fixed and the app becomes useful. The idea is great and has all my support.
