Pilot locator on smartphone

No Gravatar

Just been up a little too late last night, working on a cool new thing for all us smartphone users in the RC hobby.

Pilot locator for a smartphone, you can find flying fields, RC buddies and Hobby shops from your smart device, and that is in the entire world, currently there is over 4000 registration on the pilot locator. This is the biggest collection of registered flying fields on one map in the world. (far as I know)

Back to the new feature, the only thing you have to do, is get your smart phone, start up Google maps application, hit search, write http://map.rcheli.dk in the search field and you are ready to go, you can navigate to field, pilot and shop read details about them and you can write to pilot, fields and shop registrations on the map, there is a email function optimized for the smart phones too.

To register on the map, go to http://map.rcheli.dk from your PC.

Check out the intro video below, very easy:

And some screenshots:
The first thing you have to do, search for push-pins like this.

I am not competing at Helibatic this year, sorry to say the other guys seemed like they where having a good time like always. But no I didn’t get the change to practice for the competition this year. But I did get some flights in today and the frenzy was kicking.

    Nokia 6700/6300 RC Helicopter theme

    No Gravatar

    Just got the new Nokia 6700/6300 classic. When I get a new phone I like to give it a personal touch.
    For some time I have working on an idea. The idea was to make a RC Helicopter theme for my phone, most of all because I haven’t been able to find any RC Helicopter related phone theme anywhere, I am guessing that I am not the only one interested in a RC Helicopter theme for the Nokia 6700/6300 Series.

    I have tested the theme on my Nokia 6700/6300, but I think you can use it on other Nokia series too, check it out yourself, and post a comment if it is working on another Nokia series.

    Here are some shoots of the background:

    Here is a teaser the SMS message sound HERE

    I have already had a funny episode with the new ringtone, I was cycling with my kids in our residential area, and I was thinking who the hell is flying an RC heli here, insane!. When I realized it was my phone ringing!!! The new theme is working great.

    You can download the theme here: Nokia 6700 Classic RC Helicopter theme

    Just created this theme for the Nokia 6300 series, you can get it here: Nokia 6300 RC Helicopter theme

    You need the Nokia PC Suite to install it on your phone
