    SCUBA divers, skydivers, pilots, etc. all keep logbooks, or should. This makes me wonder if anyone has developed a RC logbook.

    Instead of my Googling it, I wanted to know if you log. If so, what do you use as a logbook? Do we need to develop one?

    I use MS Excel.
    Tab 1 is for total hours per session, location and comments.
    Tab 2 is for total minutes per battery.
    Tab 3 is for recording skills practiced and lessons learned (like "remember to stop the video before switching off").

    I do far to much paperwork at my job. I just save the video named with date and location, save my dvr recording and flytrex data.
