    I find myself always hunting for good scenic spots and also suitable take off/land point near them. Do people have recommendations for apps or techniques they use to scout locations?

    I geocache, so I find a lot of interesting spots on Geocaching.com. As a for instance, this was yesterday, it is pretty much in the middle of nowhere! Beyond that Google Earth.

    To boot it's even a Pokemon Gym! lol

    I too use google and google maps. I think of an area I've been to that I might want to fly/photo, I think google map it to see what the area looks like. I also google to make sure its not some NFZ area...
