    Kind of reminds me of Strava for drone flyers. Will have to see if people use it and how well it actually works. Hopefully it does and flyers sign in and use it.

    FYI, you don't know, Strava is an App for cyclist to find other riders, compete against ghost riders over segments and a social athlete type App.

    Yeah there're a bunch within 5 miles of my local airport as well (which is large by the way).

    Somewhere I saw there was an Discover App for Android. But I can't find it?

    Not sure I like how this works. It shows you the address and a map on how to get to people. If you are upset that the FAA will be making the registrations searchable, what about this... you don't even need any numbers, just click & go. Cant be a good thing. What was DJI thinking? :eek:

    I have Android 5.02.03 I think. The App says it's not compatible with thus device.

    The app crashes on both my Galaxy S6 and my Tab S2. Have yet to get it to work.

    Glad its not just me. Crashes after about 1-2 seconds of loading the map here. Can't believe DJI would put out an app untested like this.

    I don't Facebook and I'm not doing this.

    I don't understand the fascination with sharing our lives with everyone

    I'm still messing with it but it just don't show you all that .
    Or I just haven't figured it out yet . Can't be the only one in MS messing with it .
    From what I've seen if someone plans a flight near you then you will see them .
    Still messing with it and really not many here where I am at that would use it .
    I do know someone can plan a flight from another state at your location and you will see them .
    as well as their flight plan .
    Again I am still just playing with it .

    Well, Facebook is a bit different, you only share to who you want to (friends) not the general public.... like this app apparently does. No thank you for me!
