    That is a really cool idea. I think you could improve it by adding and example of how it is used. I for one don't know how I watch any flights, nor if there even is any flight added yet... maybe an example flight?
    Where I can find the first blue or yellow pin you are talking about?

    Anywho, just to make ppl quickly interested.... because it is a cool idea.

    Edit: Oh now I actually got a blue mark up on the map, I didn't have this before :)

    Well, we have... three user-added flights as well as the four I've added. Not a lot... It's not my own thing; it's a dream of this map being filled with flights that we all add. Please, help me out - how can I attract fliers to share?

    This thing is so easy, even a cave man can do it. :lol: :lol: :lol: Just read the instructions fellas. If you can figure out how to fly the Phantom, than you can figure out how to post on this Flight Map. The only slightly challenging part was plotting your location. I missed by about 1/2 mile. LOL!!!

    That's exactly what you are doing. You copy and paste your link into the remarks box. .

    Thanks, guys! We have 24 entries already. I actually go over each one; administer it (review it); and if it's ok approve; then I draw a marker around the area covered by the flight and like the video on YouTube. Interesting if this would take off. It's so great to watch videos on the map!

    Ok, so some feedback. The map to put a location on stays behind the info/location/description etc box so its awkward to put a pin on the video location. Second, when I go to your site I don't see any pins locating the videos I uploaded.

    Shame you can't edit them afterward. I didn't know I had to paste the youtube code into the text so now you have a flight at wasaga beach Ontario with no video LOL

    After some additional web development this is going to be an awesome tool!

    If I were you I would reach out to the Google developers because this idea falls right inline with their entire business model. $$$

    On flight without video - I saw it and removed it. Please, re-add.

    On vimeo - yes, it's on the site now.

    On not seeing your videos - they are all added now and you can see everything (quite a few already).

    On editing - you can't. I'll look into improving this. Actually you can, but with the link it gives you right after adding the pin.

    On the map being behind the Add window - you can move the window to the side to reveal more map.

    Share, Watch, Enjoy!
