It should also predict the actual inflight RPM and the approximate flying speed of the airplane.

There is a bad implementation of a good calculator here: http://2bfly.com/tools/

I say it is a bad implementation because you can only post or bookmark a link to the http://2bfly.com/tools/ page, then you have to pick Calculators, Powerplant Calculators, and finally you can use the RC Airplane Propeller Pitch Speed Calculator.

I still use it because it is a good one, they just re-did their pages and I've mentioned to them that their new page is inferior to the old page and harder to use.

Typical deal, a web page is working fine, some web page programmer convinces the owner that they can make them a beautiful new page, the page owner finally rolls over and coughs up money for a new page and gets one that does not do the job that the old on did as well or even at all.

It is what I call the "New frosting on an old cake that has been spit on first" deal...

This is a hobby and forum that gives freely of advice, plans, info on how to do things, etc. Did it ever occur to you that you wanting to add your app to Apple's greedy little kingdom of "let's make money off of everybody and everything" is a little out of character for this forum and hobby?

Read no anger or insult into this, just polite conversation..

Regarding the latter part of what you said:

If you think that the "hobby" industry is solely committed to providing you with the pleasures of RC for free you are gravely mistaken.

And this forum is obviously supporting paid products - just look at where I posted this: Vendors/Product announcements.

If I could I would work for free unfortunately I have my university education to pay for.

Your suggestions are noted and I will improve the app if a few people buy it. (free updates)
