Would be nice to be able to edit places that we enter on the maps after they are accepted. Would also be nice to submit changes to existing places in which information is wrong, or misspelled. Also, currently the info that comes up cuts off long location names.

Also if the goal here is to incorporate all of the pre-existing maps into one easily accessible location, then perhaps you can add in some of the features that RCMapy.com has, like a weather tab for fields, a pictures tab, and a comments tab. Also, more location choices to tag for would be nice, such as slopes, water sites, and areas of RC interference

Need more catagories and filters though.

Example:

Power planes
Electric flying
Soaring only
Slope soaring
Control Line
Free Flight
Turbine Flying
etc.....

Also you should add contact info and optional AMA club number.

I agree!

Great Idea!
RCG has a much bigger web presence. It should be a better turn-out than other websites.

I added several flying sites and hobby shops around me.
