The RCG coders are always hard at work, and sometimes they slip one by me. I was looking at the Maps page today and saw something new in the Tools list called "Find Users Near This Place." Now you can find like-minded RC enthusiasts that are located near the Maps location on which you've clicked. Very slick! I have uploaded some screen shots to help you find this feature and see what it does. Thanks to the RCG coders for this cool new addition to the site!

1. Click on the Maps button.
2. Click on a location.
3. Click on the "Tools" link.
4. Click on the "Find Users Near This Place" link.
5. BAM! Now you have even more RC possibilities!

Our Maps page is growing every day! I'm proud to announce that we now have more than 3,000 locations! Here is a list of some of the things you can find on the Maps page:

- Boating Sites
- Car Tracks
- Flying Fields
- Hobby Shops

Did you know when you find a place on our map you can also:
- get directions to that location
- check the weather at that location
- get a link to that location (if provided)
- find other users that are close to that location
- find Google results for that location

All this comes in handy when you are going to out to do your favorite RC activity but it also comes in handy for your club events.
You can link directly to your field using the Maps page:
Here is an example

So the next time you are looking for a place to fly, boat, drive or buy be sure to check our Maps page and if you're having an event be sure to add your location and use it to help others find all the information they need to make it a success!
