Looks like a great idea I live in Maine and saw that one of the biggest RC shops isnt listed. Do I PM you with a link to the site?

Funnily enough the RCGroups app has all of the locations in NSW. I assumed this was a web version of that.

All you have to do to add a location is go to the Maps page and right click your location.
You can then add all the information related to that site.
After you add the location a moderator will approve it and it will show up on our Maps page and Places page.
Here is what you see when you right click a location:


I added the info for my local field. Any member on the site can do the same:

Here is one explanation on how to find members near you:

Here is an image showing how to do that on the Places page:

I did this once. You do a member search with your zip code and it finds the closest ones. I made some contacts this way. Some people don't want to be bothered and others are more open to meeting others with the addiction!

I am trying to add a field to your places. When I right click it does nothing.

Great idea! Thanks RC Groups

Never mind, I was being dumb. I had trouble because It was to easy to figure out!

Thanks
