    Found this interesting website and goes to show the west side of the CONUS certainly gets screwed when flying a drone. What prompted this was that I had a interests in filming my son's science trip on an educational vessel in Monterey but since the harbor is within 5 miles of a "military" facility no bueno to capture a cool looking send off for a 5th grade class.

    Yep. This map is also included in the "Hover" UAV news app. Not sure if there's an Android version though. The airports are misleading, like Joola mentioned.

    Wow! According to this map, I've been flying in a No-Fly Zone. Interesting.

    Yep, we have an Android version! Airports are tough to visualize as you need to give notice within the 5-mile radius around it. Thats why we decided to shade them yellow (we'll probably add a red 1.5M radius around the airport). You can find the control tower phone number by tapping the yellow circle.

    Useless for Northern Ireland. Our 4 main airports aren't even on the map!

    Also locks up when zoomed in on my S6. Uninstalled.
