Be sure to check out or look over the user’s guide or ask us — the app does many things that some of the reviews claim it does not (for example, importing old flights, logging without the timer, having to shake the device to operate the timer, etc).

RCLogbook is an iOS application designed by an RC pilot for RC modelers who need a convenient and effortless logging solution for their RC models and batteries.

Once you enter some basic information about your models and batteries (such as names, capacities, photos, propellers, and so on), RCLogbbok takes over to help you capture and edit information on flights (or races) such as the total time, location, notes, or average current draw. RCLogbook is designed to integrate seamlessly with your modeling by traveling with you to the flying field, racetrack, or lake. RCLogbook provides a timer allowing you to update your logs as you fly or race your models.

With RCLogbook, you can keep a log of each flight or race that includes the duration, notes, location, propeller, style, fuel and the batteries that were used. RCLogbook automatically tracks the total time on the model, number of flights, and so on. RCLogbook‘s built-in timer is fully integrated with the tracking making it easy to gather information. The timer supports count up and down modes and can use voice or musical chimes to let you know when you need to think about bringing your model back. You can also directly enter events without using the timer if you want.

RCLogbook tracks battery charge and discharge cycles including per-pack and per-cell resting voltages, per-pack and per-cell internal resistances, discharge durations, charge amounts, and storage charge state. RCLogbook automatically updates discharge information at the end of a flight or race and can compute the average current draw during the flight or race. Using this information, you can watch the health of your batteries thorough a number of battery performance plots.

To make logging even easier, on 720P-capable devices, RCLogbook can generate barcodes and use a built-in barcode scanner to select batteries and models for events.

RCLogbook also supports maintenance logs and checklists allowing you to keep up to date on keeping your models in top shape.

“The programmers have done a fantastic job of capturing the essence of the iPhone's gestures, look, and feel.” — "Worth A Closer Look", Model Aviation, February 2009
