Simplify Your Logging

“The programmers have done a fantastic job of capturing the essence of the iPhone’s gestures, look, and feel. Whether it's the ‘pinch’ gesture to resize photos, the ‘shake’ that uses the iPhone's built-in accelerometers to start/stop timing, or using the standard iPhone’s buttons and menus to move around, any iPhone user will feel at home using this program in no time.”

“Worth A Closer Look”, Model Aviation

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 allows you to filter models, batteries, events, and other information with filtering expressions.

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. It can also operate away from the field by allowing you to log events manually.

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. The timer is optional and can be operated through gestures or through screen buttons.

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, 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.

New for version 5.0.x:

  • Major updates under the hood to modernize the database and UI code.
  • New database architecture.
  • Ability to filter items in the interface using complex criteria.
  • Additional tracking of information such as crashes, outcomes, and costs.
  • Expanded model statistics.
  • Expanded reporting to generate maintenance or event logs.
  • Better support for pilots.
  • Bug fixes, UI tweaks, and stability improvements.

RCLogbook requires an iOS device running iOS 9.1 or later. RCLogbook uses artwork from Fog City Design and Glyphish.
