About Goolge Earth Files Found on RCSpeeds

Many locations on RCSpeeds have Google Earh links. Most of Google Earth files have a DSMan, the groove, a small D80 flying in the standard direction and any four wheel drive roads shown on the hill. The little DS man standing on the hill is holding a radio with a red flag. You can use these files to help you find out how to get to the hill, were to fly, where to stand and more. The DS Man is standing in the correct place for DS. The files show the groove as a semitransparent purple volume and Joe Manors D80 flying in the mostly used direction for each hill. You will also see dirt roads in red and a small car shows where most people park their 2WD. The Weldon sample picture shows all these features.

If you have any or would like to make any please send us the Google Earth file and the name of its location.

If you don’t have Google Earth on your computer it’s easy to download. Download Google Earth 5.0 here...
