If the satellites don't work then our GPS functions should also not work.  It would be cool if DJI could work w/ a database like that to warn pilots with a push notification when a huge Solar issue is coming that could adversely affect flight reliability and suggest to not fly than everyone fly like it's ok instead of finding out the hardway or asking questions as to what went wrong that cannot be answered?

Hello there AntDX316. Good day and thank you for posting these information. I will cascade these information to the designated DJI department for further attention. Thank you.

Forget about it, it's a total nothing burger.
Millions of drones have been flying for years but there still hasn't been a single flight incident that can be attributed to solar activity.

It would be cool if they could just implement it just incase.  Just incase some super high-solar event happens people are aware to not fly.  What if a strong EMP hits that disables many things.  It doesn't ever have to show up but it would be a cool feature to have, like airbags or some alert that no one ever turns on because it never ever happens.  It could be a cool easter egg to have just as long as it doesn't disrupt the other features of the drone that work 99.9% of the time flawlessly.

Yeah .. wouldn't that be cool.
And they should also have a warning when an alien invasion is imminent too.

We can only have warnings for so much then things start making no sense such as adding a sensor that a mosquito has landed on you, where it is, and if you don't get it off now you will get malaria or a bad itch.  Might as well add a warning that a rabbid bobcat is going to jump you and tear you up while you fly your drone minding your own business.  Might as well include imminent collision warnings that a vehicle has been in an accident is going to run you over if you do not take evasive action right now while flying in deep focus w/ your drone but who has warnings for that while standing up anyway.  Sometimes we just have to enter the afterlife or worse as we Should know we can't cover every single thing.  Even a stray bullet shot from afar can hit someone minding their own business that no anti-bullet trajectory system can avert them from such tragedy.  Paranoia is just a very high state of alertness of what is possible.  People just need to trust and ignore more.  We all can only do so much.  If powergrids go offline and no one can eat for 2 months+, if datacenters lose all our accounts and money tied to us, we go from there.  We can include every single possible thing that ever could go wrong and prove it's validation with it happening to someone around the world right now or has happened so no one can say we are making it up and it would never ever happen.  We shouldn't do too much but we also shouldn't do absolutely nothing, imo of course.  If people want to quit life as a human being on Earth or do nothing at all that is up to them.

You just listed lots of things we need no warnings about.
The Kp index for solar activity is another one of those things.

But if you are really interested in it to keep your paranoia and non-rational behaviour going, there are websites that give you the information.

On second thoughts, it might be a good thing for you.
I'd recommend never flying your drone if the Kp index is greater than 2.0.
Stay underground in your bunker and watch reruns of Doomsday Preppers to get lots of ideas for important things you should be worried about.
