Hi all, I just wanted to let everyone kno ( tho I am sure there are many that have one or even this one) that I found a cool weather app called UAV Forecast in the app store. You can set your Threshold setting like height, amount of sats, temp wind conditions, and it will do the rest. It uses your location, checks weather conditions and tells you if its good to fly with the limits you have set, check it out

Yeah, great app. Though the in-app upgrade to unlock the 7-day hourly forecast is a bit steep. Not to mention, the payment is only good for a 1-yr subscription, not a one-time payment.

I also have Hover (backup to UAV Forecast) and Yahoo! Weather (for 5-day or 10-day forecast).

Aloha Heebus,

     Yes, it is a good site, even over here in Hawai'i.  I have been using it for months now and they do cover their ass well.  Once when it was "iffy" I almost flew, then checked the site and it said it was 100% chance of rain!  Sure enough, it was raining out the window.  Good one!

Aloha and Drone On!

Used the free app for months now, usually very accurate. The odd bug on getting location. If buy the full app, but the price isn't justified. Lower it and they'll make a packet from drone operators. All in all, I love it.

Seems related to a low strength/slow internet connection. Does it on every device I've tested. I'm fine as long as I have solid internet, the moment it's anywhere flaky (even though browsing works) it can show 'unknown location' - probably a timeout to their servers. Excellent app though and I'd urge everyone to give it  ago.
