Drone Buddy is a handy app built for drone pilots. It provides accurate weather information for your flight. We drone pilots know wind speed is a key factor for flying drones, so we built it into our app. Besides wind, we also pull other key planetary data, such as KP index, visibility, sunrise and sunset time. Tap map to see no fly zone. We integrate no fly zone maps from various sources including worldwide airports, seaplane port, balloon port, US national park, and FAA UAS flight restriction area. As pilots, you can adjust the airport's circle range based on your level and certificate. We have very specific no fly zone parameters and you can custom them at your preference. Easily you can switch units between imperial and metric in setting, show wind speed at mph, km/h, m/s, knot.

Drone Buddy Where to Fly Drone Feature is a crowd sourced project that any drone pilots can submit an awesome site with description and photo, and our drone buddy community can benefit with those spots information.

Fantastic and helpful app!

I own and run a small production company that specialize in a few different things. We do a lot of videos for real estate company’s to help them advertise their available properties, we also take Aerial photographs and videos of airports and construction sites for civil engineers and architects (I’m about to make my point haha). All of these things involve flying drones! This app has become one of the most important apps for me and my drone crew!
Super easy to use, and give us all the available information we need to make sure we have a safe and relatively easy flight every time!
If you fly commercially or just for the hell of it I highly recommend this app!

all nicknames are taken btw ,

Amazing and really intuitive

I live in a place where the wind could be perfectly still but have extreme gusts out of no where, I’ve learned to expect these but Drone Buddy makes it so much easier to monitor wind for its accuracy and it has probably saved me from tons of crashes that would have happened otherwise. The new UI makes it so much easier to use and looks stunning, I hope everyone can give the review I can because this app is great and I hope you think that too👍🏼

Useless without subscription

There is nothing indicating that a purchase must be made before downloading the app. When an app is free to download but has locked features that you pay to unlock then the App Store says “In-app purchase available” which this doesn’t say. It also does say anything about paying for services in the description. I opened the app and it tells me wind speed daylight hours and a map that shows my location with some very limited flight information. It shows me where airports are and that’s it. It doesn’t allow me to search or give any information regarding the current locations flight status. There are other free apps that offer more information like the actual FAA app that provides regulation information flight plans and device registration. What does this app do? Nothing that I can’t do without it
