Drone Buddy is a must-have app for drone pilots, providing accurate weather information and no-fly zone maps to help you fly safely and responsibly. Designed by drone hobbyists for drone hobbyists, Drone Buddy has all the features you need to plan and execute your drone flights with confidence.

Our no-fly zone maps cover worldwide airports, US, UK, Canada national parks, and FAA UAS flight restriction areas. With specific no-fly zone parameters, you can customize your settings to your preference and adjust airport circle range based on your level and certificate. Easily switch between imperial and metric units in the settings to suit your needs.

The Where to Fly Drone feature is a crowd-sourced platform where drone pilots can submit their favorite flying sites with descriptions and photos. The Drone Buddy community benefits from these submissions, making it easy for you to find new and exciting places to fly your drone.

The Open Drone News page provides the latest news in the drone industry, so you can stay up to date with new technologies, regulations, and trends.

Drone Buddy Pro Subscription offers advanced features such as hourly and daily wind forecasts, advanced weather and cloud coverage data, color-coded signals for bad flying conditions, DJI no-fly zone maps, custom map circle distances, and advanced airport data. Your subscription will automatically renew each year at the current rate, and you can manage your subscription in the Account Settings.

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!

Needs ad support for free options

All of the main features are free via many sources. Pro is enticing but to keep me hooked, you should offer the basic weather pulled from free sources with advertising support. Make me use the free portion desiring your pro options. Give me a reason to pay $30. Perhaps a one day free here and there to see what $30 purchases. No metar or ctac live radio to listen near restricted areas. Simple api and would lean me in to having a single source worthy of $50 annually.
