Excellent app for UAV pilots

I’ve only been flying for a month so everything is still pretty new to me. This app shows me exactly what I need to know for my flight planning purposes, and it does so with a really efficient and easy to read grid of information.

Pros:
> I can change thresholds for any of the weather or atmospheric metrics
> I can send a snapshot of the weather/forecast to myself to add to my flight log later
> The app is updated regularly. If you’re looking for sUAS apps (or any apps for that matter), check out the last time they were updated!
> I bought the subscription and I think having several days’ worth of data is worth the small price - helps a lot for planning flights for later in the week.

Cons:
> Not a con, but a feature request. Please consider adding a way to store a few favorite locations. I currently save GPS coordinates in a notepad page and paste them into search when trying to plan a flight, but favorites would be a little easier.

Overall excellent app for uav weather as long as they keep doing a great job keeping the app up to date and simple to use.

Good info

I want to support this app but the only way to do so is to spend a fortune. The subscription of basically useless info should be around $6.99 at most, not the twenty plus dollars they want to give to publicly available information.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback. With many subscribers paying every year for access to combined forecasts, GPS satellite data, and Kp index, I have no plans to reduce the cost. However, if you want to support the app, the best way to do so is to leave a positive review. We are, after all, providing an app with 24 hours of forecast data to countless users at no cost whatsoever. Thanks!

Inaccurate

This app is useless. At my location app states 100% cloud cover and states not good to fly. Looking outside maybe 50-60% cloud cover. Why is cloud cover a consideration in determining wether it is good to fly?

Developer Response ,

Cloudy days are not ideal for aerial photography. If you don't like that setting, you can disable it in the Threshold Settings page of the Settings tab.
