Apps Every Drone Pilot Needs: UAV Forecast

Besides the DJI Go4 app, there are some additional apps every drone pilot needs. One of these is UAV Forecast which will let you quickly check the weather. The app is easy to use and available for free for both iOS and Android devices.

Some people would argue that you don't really need a weather app to determine if it is a good day to fly. Just stick your head outdoors and look. They have a point, but what if I want to know what the weather is like 50 miles away before I drive there? Or what if I want to know how hard the wind is blowing at 150 feet up? That's why I use this app every time I fly. One quick glance tells me what you need to know. You can set the thresholds for the various parameters in the settings panel. You can also view a two day forecast (seven days if you upgrade to the premium version). A feature I check regularly is the Wind Profile which shows wind speeds at various altitudes. UAV Forecast also has a map showing flight restrictions, but I find the one in AirMap to be easier to use.
