Windsock - Advanced UAV weather forecasts

Vivid Reflection
As a pro perhaps you've already found that packing the flight gear and driving down to the park only to find it's too windy to fly can be frustrating. Instead use this tool to drop markers down on a map and get the latest wind readings, rain, daylight, visibility info plus more for a nearby location so you know if it's great weather at sunset for your activity or even if it's great right now - find those perfect flying weather windows!

** Warning: This app is a subscription-only app and requires a monthly subscription to access these powerful features - details below ***

Get access to premium data that uses the power of satellites, radar and local weather stations all over the world to deliver advanced wind and condition forecasts for your favourite drone flying sites. Let's be clear, this isn't one of those basic freebie weather apps! Windsock tracks over 14 forecast metrics from multiple aggregated data sources. Forecasts are up to 7 days in advance with high-resolution forecasts every hour on demand for almost anywhere in the world.


15 forecast metrics - displayed in 4 easy to understand data panels - summary, visibility, air and precipitation.

Grab forecasts for your current location without even having to add it as a site.

Generate a full audible report of the current conditions and have it read out to you hands-free, just shake your device if you have location enabled.

Quickly find out when sunset is so you know exactly how much daylight you have remaining.

Create a wind condition rule and get tick marks next to wind conditions that match. Great for visual scanning!

Wind graphs are just a touch away and can even be printed using AirPrint.
