Drone Buddy is a handy mobile app built for drone pilots. It provides accurate weather and planetary information for drone flying. Since windspeed is key factor for flying drone, so we design an intuitive windspeed dashboard. Drone Buddy also shows kp index, visibility, cloud cover, uv index, local sunrise and sunset time etc. With update to date airspace and no fly zone info, it's safety critical to check the app before your flight.
Truly international, pilots will definitely want to download Drone Buddy before traveling. Switch units between imperial and metric in setting, and get real-time feedback of airspace rules and conditions pertaining to your flight specifications, with national rule sets for over 20 countries. Drone Buddy integrates Safety-Critical no fly zones and temporary flight restriction maps through Airmap.
Drone Buddy Chat lets drone pilots connect with other local drone pilots through the app: sharing good drone flying spots and flying knowledge.

Ratings and Reviews
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
Great App! Even the Free Version
I needed a simple app that would tell me the cloud coverage and wind speeds prior to drone flights. I tried 10+ weather apps and all of them had the wind feature hidden behind many steps whereas this app has the wind speed on the main page as soon as you open it. Perfect. I have not tried the paid version yet but seeing how great the free version is I’m motivated to buy.
Useful for drone pilots
This is an app with actual utility. I like the wind and sunshine hours information. The maps with the restricted zones help make this a one stop shop app for planning my drone flights. I also like the idea of the local chat with others, it should be useful when I travel to new places and have questions.
