Drone Buddy is a handy iPhone/iPad app built for drone pilots. It provides accurate local weather information. We drone pilots know wind speed is key factor for flying drone, so we design the wind information into our app. Also we show other key planetary index info, e.g. kp index, visibility, cloud cover, uv index, local sunrise and sunset time. Tap map to see no fly zone. With update to date airspace and no fly zone info, it's safety critical to check the app before your flight. Also you can switch units between imperial and metric in setting, show wind speed at mph, km/h, m/s, knot. No fly zone data api is provided by Airmap.

A very good and useful tool, needs a few things.

A great tool for drone pilots for a basic reference, paying to remove ads helps A LOT but if you don't want to pay it's usable. Phone numbers for most airports are listed if you need to gain permission however some of the descriptions don't display properly. OverAll it's really great but more information would be helpful.


Want to love it.

I really want to give it 5 stars but the feature that it claimed to have seems to not really be there at all and that's the flight tower information. The help section says to simply tap on that airspace and the information would pop up if it has a flight tower but nothing happens. I tried locations for the entire map of the U.S. but nothing.


Handy Dandy Wind Speed Tool

I use Drone Buddy everyday before I fly. Drone Buddy helps me make my decision not only if i can fly due to wind speed, but also where am I located to an airport. The precipitation reading and the hours of sunrise and sunset make this app a complete and easy to use tool. Thank you Drone Buddy
