Flying drones for our team FlyingMikes, we've experienced weather being a deal breaker for shoots. When we first started, we thought that if no rain was in the forecast, then we were good to go. But we sure were wrong!
We ran into weather conditions that didn’t allow safe flying and our ability to capture beautiful videos.
1) Traveling to a location and realizing that we couldn’t fly because the winds were too strong to fly. 2) Cloud coverage being too much for the video scene we had in mind.
Using existing weather apps, we could get a sense of the weather conditions we needed, but it was tedious. We just wanted something quick. And so we started thinking why not just create our own weather app that focus on drone pilots as the core user.
And our intent is to continue building this app with the help of fellow droners.
We want to send a special thanks to Forecast.io for offering their weather API. They provide the weather data that we then translate into web app.
It’s free until we become famous. So please, let’s get famous and pay people our dues :)
