    Just got home after having been out looking for Northern Lights. Saw nothing this time, but a drone was out flying, followed it with my eyes over a lake 2-3km away before it went down for landing on the other side..
    I started thinking about where I put my popcorn bag.. [​IMG]

    There are always people who can raise the tension, when nothing happens and you are bored.

    I chose to hide all of my doomsday communication equipment in a Faraday cage. I hid my photo backup in a subterranean bunker with grounded copper clad walls and wore my tinfoil hat just in case.

    Is it safe to come out of the bunker yet or shall I give it a couple of weeks for the hoards of looters to die of hunger?

    seriously though, its good to see a headsup for people who care. Those who dont care about this will eventually live to regret it.

    Be carefull anyway when checking. As a flew on 01/01 at noon.
    UAVforecast said it was Kp4 and on swpc.noaa it was 6->5 and i t afternoon it went to 4.
    i had 16sat's for my first fly after update [AC 1.5] and no anomalities.
    even did a MapsEasy and DroDep test...fine '16 start

    Question
    I did a test flight from a small boat yesterday. I only made one because I was getting intermittent poor radio signal warnings. I stopped flying but was wondering if the solar eruption you warned of might have been the cause. Or was it more likely the metal railings and bimini top on the boat that was the culprit. I powered up when I got home and no warning.

    More likely the latter - the storm has passed now and didn't really cause any major concerns.

    Uninstall app, then reinstall again - This will solve it.
