    Not seen this posted on the forum and is quite a useful little tool!

    Type in your location or address, customize the fields for your personal preferred thresholds and the site will do the rest for you and give you a flying forecast! :)

    That's weird... it does for me?

    Try putting in www.uavforecast.com manually into your address bar....See if that works.

    Definitely a useful tool! Thanks Editor. I also favorited UAV Forecast on Facebook. There you will find clear explanations posted on all of the parameters and settings for it. Even has some links on how some of the wind algorithms are calculated at elevation if you're curious to know.

    Great tool, thanks for sharing that. Really handy that you can input your own parameters. It's gone straight onto my "favourites" bar! :)

    Mine, too. This would make a great app for the tablets used in flight.

    Another excellent URL is the "Surface Elevation Tool" found by Michael Morris.
    Solwise - Surface Elevation Tool

    Drop two pins in on the google map and it returns the elevation between them, great for LOS.

    Sorry I cannot find the sticky to post there (Editor!!!)
