    Hi,

    Noticed that the KP Index is well over 6 for today.

    Has anyone had any issues with their flight or has all drones with GNS guidance decided that it's too hot today?

    :eek:

    In my case it's the Campaign Against Aviation (CAA) ;-)

    Can solar activity be regional or does the index change quite quickly (as in KPI 6.5 one minute and then over 7 the next)?
    Just interested as I'm new to all things UAV.
    KB, where were you when you took that reading?
    Thanks for all your replies btw.

    i think the KP index being one half point apart dose not really matter . if you phone app said it is OK to fly i would not worry even though some flyers have said they will only fly if the KP index is 2 or less and then a lot of people don't even care about the index high or low . last Thursday the index was at 7 and a little latter at a 9 , that's the highest i have seen it , i chose not to fly because the wind was also gusting all day .
