I've got the UAV forecast app and find it very useful.
What wind parameters do we think are sensible for the app?
For example, it's showing 28 mph gusts here which is red for flight but I'm looking out of the window and am thinking "I'd fly in this". Maybe the big gusts come when I'm not looking

Yeah, it was, it didn't seem to be using much power working against the wind either.
We're in the Chilterns HIlls (some of the highest places in southern England) so we are already quite high up and it gets very gusty here, but the drone coped just fine.
I'm not sure how much over 30 MPH I'd go. Only one way to find out!
