Check your settings, particularly Wind Altitude and Include Gusts. You need to decide for yourself how high you are flying, what the capabilities of your UAV are, and whether you care about gusts or just average speed. Wind speed is substantially higher at altitude, so the Wind Altitude setting is particularly important to check carefully.
I see. Thanks. I'm new to drones and drone flying. I mainly got one so that I can shoot aerial footage for my short films. It turns out I'm better off getting the Part 107 license so I can have more choices of where to fly. In the meantime, I'm trying to find a wide open area away from people so that I can hopefully practice flying my new drone and get the hang of it.
UAVForecast.com uses a proprietary model to simulate the expected number of GPS satellites you will be able to lock, given the following factors:
The number of GPS satellites visible in the sky (filtered by the elevation mask).The time of day: ionospheric interference with GPS is worse at night.Your latitude and longitude: ionospheric interference is worse close to the equator.The current or forecast Kp index.
Note that the estimate is just that - an estimate - and the actual number you see will vary according to local conditions, random fluctuations in the ionosphere, and so on.
