I’ve just looked at a thread about UAV Forecast minimum winds (Real world wind limits Phantom 4) which had something (but not what I wanted) about satellites.
For those of you unfamiliar with the software it comes in desktop browser or phone app flavour and the free version gives you details of wind speed at pre-selected heights, precipitation, cloud cover and satellite cover over the next 24 hours at your location and a colour-coded go/nogo indication.
The default settings can be changed so the cautious can set a maximum wind speed of 5mph and those who like sport mode can set it at 30.
Tomorrow morning looks good for my purposes except it’s telling me that not enough satellites will be available.
I’ve RTF Mavic Air manual and it gives no definition of adequate satellite numbers, it only talks about good signal strength. The thread I was looking at said the Phantom would fly with just 6 which seems low to me.
What is the minimum number of satellites that YOU would be prepared to risk flying your UAV with?
