CAUTIONARY: Cloud and rain could well render the weekend not flyable. BE EXTRA CAREFUL if attempting to fly! ALWAYS KEEP A BACK DOOR OPEN - especially when flying adjacent the mountains! KEEP AN EYE ON THE CLOUD BASE! The conditions can change fast! ##


Weather Flying Tip: REMEMBER: The MOST under-utilised flying safety technique is a PRECAUTIONARY LANDING!! Don't be afraid to conduct a precautionary landing if caught out with nowhere to turn! :shock:

What's REALLY cool is if you work through THESE tips when on the EarthWindsMap! :shock:

First, click on the link for the LIVE site: http://earth.nullschool.net/#current/wi ... 31.76,1821

Then:

1. Click anywhere on the map to get coordinates and wind speed/direction
