You either pay $175 per year $17 per month for subscription. There are much better free websites on the internet.

What Garbage

1
I paid like $10 for this app a while back and now all of a sudden, they went subscription and I basically threw away $10. They should be banned from App Store for this crap. I would expect to at least be grandfathered into all the features I paid for. Enjoy horrible reviews from me for forever.

Says it has a seven day trial but yet blocked you out from your location

Giving it a spin...

As an RC pilot, this has been my favorite and most-used wind speed app for years. I'm not thrilled with the $3 per month subscription model introduced with the latest update, but I'm encouraged that the developer was quick to address a bug I encountered. I'm subscribing for the time being. It really is a great app, and it helps me identify optimal days to visit the flying field.

Should Not Be A Subscription App

This is a good app but it is not worth a $3 a month subscription. It needs to be a one time buy. All of its data is already free on other weather apps.

Money grab

"Free" to install. $3/month to use it. Won't give ANY info for free version. Lame.

Overpriced

This app when from free to $3.00 a month- maybe a one time fee but not reoccurring. Deleted.

Essential app for RC plane pilots.

I can check the wind speeds and forecasts at different airfields near me to decide if and where I want to take my planes out. What a great app!!

Will not load

It just sits in a continuous wait loop looking for sites. I guess I'll just wait for a bug fix...
