And here is a website where you can keep an eye on approaching solar storms as they impact Earth across several days, if interested. Click on the "Details" tab for an explanation of what is being shown in the animation.
Too late for me...
K index=1 this morning in dayton, oh.... how can we get any BETTER than that?
edit: I may be remembering YESTERDAY morning reading.... sorry. I had never seen a K=1 before,
Sorry for your loss.
Are you saying you think there's a link to the K-index and your crash?
Well, I'm no expert, but I doubt if solar interference can cause a complete shut down. If anything, it could mess with the GPS and throw that out of whack and send it off in an unintended direction, but the altitude is determined by the barometer and I don't think that would be affected. Sounds more like a sudden disconnect from the power source if it just fell (did it just tumble?) from the air.
Yes, it tumbled. However, the WiFi was still on when I found it and the battery is atill at about 80%. I had only flown for about 4 minutes.
Could be the battery was fine but maybe contacts were dirty? Although that would shut down the wifi too. All it has to do is have a motor or ESC go bad in the air and you're toast.
What k-index are you looking at? This one is off the chart for a good part of today. Intensity can change pretty quickly from hour to hour.
I'm showing a frikkin K7 right now in Maryland
send me ur file and I will make it work and return it to u.
I've read an article today that said as far south as Washington DC (in the darker countryside) might be able to see the edge of the aurora on the horizon. So that's pretty intense. But, again, I'm guessing you had catastrophic mechanical/electrical failure today independent of the solar activity.

K-Index lite for android in play store from BizzTrade....
it is showing 7 right now also but was 1 when I looked this morning sometime.....
I give upl some of my 300mhz x10 alarm door switch transmitters can not make the short jump to the alarm box tonight. this has not happened for a month or more. I believe it is function of hi solar flares. I never knew of Kp index before getting a drone and blamed it on something WPAFB did every few months!
What are some good apps for iPhone to monitor magnetic activity?
I use 'Magnetology' for iOS iPhones & iPads. Free and works well.

I was at 7 this morning, it is 6 now tonight.
I didn't notice Hover had that. Checked my Hover app and it is 2 numbers higher than the other I use. I wonder which one is correct.
The most powerful this solar cycle.
