    Hey,
    I have the UAV Forecast app on my phone. Everything says it is ok to fly, except cloud cover. I know how to change the setting for cloud cover. Mine currently is set at 80%.
    The reason for this thread is to ask….does cloud cover REALLY matter for flying your Phantom? I'm also talking about normal cloud cover (not thunderstorm type cloud cover)

    It hasn't affected my flying at all. It does, however, affect the photos.

    You can change the UAV Forecast app cloud cover in the settings menu

    Cloud cover is a GOOD thing because I can see my monitor easier!

    Thanks guys. I know how to change the cover, I just wasn't sure if there was a reason for it or not. After reading the replies, I changed mine to 100, now the clouds can't tell me when to fly. Hahahahaha
