    The National Weather Service has predicted solar flare activity for the weekend starting on Friday September 19, 2014. Experts say this activity can have an effect on GPS dependent functions. Sounds like a good time to keep the Phantoms grounded.

    Lots of discussion on this topic... the effect is pretty minute - still something to be aware of as your using the bird.

    The sky is falling - the sky is falling.
    We've heard so many of these warnings but no evidence of any effect on anything.
