Sure, why not? Especially if you fly a P3 or P4, which can fly fine in 19 mph wind gusts. Be watchful, however, of NFZ around the local airports. I recall seeing something somewhere around a no-fly ordinance that Barstow has enacted.
That's weird we don't have an airport in Barstow
Ya do now
The best way to check the wind speed where you are... is to walk outside, watch the trees, and then decide
Wind speeds will vary at different altitudes and may be non existent at ground level or at the height you want to fly.
I like to just go up and use atti .
We have short trees Reed
I don't see any impediments near Barstow on the section map until you get east to the Barstow-Daggett air space and north into an Alert area, and northwest a few miles into Restricted Area R-2515. And here is the URL to Barstow Ordinance 942-2015 which details what you cannot do with a drone in Barstow: http://www.barstowca.org/home/showdocument?id=3372
I was literally reading that same thing right before I came back here hahaha. Thanks guys. I've flown a few places in town and nobody has said anything. But then again I don't fly around people I go out in the middle of the desert or I hover in my back and front yard.
Except for a parachute area, looks like you have some wide open, interesting air space along CA 247 (?) south of you between Barstow and Lucerne Valley.
Parachute area? There is alot of open space. Literally surrounded my miles and miles of open desert
Have a look at the LA Sectional map.
Yup, everything is shorter in Mississippi right haha... Do the leaves still blow across the ground? Watching the wind yourself is a lot more accurate then staying inside and believing the weather channel, just say'in. I have no choice but to watch the trees here. Trees really are a lot bigger in California, I just forgot
Not everything brother but I'm the same way . I use no weather apps only my bald head for the rain and eyes to watch what it is doing .
It's easy to tell .
We do have lots of big trees but those would fit inside those
