the code is on github:

Enjoy and have a safe flight!

  • no it will not be available for Apple HW as I do not support such closed and locked down stuff

  • Just downloaded it, thanks very much.
    Will it be available for iExpensive devices sometime? ;-)

  • No - no plans to do it for chrome - in the browser it is easy just to visit the website - they also have embed images for websites http://www.n3kl.org/sun/status.html

    N3KL.ORG: Solar activity monitor

    plans to make it work on Chrome? 

    Also, Mission Planner should be able to do the same thing with that data source... would be a nice thing. 

    Thanks for doing it. 


  • Yea - I am where the drones are ;-)

  • Installed! as soon as i find my phone I'll take a look.  Where does it pull the storm data from? is it a standardized place or something you maintain?
