Group Details

RC Airplane Pilots

I am interested in starting a group for RC Air and boat pilots can use and share stories and advice. I shared Windy to our club Facebook's page everyone loves it - https://www.facebook.com/Chippewa-Falls-Model-Airplane-Club-546569062104500/

  • When and How to Create a New Group

    Groups can gather people of similar focus and/or similar locations.

    • The “Groups” section displays the same content as is displayed in the Categories >> Topics, depending on who is a member of what group.
    • Every user can pick a “Badge” related to a group (only one of the groups they're in) and issue it on their profile. This can be set via >> Profile >> Edit Profile >> Group Title.
    • There is no other special function of the “Groups” section – and therefore no reason to get crazy setting new groups. :-)

    If you want to create a new group, please do your best to follow this procedure:

    1. Check if there is a similar group already existing.
    • If it is, join that group. Please do not create a duplicate group just with a slightly different meaning or title.
    • If it’s not, you can create a new group.
    • If there’s a group referring to an activity in a very general way, while you’d like to specify a location for that activity etc., you can create a new group with a geographic specification in the group name.
    1. Don’t create a non-sense group name. Such groups will be deleted instantly.

    2. Use English (or universal, internationally readable) words in the group name.

    • In case you use a different language, whether in Latin, Cyrillic, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese or any other letters, make sure to include (in brackets) an English translation of the group name.
    • In case the group name refers to a geographic location (state, city, mountain, river, etc.), make sure to include (in brackets) the full name of the country concerned.
      --> Example: מזג אויר רכס ארסוף (Weather in Arsuf, Israel) ; 台灣地震分析 (Taiwan Seismic Analysis) .
    1. If you can, set your group as Public, not Private. Otherwise, we will set it as Public.

    2. Upload a cover picture which best describes the activity and/or location that your group refers to. If you don’t, we will upload one.
      --> Tip: You can use pictures that you took, or free photos from Unsplash.com.

    If you don’t respect these rules (or at least try to), we will keep deleting any duplicate and/or non-sense groups. We really want to keep the “Groups” section clear and comfortable for everyone.

    Thank you for understanding & enjoy!


    UPDATE: For the reasons mentioned above, we have recently disabled the option to create new groups.

    If you want to create a new group, please let me know its purpose and the title, and I will create it for you (or not). :)

  • Suggestion: add LightPollutionMap to Windy

    It would be great to combine all the windy maps with a new layer of the amount of light in place.

    https://www.lightpollutionmap.info/#zoom=4&lat=5759860&lon=1619364&layers=B0FFFFTFFFF

    It's just a sugestion. Greetings.

  • RE: Altitude bar doesn't disappear / show correct values iOS 11.1.1.: Safari, iOS Windy App, iPhone 6 ; Android 7.0. Honor 9: Windy App, Chrome

    The same for Android 7.0 (Samsung Galaxy J3 2017) : Windy app, Chrome, Firefox (and Samsung Internet).

    Note: When I click on a different Forecast model, the bar slider moves a little bit, but the value of the altitude stays the same.

    Note 2: On Android - the Windy app & all browsers do remember the set-up altitude for 'Wind, Temperature, Dew Point and Humidity' (and also those other layers for which it should not remember & show).
