#32035 Does anyone use wind meters?

Posted by steveb on 17 October 2008 - 11:46 AM

I've owned a couple of wind meters and used them to train my wind sense.
I'm now reasonably accurate at my local flying spots, as I've got the waves on the water, nearby trees, flags and sometimes smoke from chimneys to help me estimate the wind strength.
Once you've used one for a length of time, you will probably find that your own mental estimate is very close. It's very helpful for "calibrating" the back of your neck. ;)
