Do you guys limit flights when the KP Index is over 4. NOAA usually issues alerts around then. Just wondering if you guys even worry about it.

So far it seems the whole K-index thing is hyped and not a big issue.
It's about GPS may be affected .. but if it is, it is only going to be to a very minor effect, like a couple of feet.
So far I'm not aware of anyone having observed any significant effect on GPS or Phantom flying.

This post has some real info for anyone interested:
