I have been having issues with winds updating straight after takeoff.
I can tell that the weather is updating as cloud formations are changing but with winds - FSrealWX doesn't seem to update these. In cruise I can have winds of 207 @ 6 knots which is unrealistic.
I normally ...
1) Load FS9
2) Load my aircraft at my departure airport (inc. gate)
3) Load my flight plan
4) Go to desktop and load FSrealWX ... let it auto connect etc
5) Click on Set [icao] WX as this seems to be the only way to get the weather loaded correctly currently
6) Let FSrealWX run in the background
Am I doing something wrong?
My settings are as follows:
Weather Tab (read left to right top, then left to right bottom):
Server location = DE / NOAA
Weather Update interval in min = TICKED / 15
No weather updates for height <= TICKED / 3000ft
Xplane settings = left as default (dist. 20nm, time 10 min)
Set WX from Position in NM = 200nm
Weather modes = Normal
Create new weather station = left as default (ticked)

You do not use Set ICAO WX. This option is for reserve only. there, if the weather at the airport is not right, then the weather for the airport is set directly.
"Connect" and "Download WX" should be enough.
