Beacon Park Golf Course Skelmersdale (Abandoned)

Had to see what all the fuss was about with this place, so myself and @Howard78 made the trip across the pennines to see @PingSpike and @Sparkyws this morning

Loved it, loads of space, no bother from anyone and a pretty good breakfast in the cafe too.

Great for FPV and flying cameras too

Thanks for the breakfast this morning guys, nice one :+1:t2:

Great filename :smiley:

I wasn’t on doggy day care duty today so I was able to fly rather than just run an excited wolf around a field all day like I do at most meet ups :blush:

That’s a great shot, mid-turn too :blush:

Hmm, good point, Magnaflow exhausts ftw :smiley:

The amount of metadata it captures is pretty good, the FLIR tools software can pick out the dew point and humidity values too. Still finding / stumbling my way around it.

That carpark looks like a winner.

It is absolutely a great place, nice flat landing zones for wings, and as you say not a lot of bother from anyone. Been there loads, glad you guys came over for it :slight_smile:

No gaps ?

This does look like a good location for us with the parking of the car so close…

I’ll add a parking and flight marker to beacon golf , it’s a minute away

Added a marker for the country park next door to the golf course you can fly from the boot of your car, golf course is a minutes drive away
