I did not think you were permited to fly here, is it permited or not?

What was it that made you think that you couldn’t?

Yes definitely ok, spoke with the Council warden, just asked that we follow the drone code


@mickydd how goes it my old friend, long time no see

I think it was something on the DJI app the made it seem restricted

Cool thanks I will give it a go

All good Mick, getting old though (the kids too)

Look out for the NW meet, rumoured @sparkman999 is attending

Will be good to catch up


When i Went last week the council warden came over offered me a copy of the drone code and
asked me not to fly into the tower if possible😜 . He was fine and explained Kirklees council don’t have a policy on stoping you flying.Just be mindful of your surroundings and other people …

ok I owe you a lunch Mick if that’s an incentive

Yeh we have the same back in 2018 when post was done i had just done Pfco and had it with me so he was ok with that

You’ve owed me that lunch for 3 years.
Looking forward to it.

When I lived in Almondbury, Castle Hill was always my spot for taking photo’s of any car I might been selling, a great place and less than a mile from my old home

Does that mean you want extra chips and a slice of bread too…
