Why’s dronescene & drone assist so different?

Because DroneScene defaults to not show Class-D Airspace (but that layer is available to be switched on) … since it doesn’t impact our flying below 400ft.

Apart from following the Drone Code in general, and specifically avoiding the prison and the airport, there are lots of place to fly around Edinburgh…

Napier University from Craiglockhart Hill (West):

Hermitage of Braid, near Morningside:

The two Forth road bridges:

And you can see my film of a flight near The Braids here:
