My name is Cynthia.
I recently acquired a drone, but I haven’t had the opportunity to fly it yet. I reside in Exeter, and I’m wondering if you could suggest a suitable location where I can practice flying my drone safely. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Cynthia @akichiak and welcome to GADC
I’m from Exeter and often go to this playing field near Isca Academy.
It’s usually empty in the evenings and plenty of space if there’s a few people playing football casually.
My partner Amy often comes and spots for me. If you want to join us one evening you’re most welcome.
Welcome Cynthia to GADC
A few miles north of you in the Taunton area.
Please join the @group-southwest and you will get updated with anything happening in the area.
@akichiak Hi Cynthia welcome to the club
That’s would be nice
But is my first time use a drone
Is this ok…?
Sure, that’s absolutely fine, no worries at all.
Quite happy to just be a spotter and talk through any questions you might have.
Later in the week from Wednesday works best, just let us know when works for you.
