Hello from North Warwickshire

Hi everyone.

New to drones, but have decided to go in deep with a DJI Mini 2 as my first drone.

Looking for places to photo around the area as well as main Warwickshire, West Midlands and Staffordshire.

Will be looking at checking out Cannock Chase, Chasewater and perhaps Kingsbury Water Park but not sure I’m allowed there as website says no hobbyist drones! :frowning: which I guess means even the Mini 2 is out.

Hoping to also join some groups, have joined the West Midlands group on Facebook as well as the Tamworth one.

Any other recommendations be it groups, old posts or places to photo in the area? I look forward to reading your posts and hopefully contributing more.

Hi Adrian, welcome from the Black Country.

Beware of strange men wearing pink tutus, that’s all I can say!

Cannock Chase is fine, the council there have no policies or byelaws against UAVs, Walsall is the same. Lichfield on the other hand don’t like them at all (Chasewater) but can’t stop you flying over as long as you don’t use their land for TO and landing. If the Water Park is in B’ham council controlled area, you’re in the same boat.
