Hello guys, I am a newbie from Yorks in terms of droning, I have previously only flown some toy drones, but I recently got the Mavic Mini, so I am looking forward to flying it. I am currently an international uni student and I am limited to city transport when searching for destinations, as well as biking. I’ll be really grateful if anyone could give me a tip as to where I can fly my drone around York, as I have been researching for days and I still haven’t come up with anything. Looking forward to interacting with you all
Dont fly on campus
Hi and welcome. I’m from York. Thee are a few places within bus routes to fly.
Enjoy and fly safe.
Welcome to GADC I am sure one of the mods will be along soon to formally eelcome you on board
Hi Stoil / @SNFox, and welcome to GADC.
An ever increasing number of our members also own the Mavic Mini … so you are amongst good company.
If you haven’t already, take a look at the Map of Members and you’ll see there are a few other members in your neck of the woods, some of whom I’m sure will come and say Hi.
(Don’t forget to add yourself to that map : How to add yourself to the Members Map )
The forum’s search functions are a very efficient way to find previous threads and posts that might already have covered topics in which you are interested in learning more or answer that niggling question but, when this doesn’t turn up what you’re after, there’s a wealth of knowledge amongst the members, so ask away over on #questions-and-answers.
Also, if you’ve not seen it, check out our map of places where members have flown in the past … which, obviously, doesn’t necessarily mean they are still OK to fly and, as always, any pilot needs to check that everything’s OK before flying at any of them.
Welcome to the forum. As for flying around York I think the racecourse might be suitable. I know some members of my model flying club have who live out that way have informally flown from there.
Welcome to GADC Stoil @SNFox.
Welcome @SNFox I’m only a bus ride away, I think it’s the X45/46 !! I’m not far from Pocklington, plenty of open fields to practice!
Hi and welcome @SNFox
Glad you have had some suggestions as where to fly.
Enjoy the forum!
Welcome to the best drone site there is.
