Hi from Tooting, south london

Hi all, just got my Mavic Air and now all charged and ready to fly when I can find a legal place near me.
Hoping somewhere closer than Richmond park but that maybe my closest.
Cheers, Jase

Hi, again, @JK-London - thanks for adding yourself to the map. :+1:


#4

All good… already found a couple of people local and a closer fly zone so awesome so far!!
Cheers :beers:


#5

Welcome to the forum. Hope you have many happy hours of flying, you’ve got a great aircraft there. Very portable, unobtrusive with a fantastic camera.


#6

Thanks mate :+1:
Looking forward to getting it in the air…


#7

Hello and welcome.


#8

Welcome
I think you can fly on Mitcham common someone on here does I’ve flown in Beddington Park in the week when there’s no football matches on I think you can fly in Morden park there is model aircraft on Epsom downs you would have to check that out


#9

Great, cheers. Wasn’t sure about Mitcham common. I thought the edge of Tooting Bec common was also an okay place. I’ve checked the NATS app and it’s just outside the no fly zone but it’s a bit of a gamble and I really don’t want to upset the Rozzers… :wink:
Cheers
Jase


#10

Right, watched everything, all charged and updated and it’s blue skies so I’m off to Beddibgton park now and see how I get on. Will do the 30m training first I reckon… just to be safe :wink:
Cheers

#12

Hey Scorps,
Thanks for coming down for my inaugural flight!! Really appreciated the support and spotting mate.
Had a great couple of flights and the footage is terrible so plenty of learning and work to do!!
Cheers mate!

Hi @JK-London and welcome to Grey Arrows :wave:t2:

I (mis)spent a lot of my childhood in Tooting :slight_smile:

I’d have suggested Figgs Marsh but then also looked at the Drone Assist app to find that also falls inside a massive red NFZ :roll_eyes:

What about Mitcham Common? @liamski flies there with no issues :+1:t2:


#14

Hi Jason welcome to the forum
See it’s great how we help one another out I had similar when I did my first flight someone to spot and talk you though with your money in the air and hope it lands in one piece.


#15

#17

Over the moon with my Mavic 2 Pro, hope to have a flight tomorrow morning at low tide here in Blackpool.
Er?, anyone in the area fancy a meet up?


#18

I wasn’t sure if that was an okay place or not… I’ll give that a go tomorrow morning I think. Trying to get as much time in the air as poss and build up confidence.
Cheers for the tip!!
Jase
