@Maximis Welcome Darren. :+1:

@Maximis Just filter with @clinkadink in DS and Chris has it riddled around there! :grin:

Welcome @Maximis

Welcome and enjoy your new hobby :+1:

Thanks all, just need to find somewhere close to fly!

@Maximis Looks like there’s quite a few to start with Darren👍

Thanks what are the blue circles?

Temporary warning,
If you go on to drone scene & find your intended place to fly, if you see the blue circle, click on it & it will tell you, as the restriction may be active & or warning you of the time date of the restriction weather it be live or in the coming days etc.

Edit : from drone scene maybe easier to understand,

Blue zones are advanced notice of areas that will shortly become either red or yellow, while yellow regions with a blue border are notice of a current drone flight.

Hi Darren, welcome from the Black Country

@Kirky Richard
What he :point_up_2: said. @ianinlondon did a video on Drone Scene as well. Great tool for giving you all you need to fly safely (to the point you get your fingers on the RC that is :grin:).

Hi maybe try Browns Folly it’s not far from you

Hi @Charliecharlie, it looks as though you’re quite new here :wave:t2:

Why not nip over to the Introductions page, and say hello properly and tell us a bit about yourself. :+1:t2:

Hi Maximus - I live in Westbury - a great place to start is at the White Horse (if it’s not too windy!)

Is the white horse ok to fly, I looked on line and it says not as English heritage?
