Just need to be careful as some of the smaller councils have restriction such as Gedling restrict flying from the Country Park.

I’ve flown from Bulwell Forest Recreation ground across the golf course with no issues.

Thanks for that information looks impressive I will make this my first area to fly and shoot some footage, just got to wait for the flyer ID transfers to arrive to place on the drone just want to be all correct flying this , thanks for your help and safe flying,

You mean Operator ID transfers, of course. :wink:

Raspberry there’s no rush as the misty weather makes flying around here a bit iffy,
