I live about 5 mins from Danson Park, I have never flown there either.
Its a nice place but its likely busy with people at the weekend and those with 5 inch drones will likely struggle to get any flights in if you wish to stay away from those that are playing games, dog walking or having picnic’s.
I’ll do a recon one day to see if this is actually how things are, it’s been a few years since I tried to visit so things might be a little different. One side of the lake is usually far busier so the other might be fine.
Parking around there can be tough later in the day. There is a car park inside the park for the pub / restaurant thats there, otherwise its on the road outside.
I vote for Danson Park, it’s very handy because it has a free weekend parking along the main road and yes, since I am local I flew it twice here are my 2 video once in the summer and once in the winter when the lake was frozen
Knockholt in the lead at the moment. I’ll check the long range weather forecast on Sunday.
Deangate Ridge maybe not ideal for 5inch FPV which what might be lacking in votes. (Jason looked yet?)
I looked at Shoreham War Memorial, Tea rooms on way but quite a walk and the back is at least 15 degrees (which is steeper than you may think),
Work quite well, there is a channel map thread on the site. Only had one minor issue when lots of lots of drones in air, that one could not really takeoff. I tend to not fly analogue when lots of (hacked/FCC DJI drone are in the air.
It was Danson Park that was near me, I have unfortunately been unable to visit since saying that I would… oops. As mentioned its not a great place for FPV drones, I think there would be too many people for it to be comfortably safe.
