I was in the top field and nobody about
Went to bosworth yesterday but to many people about
Trying my luck in Devon for a few days now

I would have gone to Bosworth with you. Hartshill Hayse in nuneaton is another regular spot I like to practice at. At the top of the field over looking atherstone.


#23

Being really new and very nervous of putting 800 pounds in the air I need somewhere where there is a lot of space. I tried out by the canal in brinklow last night but… a bit scary by the water and trees.

Stu the best place is on the top field at Coombe then for people in Cov.

4 posts were split to a new topic: I have a Mavic Pro, do I have to register it?

Hi all, just joined as i got my first drone. I am from Coventry and looking for somewhere to practise. I used to fly RC aircraft so not new to the radio control thing.

I was thinking of Brinklow but as was said too many trees and water. Any ideas would be welcome.

Hi there, I ve been practising on the field next to the old Browns lane site, if you go up coundon wedge drive to the island there is a pull in on the left / right depending on approach, its a farmers field but a public walkway cuts through it. i usually stand there and practise. Never had a problem…yet. Its a bit muddy this time of year, but that keeps most people away i guess.

There is also Coundon playing fields, if your up the far end by the nursery, cant see there being a problem either

Hi all, I live just north of Coventry on the border with Warwickshire. I have the old mines and a former golf course as a front garden. So can take off on my property. I have permission from the main landowner round here to takeoff/land on his fields too. There are two canals, a very picturesque old bridge, pump house and chimney, it’s pretty tree free on the old golf course and no issues from dog walkers/ramblers to date.

So, if you all want to head up here, I’m happy to organise a meet up or welcome you to the area (if you haven’t already guessed where I may be) :blush:
