Just about to push the button and order a Mavic 2 … but I cannot work out where I could actually practise my flying skills in the Oxfordshire area. Flying legally and safely is important to me.
By the time I take into account the 50m rule, the CAA airspace restrictions, the Oxford Council (and University) bans on flying in all parks, the National Trust bans, 100 other sources saying where NOT to fly … and a disinclination to get into a fight with a farmer … what is actually left? What spaces can I legally launch from?
I would appreciate some thoughts from others who fly in this area. Right now I can’t think of anywhere I can go and practise — and a drone doesn’t seem like a good investment if it will only lead to a choice between frustration and illegality
