Hello from York! Looking for flying spots!
« on: July 29, 2021, 06:15:23 PM »

Hi guys, new to the forum and pretty new to FPV in general. I'm near York and am looking for flying spots. I'm struggling to find literally anywhere to fly. Both yesterday and today I went for a 2 hour drive with all my packs charged and couldn't find a single place to fly. Very discouraging.

Does anyone know any good spots near York? ~30 minute drive.

I tried some of the places on the fpv spots map and all our outdated. Honestly not even looking for anything special just anywhere at all I can fly  :o

Hi DreJ

Welcome to the forum.

I live in Hull and find it very difficult to find any spots to fly my quads anywhere.
I used to be able to fly them on Beverley Westwood until they slapped a ban on flying them there.

I am a member of BADMAC flying club where I can fly around the site with my quads as well as fixed wing.
It is not the best place to fly quads with all the club safety rules (which I agree with) but at least I get a chance to fly them.

I can only suggest to keep looking or see if there are any clubs near by.

I think there is a York club and one at Holme on Spalding moor.
Keep us posted on your progress.

I remember that feeling well when I first started.

In the end I decided that if I was flying by myself, I didn't need a "perfect" flying spot to hang around in - even if I got a 5 minute flight in at the side of the road around something interesting it still counted - so personally I'd just try to find somewhere off the beaten track, chuck the aircraft up and enjoy yourself for a few mins.

Chances are noone will be bothered in such a small time window.

I live near Goole by the way, not a million miles away. There seems to be a little cluster of us around these parts :)
