    Have been reading through the various do's and dont's about flying and was wondering where you all fly or how do you decide where to fly next including reasons for flying.

    I go to an old disused factory, and its grounds.
    Theres normally some youngsters on skateboards around, or a dad and his boy on a little pit bike on the grassy bit,. Its a good place to go, and well out of the way.
    I did try to fly on the field near the park but, too many people and their dogs!!!

    Thanks, gonna have to do a reccy in my local area to find interesting and safe places to fly before a make a decision. As great as these things seem I don't want to get one and then not be able to use it.

    I do a lot of flying off my deck, unfortunately the area is very limited. I do a lot of flying over the ocean as well. No margin for error not to mention the salt air makes it a bad place with the exception of knowing I will not land on someone's head.

    We fly near Druridge Bay in Northumberland .Lots of open land after all the opencast sites we've had to put up with over the years. Was out on Tuesday past and took the Blade up to one of the turbines . Lovely scenery .

    Yes , theres been 13 installed this year , we've been watching them getting assembled but sadly never filmed the process . I personally think there a blot of the landscape and would rather not see them put up near Druridge Bay but I had no choice !

    You might be right ,but that area has been opencast mining for more than 50 or 60 years , they even demolished 2 villages to make way for coal extraction . Then they put the land back to the way it was ,then put up turbines :-(
