    Very informative – thanks Ian. By the way, how are you getting on with your DJI FPV? Any plans to post more videos??

  2. Gerard Morgan on October 31, 2021 at 9:21 am

    Been a Grey Arrows member for over a year. The dronscene pages are excellent . I always use in conjunction with Altitude Angel. A definite must have for all responsible drone operators. Nice one Ian.

  3. Karen Clarke on October 31, 2021 at 9:21 am

    Thanks Ian very helpful as ever. I have a link to this Website but a quick rundown on the actual way around it is great.👍👍

  4. Barney Kennett on October 31, 2021 at 9:22 am

    Nice…👍.

  5. The Snapshot Drones on October 31, 2021 at 9:22 am

    Great content Ian!

  6. Bike-Drone-explore on October 31, 2021 at 9:23 am

    Brilliant as usual. The go to sire for sensible straightforward info 👌🏼

  7. Steve Valentine Photography on October 31, 2021 at 9:25 am

    Great video for a great website 👍🏽 nice one Ian.

  8. Nutleigh Grove on October 31, 2021 at 9:26 am

    Nice one Ian, thanks 👍🏻 As I mentioned once before, I fly 450 size helis. Would this be just as useful for heli pilots as it is for drone pilots? 🚁🌈

  9. Flypic on October 31, 2021 at 9:27 am

    Thanks Ian. Jim

  10. Barney Kennett on October 31, 2021 at 9:28 am

    Nice…👍.

  11. David Harle on October 31, 2021 at 9:28 am

    Thanks Ian, I’ve been a member for most of this year and I find it to be a great club for drone flyers and the maps are really good.

  12. Phantom and the Drone on October 31, 2021 at 9:31 am

    Great info Ian!👍 looks very useful

  13. P&P on October 31, 2021 at 9:32 am

    What’s the catch with drone scene?

  14. David Taylor on October 31, 2021 at 9:32 am

    Again very informative Ian 👍

  15. P&P on October 31, 2021 at 9:35 am

    What is class D Airspace?

  16. Doug Cooper on October 31, 2021 at 9:36 am

    Congratulations Ian! Great App For All The Drone Pilots In UK.

  17. GoFlyFPV on October 31, 2021 at 9:38 am

    Confused, can’t find the app on Google play

  18. Jörg Fenin on October 31, 2021 at 9:41 am

    Very useful – if I lived in the UK. I wish we had something similar in Germany. Over here, I think every drone owner keeps his best flying spots secret so that no other pilot would show up there. Pretty disappointing.

  19. S JC on October 31, 2021 at 9:44 am

    Ian I’m a painter and decorator
    Can I take pics of places for agents and give them to them at no cost

  20. Sean Taylor on October 31, 2021 at 9:46 am

    I’m always keeping an eye on Drone Scene.. I live in Dudley and there is not much posted around here, only 1 within 10 miles of me and only a few more within 20 miles of me, hopefully over time more and more locations will be updated. Good video and I always look out for your videos Ian, keep up the good work. cheers.

  21. Gavin Hyland on October 31, 2021 at 9:47 am

    Thanks Ian, am subscribed to you, as well as GADC Member, always learning from you and GADC

  22. Neil Carter on October 31, 2021 at 9:48 am

    Superb thanks Ian, always find your videos helpful, thanks for the effort you put into them

  23. neale gordon on October 31, 2021 at 9:49 am

    Thanks Ian. Another useful video as opposed to the plethora off “look what I’ve got videos!” Not yours of course! Lots of laughter

  24. SiF1 on October 31, 2021 at 9:50 am

    Anyone know if we are allowed to fly a DJI mini 2 over them tall electric pylons? They are around 30m – 50m high. i have a few around me, so would be great if we can. Otherwise, I’m trapped in a small area.

  25. Steven Bannister on October 31, 2021 at 9:55 am

    Top information cheers Ian very useful, didn’t really go into depth on the site before but you’ve opened my eyes to how good it is, cheers Steve from just outside London, (Kent) now living in the Highlands.

  26. Don Joyce on October 31, 2021 at 9:56 am

    Ver similar to the Drone Pilot Canada app, which also incorporates all the Canadian requirements such as checklists, site surveys and logs. I like Drone Scene’s sharing feature! Here’s a walk through of Drone Pilot Canada: https://youtu.be/EjAP9yBvu0c

  27. Baron Bagaten on October 31, 2021 at 9:56 am

    Wow, many thanks Ian. Wasn’t aware of this app ‘n’ website.

  28. Rogar0 on October 31, 2021 at 9:57 am

    Wow, thank you Ian, all great stuff Egészségedre!

  29. Nicholas Crocker on October 31, 2021 at 9:57 am

    I am a member of Grey Arrows and do use this ‘app’ but many thanks for showing me how to fully access all the functions. Question. How can find what all the various colours on the map represent, in other words how do I access the gazetteer?

  30. atcautoelec on October 31, 2021 at 10:04 am

    Thanks for another super vid Ian.

  31. Tim O'Ryan on October 31, 2021 at 10:06 am

    Wow- that’s some website. Thanks Ian.

  32. Luke Padfield on October 31, 2021 at 10:06 am

    Bloody marvellous! Thanks Ian!

  33. chris perry on October 31, 2021 at 10:09 am

    I can’t seem to find that app you said about

  34. thevideoark on October 31, 2021 at 10:11 am

    Hi Ian. I came across your video in a link and could not give you the thumbs up on it so got you again on YouTube. Excelant video. I had no idea this existed. Many thanks to you for your video, and the work you have all put into Drone Scene. So excited to try it out. Its like a one stop place for all my needs. Very impressive. Fly safe blue side up.

  35. Newtoo Drones on October 31, 2021 at 10:14 am

  39. alan smith on October 31, 2021 at 10:15 am

  40. Ian in London on October 31, 2021 at 10:16 am

    Defo one of the more useful websites….

  41. Steve Knight on October 31, 2021 at 10:17 am

    I’ve just taken a look at Dronescene, looks decent! Just found an abandoned Fort at the Isle of Grain I never knew existed! Will check that out once the weather improves. Thanks for sharing, another great video! 👍

  42. Cockers on October 31, 2021 at 10:18 am

    Ian, you’ve done it again, a great subject that I’ve been needing to see and learn.. Thanks bud. 👍
