Hi
I live close to Heathrow airport, for over 50 years I've been into rc flying, building of cars, boats,planes,helicopters and drones for around 4 years.
I've jumped over from mavic forum. I got so bored due to our lousy weather I picked one up from Argos

Hi, I'm also close to Heathrow, out to the west near Staines. Have you found any decent places to fly in the area? So little opportunities round my way.

Many thanks, some great suggestions. Looks like Saxon Lake and Little Britain Lake are closest to me. Any problems parking at these places? How close can you get by car? Thanks again. Hope to catch you flying at one of these locations sometime.

Little Britain parking is limited but free for as long as you like, if it's crowded with walkers and fishermen, walk or drive as far as you can and you will see an entrance on you left for a ramblers walk.
Saxon lake park in colnbrook village and walk straight through the church yard out to a public footpath. You will come up to the M4 look left and there is a stile, this takes you round the lake and on to some nice parkland.
Or there is unrestricted parking in and around Little Benty west drayton, it's a dead end with a footbridge over the M4 to the stile by the lake.
