In two weeks time, I shall be in the Brecon Beacons, hoping to take my Spark and get some flights over this wonderful, picturesque countryside...any tips / do's / dont's welcome. I'll of course observe the drone code and not fly more than 400ft above ground level.
Thanks,

Chris

Hi Chris,

Acording to https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/features/flying-drones-at-our-places drone flying is not permitted there.

Too bad, I would have liked to see some footage of it!

Cheers,

Hey guys, I have a question.

I am looking to get footage of the Brecon Beacons and understand they have certain policies in place about drones.

However I own the new DJI Mavic mini and is is under the CAA regulations of 250 grams so therefore my drone is classed as a toy!

Would these policies still apply for me?

Not from any land owned by the National Trust, they state "All aerial activity above our sites is prohibited unless specific permission is granted, according to an existing byelaw." That said, they do not control the airspace, only their land from which you take off and land, so if you were to use a public footpath as close to their land and fly from there, I don't think they have any claim...Be careful as Military Aircraft fly in the Brecons, so use the NATS App to check the locations. I'd still abide by the drone code, so as not to cause hassles for other drone fliers...I never flew as the weather was too poor. Good luck.
