Because it is a National Park and drones are forbidden.
If you can take off outside the Park, then you can fly and land without being stopped.

Its not forbidden in all national parts.
The national trust is the drone gestapo and try to claim you cant fly from OR over but they cant stop flying over. And their land usually has public roads and common land going through it.

Devon has some fairly stunning coastal scenery to fly around if you can get the weather.

Hi all

I'm currently waiting delivery of my first drone, a Mavic Air. Doing a bit of research while I wait and came across this forum. A bit disconcerting to find out that Dartmoor is a no go, and National Trust land!

The Air is designed to be discreet. Has anyone had any issues from anyone when flying theirs? I really didn't think I was going to be so limited for flying locations!

I'm in Tiverton by the way

Nice.
I was in Devon and Cornwall a few weeks ago and while I can’t tell you where to fly you are spoilt for beautiful scenery. Have fun with your new Mavic

Hi Primalcarl, I'm tiverton based, have you found suitable places to fly?
I'm interested as having concerns about flying in most areas!

Hi guys,
Also based in South Devon and awaiting the arrival of my Mavic Air.
I too had thought of the Day mark as a possible place for a maiden voyage. There are some nice spots around there which are pretty quiet.

Anyone had any problems flying in 2018?

I live on the Bere Peninsula (between the rivers Tamar and Tavy) in between Tavistock and Plymouth. There are plenty scenic places to fly around here especially if you don't mind flying over water or mud if the tides out.
