    Hi all, I live in Cumberland MD and thankfully everyone here is cool about drones so can fly pretty much anywhere away from the local airport, military base and such and with so much farm land I have been able to fly in peace. However, I want to try some new scenery, anyone know of a place where to fly around the areas mentioned above? Don't mind going for a nice Sunday drive for a good place to have some flying time.

    Thanks!

    You might look/search/post in the Regional Meet-Up/NorthEast forum.

    Hope this helps.

    Out your way there are a ton of places to fly that are very nice. Central MD is now a giant NFZ so the pretty places in it along the rivers and shore are gone.

    The Eastern Shore of MD has open spaces to fly and of course, you are close to PA and WV for some nice places too.

    I actually have a Southern PA fly list I am thinking up with a cool video idea...

    Southern PA!...Hmm, I will look at this. I will also check the meetups for any decent places.

    I'm going out Saturday to this place near Thurmont, MD which a friend of mine has been flying his inspire with no issues.

    Be careful West of Thurmont! Men in suits and black sedans may make you disappear if you fly in the wrong places.

    I am shooting East of Thurmont and SouthPA tmw.

    We go to Harper's Ferry every October for Halloween camping at the KOA. Beautiful country. Will definitely investigate flying in the area.
