When I first got my Phantom 3 last month, I was using a 24" x 22" MDF board to land on since I didn't want to land in the wet grass. I wanted to make it into an actual landing pad, so I painted it to be highly visible during the day. It also has a infrared LED illuminator in the center to make it (hopefully) highly visible at night. I will post pictures when I get a chance to test this out. I still need to figure out some kind of lens to cover the hole, as well as some sort of 12v power to it. Here's the infrared illuminator I used: Infrared IR 36 Led Illuminator Board for CCTV CCD Security Camera WD I may also add short adjustable legs to help with leveling, but this usually isn't an issue.
