I've found some good flying areas but there would either be high weeds, swampy conditions, etc. I thought about just using cardboard, but that could get water logged. I finally found what might do the job, on eBay. It is really for large RC helicopters, but I thought it would work. It is made of heavyweight vinyl, with the typical H on it. I may attach it to or just lay it on a firm surface. So, it got me wondering what you all (yall!) use for a landing/departure pad.
