    • reduces or eliminates bouncy ground effects
    • No need for electronic communication. understands human tones and gestures
    • raises quadcopter above pavement to eliminate compass errors from subsurface metal rebar
    • scoring system makes it a great game for meets, clubs, groups
    • Beer delivery system
    • makes an excellent present for any quad pilot
    • Comes in a host of colors.
    • Optimized for the Phantom 3
    • Makes supper.
    • Comes in Male and Female versions. Female version more pliant.
    • Support for carry system not included
    • Comes in stand up version too.
    This model was embarrassed, so names and places have been changed to protect the identity of the pilot...

    And for the Darwinians please don't try this at home...

    Could be difficult to explain at the hospital if you land it incorrectly! :oops:

    Nice! I have two smaller landing pads also, but they are far less stable and only respond to human tones and gestures about 50% of the time.

    I hear a lot of guys are getting rid of the old model landing pads thinking the newer models are better. Then they find it near impossible to actually acquire the new model anywhere. Now there stuck with no where to land....

    Hmmm...can be expensive to acquire, requiring many decorative accessories. Can be even more expensive to get rid of if pilot finds it is not a suitable landing pad.

    I have one like that but flip it over so it can hold my drink and sandwich too.
