I ordered it on amazon.  It's  $29.99. It's nice and heavy and weather proof

Looks like it folds. Does it also roll up?


How small can it be made, for transport?

Thank you much for that, I've been looking wondering how they were if they were decent it's worth it but if it was nothing more than a plastic bag with an emblem not worth it

it's like a giant mouse pad....made of the same stuff, maybe thicker...it weighs over a pound I think. it can easily be rolled up, doesn't fold really well. I tried it out this morning and it worked okay. I did notice that as I was getting close to it but not directly over it , the prop wash was getting under it and causing it too shimmy away slightly like a sting ray or a halibut fish under water....I did manage to land on it.LOL I suspect with my P4P it'd be better with it's accurate landing sensors or whatever it has....

Hey, that's great. Thanks for responding back.

You could always stake it down to the ground, with some long nails, if you're flying from the ground.

Put a plastic grommet in each corner so you don't tear it up.
Wooden spikes like chopsticks whittled down to size, might be better, so as not to upset the delicate onboard compass.  ;-)

We southpaws frequently think outside the box... ;-)


Glad it works for you. I'd hate to hear you got tangled up, if that ever flew into the props.

Maybe a board game could be used as well. When the flight is over you could play a game of Monopoly. At least it folds up for transport.

I had often feared the toilet bowl affect, so I cut out a piece of solid maple hardwood board, in the shape of a toilet seat.  Haha

I refuse to have one of those "Oh scrap!" moments... ;-)
