The 5' diameter Drone Launch Pad from Hoodman provides a takeoff and landing surface for your DJI Inspire, Yuneec Typhoon, or similar-sized RC heli. The pad prevents dust and debris being kicked up by the downdraft, and features an 8 lb weighted perimeter to avoid being blown away. A bright orange coloration makes the Launch Pad easy to locate and serves to alert others in the vicinity that a drone is in use.

Hoodman HDLP Reviews
Don't Buy a cheap plastic BAG heli/drone landing pad !!
Do not waste your money on what may appear as a more cost effective landing pad. The 5' Hoodman is an absolute no brainer! I'm up in an area of AZ where we see commonly 20MPH surface winds with gusts to 40-50MPH. Toss this landing pad out, no stakes, and it will stay put for the take off AND landings. The prop wash from the drone isn't causing the edge to lift! This is an important issue with any of the cheap plastic imitations. I recently procured an AUTEL Evo Lite+ as a first drone (55+ years of R/C experience in fixed wing and heli) and the landing pad was definitely a key part of making it a 'good' experience. I'm sold. Whatever you decide to buy and enjoy as a HELI or DRONE, this needs to be included in your 'investment' for too many reasons to explain here.. And this 5' size is easy to store in the high quality shoulder bag and folding it into 4ths to store is just so simple. The size should be more than adequate for much larger drones as well. You will be glad you did!
MY GO TO
B&H is definitely my go to for drone accessories.
Worth every penny
This is probably the last launch pad that I'll have to purchase in a very long time. No more partially submerged tent stakes to hold it down. Huge plus on the weighted edges. Highly recommended.
Fantastic product by HOODMAN
I use this for surveys and inspections as well as day to day flight operations. It sets up and takes down in seconds and gives your UAV a safe, dry, debris free landing and take off location.
A bit large for the Inspire 2, I think maybe a 4ft would be better. It opens easily & can be thrown down quickly. It doesn't seem too heavy & is carried with a shoulder strap. I watched several videos on how to fold it away, but it's really much easier to fold than I expected. I have never got the folding wrong - it looks wrong, as when folded it's still pretty big, but I'm always surprised that I've folded it correctly. Not really flat enough to allow the full Inspire pre-flight setup, which I still carry out on a table, but it is so big that landing is very easy. I wudl probably buy a 4ft version if one ever became available.
super is an understatement
perfect , size and all for the inspire 2 drone. Thank you
Easy to deploy, protects the drone from rocks and branches and moisture. Easy to spot in the air for recovery. The launch pad is very well made and a solid tool for the professional.
This is so expensive but once I pulled the trigger on it I haven't look back and I use it every single time I fly now. It's built super tough and is plenty heavy to hold the ground without any movement under my Inspire 2 during take-offs or landings. I work on construction sites and dust and dirt is an absolute constant. I used to search at length for good spots to take off and land, now I just toss this down on a flat spot and I'm ready to go. Absolutely love it. The compass orientation is a fun tool to guess where north is, great learning tool. Takes a few tries to get used to folding it back up but after a while it's no big deal. This Launch Pad and the Hoodman iPad aviator hoods are absolutely essential tools to my drone work.
