    Hoodman HDLP3 reviews

    Drone Launch Pad for DJI Mavic/Phantom (3' Diameter) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product I had reservations before purchasing this product, but after I got it, I realized how important it is to have one. One has to pay attention to how this pad is folded as it comes out of the pouch. It is very easy to fold it afterwards. It stays in place on the ground with the weighted ring around the pad. Perfect for the Phantom series or Mavic Pro series and similar aircraft. Might be a little too small for the larger drones.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy duty pad The Hoodman launch pad has a heavy steel cable on the outer edge that keeps the pad steady during landings. I've seen videos of competing products that blew away in the wind on a beach and a video of a Mavic Pro damaging a propellor by striking a stake used to hold down the pad. I would have liked a slightly larger pad for landing in windy conditions, but the 3 foot diameter seems to be an industry standard. The only downside is the higher cost. It is also more difficult to fold up for storage; it's different than folding up an auto window shade.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I'm torn... I'd love for Hoodman to explain to me the reason this is almost $60 when I can go to any big box store and get 2 not quite circular car sun visors for under $10 that serve the purpose and are as portable as this. I can always paint an H on one if i feel the need. I'm not trying to be difficult and maybe there is a legitimate reason...I'm just curious.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! Very well made landing pad. I already crashed into it landing and broke two propellers and that landing barely scuffed it. It's very heavy duty and the weighted edge keeps it firmly planted.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional, Practical, Well worth the price I fly camera drones for aerial photography and the camera can be damaged by flying sand and gravel or even by high grass when taking off and landing. Using a Landing pad practically eliminates this worry and unnecessary damage to my drone. I looked at many other brands and models, this was the only one I found that was weighted on the perimeter to keep it firmly in place, the others used stakes to secure them to the ground. I dont want to carry stakes with me or install, uninstall them, and stakes cant be used on asphalt or concrete. Stakes can come loose on windy days and pop up and catch on your drone landing gear causing a crash when coming in to land. This product is useful, practical, and prevents needless damage. On the downside they can be tricky to fold up after use because of the weighted ring but with a little practice it becomes quicker and easier.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heavy-duty landing zone It's kinda pricey, but it's also substantially heavier material than most competitive products.� The outer rim is weighted, which keeps it from blowing away in the wind.� Big enough to provide a good landing target for drone amateurs like me.� Best feature is that it provides a reasonably flat surface from which to launch and land your drone--essential if you fly it in grassy or weedy areas.� Any foliage over two or three inches tall can damage propellers, interfere with calibration, takeoff and landing, and can allow grit and dust to enter the drone's motors.� I deducted one star because it is close to impossible to figure out how to fold the thing and return it to its case, and no worthwhile instructions are included.� Fortunately, there is a video on Hoodman's website that demonstrates the process, which is quite easy once you've done it a couple of times.� The pad is good insurance for your drone.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very useful! Very useful, and it won't move when landing your drone. Nice bright visible color lets passersby know that you're sharing the space. However there is a bit of weight to it, which adds up if you're taking it on a hike along with other photo gear. That being said, the carrying case is nice and it's a nice product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This is great. It has a weight cable to keep it in place during takeoff and landing. It prevents dirt and particle getting kicked up as well. It folds up to a manageable size. The fabric is very sturdy. It’s also a great visual aid to people. Would recommend no small than the 3’ size.
