All this needs is a bubble level in the center and something to adjust the legs (shims would be inexpensive) to make it level.View attachment 1176 I have pottered around with a few experimental ideas.
Still working on trying to find the best solution.
Meanwhile I am using my latest contraption to good effect.
The holes help reduce blade wash and being raised keeps dust out of the motors.
Made it from 4' X 4' peg board on a wood frame and attached a piano hinge and fold down legs.
Can fold up and carry as well as fitting between the wheel arches in the back of my escape.
I would think this would retain the rolled up form after being stored for a few days and then would not lay flat.Maybe a tad too expensive .... but:
Yuneec Typhoon H Thick Rubber Landing Pad and Carrying Storage Handle
I often fly off of sand or gravel and deep grass or tall weeds.
Using an expanded metal table top mounted on a camera tripod with levels allows me to adapt to about any terrain.
The top allows air flow down and greatly reduces the bounce on the Q500 4K.
The Typhoon H does not seem to have the bounce, so far.
I added some longer pieces to the lower landing gear of the Q500 as I often had it tip forward upon landing destroying props.
Unlike my Blade 350QX, the OFF button on the Yuneecs has a delay and I have to activate it just before touchdown to prevent this.

Your Welcome very much!Ooooooooooooo now there's and idea
See, this forum is a treasure trove ... a right proper think tank
Or if the refective surface effects the signal at all , like a windsurfer antenna? Just be very careful if it is light at all! the vortex on take off/land can lift pretty heavy stuff, right up into the props and cause havoc on you motors/props !um a metal landing pad is a bad idea. metals can cause magnetic interference with the compass.
That would be great. Do you worry about the enclosed metal ring interfering in any way?
