    This short legged Mavic need some accessory to protect lens and body from projections.
    This drone pad is purfect for that, plus a custom design to test the Precise Landing and zero place in your transport bag.
    It is not the plan of FlatHat Labs, they created a 32" one for Phantom or Mavic size drones, but less easy to transport in a tiny bag.

    I thought you had to get advertisements approved before posting on the community?

    Oh, this is not an advertisement, just a test of accessory extracted from my blog, but if this is not correct, you can of course delete post. Just wanted to share with members.

    Ah, ok fair enough - it's crap anyway as it blows around all over the place.
    Pretty useless - thanks for demonstrating how bad is.

    If your sentence starts with "I wonder if" and contains the words "3D" and "Print" I think the answer is always "yes."

    I wonder if someone will 3D print a burger that looks like a shoe...

    Yes.

    The back motors don't have legs. They're designed to not have to touch the ground.

    Agree, pretty useless. Extends set up time considerably, needing to hammer in pegs each time and makes it more bulky to carry around with the pegs in the bag.

    Be pretty good as a Frisbee though!

    I have been successful in finding places to fly from without having to resort to a takeoff/landing pad. The Mavic is small and a rock or just flattening down grass with your feet is sufficient. I don't like to take off from dirt as it will soil the VPS and possibly the lens of the camera.

    For my pad I use a 24 inch square piece of 1/2 inch plywood. Keep it in car trunk all the time. Only use it if an area has sand or dirt which is not very often. I sawed out a small place for a handle on one side. Works great if I ever need it.

    If I need one I have a twist-N-fold car sunshade with a large 'H' in yellow duct tape on it. 3 small push-in tent stakes to hold it down although it is 36" across when unfolded, and very small when twisted up, it worked well with my P3 when needed.

    Ed - Cant one just hand launch by tossing the Mavic Pro while throttling up? That is of course after placing it on the ground to determine home point and so forth. I want to do Lily style launches just by chucking the Mavic Pro with hard left left stick up (Mode 1 of course) .

    Why not just let it take off from your hand? If you toss it into the air, there's going to be a point of instability where it's readjusting itself. That could be dangerous if it flies back toward your face.

    What I have been using for years when I launch a drone in the mountains is a piece of cardboard (or when I really need to save weight and space in my pack, just some cloth that I hold down with rocks on the corners).

    I had all those ideas too, and used some with my P3A, but this thing is hmmm smart. Extremely ez to put into a bag.
    What i want is to test the famous Precise Landing promised by DJI, it has 16" to prove it to me.

    I think I will actually do it that way as I want to keep my nose and current haircut. :)

    Haha I'm looking forward to these "crashed my Mavic" videos coming in the next few weeks. How would that seem like a good idea.
