If protecting your drone is a high priority, a landing pad is a great investment that will likely last you for years. Drones have fragile parts like cameras and propellers that can be damaged during landing, especially if you’re on a hard or uneven surface. Landing pads range in size from around 30 to 60 inches. Larger is often better, but if you have a small drone that is easy to navigate, a smaller landing pad may suffice. Most pads must be staked down, but some are stake-free due to their heavy weight. If you frequently fly at night, a light-up landing pad helps you (or your drone’s RTH feature) easily navigate to the pad. Landing pads have different setup methods and come in different materials that vary in their durability and visibility.
