Use of a drone pad will help to protect your drone's camera and sensors against rotor wash dust and debris.
Rotor wash is air turbulence caused beneath a helicopter or drone by its rotor blades.
Under most conditions you will not need to use the ground stakes to secure the drone pad. They are included for your convenience to use in windy conditions.
Yes. Like any folded fabric the drone pad can get wrinkled when collapsed and stored in the carry bag. Be sure to use the iron's lower temperature "synthetic" fabric setting before applying to the drone pad's polyester fabric.
Yes, the lighting kit will attach to the 16" and 32" FlatHat drone pad. The el wire is sized to fit the longer perimeter of the larger 32" drone pad. To attach the el wire to the smaller 16" drone pad, simply trim the wire with a sharp pair of scissors to the appropriate length.
The drone pad is a hand-made product and there can be some variation in the size of the fabric loops used to attach the lighting kit's el wire. If one of the loops on your drone pad is too small to thread the el wire through, then we suggest removing the small plastic cap from the tip of the el wire. This will reduce the diameter of the wire tip and should allow you to thread the el wire through the loop. Removing the end cap will not damage the el wire.
Yes, you can shorten the electroluminescent wire by cutting it with a sharp pair of scissors. This will not alter the functionality of the lighting kit.
Yes, in fact we recommend it.
FlatHat Labs develops cool gear for drone pilots. "Flat hatting" was a term coined by World War II pilots to refer to unauthorized low-level flying and stunting. FlatHat products aim to help drone pilots have more fun while flying.
