FlatHat Labs

Created by ExpoImaging, 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.  The FlatHat Collapsible Drone Pad is patent-pending.  Learn more at FlatHatLabs.com.


The new patent-pending FlatHat 32” (80 cm) Collapsible Drone Pad is constructed out of durable, heavy-duty fabric mounted to a flexible spring steel frame.  Weighing just 1lb., 2oz (500g), the 32” drone pad collapses to 1/3 of its expanded size, storing quickly in an included carry bag that fits easily into a backpack or laptop sleeve.  

The 32” size is perfect for mid-size consumer drones like the DJI Phantom series, the DJI Inspire, the 3DR Solo, the Parrot Bebop and other similarly sized drones.    Included with the 32” FlatHat Collapsible Drone Pad are 3 aluminum ground stakes which can be used to help secure the drone pad in windy conditions.

The FlatHat 16” (40cm) Collapsible Drone Pad was designed for mini and nano sized drones.  Made from durable fabric and weighing just 3.5 oz. (100g), the 16” Drone Pad collapses and stores in a 6” diameter carry bag. 

The drone pad’s bold landing pattern provides an easy-to-see target, and the pad can act as a designated ‘return-home’ location for drones with that capability.
