This happened at our local flying field a couple months ago. The carpet is nailed down now. Extremely dry and dustly here if landing on grass.

We had that same problem at our club, so we nailed the carpets down.

Can't imagine anyone putting a carpet down without nailing it down!

Never use carpet.....for obvious reasons.....I have a 3x3 piece of plywood to land and lanch form on dirt......you could alwasy plant some grass in a little patch for landing and takeoffs.

Grass takes water (rain), and that what we have had none of for the last nine months.

I know that's a problem that's hard to understand in Washington State.

i fly off carpet at a little vacant lot down the road from my office. not gonna nail it down, because it's not my land. but, i know what he did in that vid....

he went full negative right when he touched down and sucked the carpet right up into his mains. ask me how i know :/

last time i did that. FWIW, still flying off the carpet for over a year with no further incident.

if it ain't broke, break it.
