Sixty-square meters? That's about 600 square feet. Yes, you can launch and land in that space. I've got a P2 version 1 and launched and landed in a waterfront space about that size today. When I got home, I still had two batteries I needed to discharge, and I launched and hovered in an area no more than 150 square feet. The Phantom "roamed" a bit during the battery discharges, but I was very close to the ground (not more than six feet) and there may have been some thermals coming off the asphalt. It was 93 and sunny. The issue you need to keep in mind is maintaining line-of-sight with the bird. I live by the rule that if I can't see it, I can't fly it. So if you're surrounded by trees or other visual obstacles, you want to be above them so you can keep your eye on the Phantom.
