Yes, basically I like the idea of an instant hook up and release station that can tell you where you have been or will be hovering. Hook to the pylon throwing the float- as previously described, but cinch the hook end around the pylon. Usually there is at least a light wind, so the float will be downwind from the pylon. Also, wind the rope length if you want to work from a position closer or further away from the pylon. Then, add a second lightweight snap hook on the float itself to quickly hook up, if you don't want to zip up the float itself into a pocket. I haven't tested it yet, but seems like an idea to try.
