Think Tank Photo Introduces Helipak, a Backpack for DJI Inspire Drones

Think Tank Photo has released a new protective backpack for users of DJI Inspire or other similarly sized quadcopters.

Think Tank said the Helipak for DJI Inspire easily holds a DJI Inspire (parked with gimbal and rotors detached), Zenmuse gimbal with three lenses, six batteries, two controllers, two eight-inch tablets, extra propellers and a 17-inch laptop and charger.

Movable dividers allow users to customize the fit of their gear in the backpack. The contoured tuck-away harness with lumbar support, cut-away air-channel, the adjustable sternum strap and the removable padded waistbelt allow for extreme comfort while trekking into remote areas or simply pulling it from the car.

“The backpack’s ABS twin wall reinforcement provides a rigid shell that protects sensitive gear from impacts, bumps and scrapes,” said Doug Murdock, Think Tank Photo’s president and lead designer. “It also features YKK RC Fuse zippers, 1680D ballistic nylon bottom panel, metal hardware and nylon webbing that are the most durable, longest lasting materials on the market. The last thing drone users want to worry about is if their backpack will hold up in rigorous outdoor conditions.”

The pack has a large front pocket that fits auxiliary items for the day’s outing, including a light jacket, 17-inch laptop pocket or a large tablet. The zippers are lockable zippers and internal see-through mesh pockets are available for small accessories such as propellers, screwdrivers and cables.

It includes an organizer for smart phone, wallet, pens, keys and business cards, plus a water bottle pocket on the side. The sternum strap is height adjustable. Robust handles on three sides ensure rapid and easy retrieval from airline overhead bins and car trunks. A seam-sealed rain cover helps to protect gear and stows away inside the backpack when not in use.

For superior water-resistance, all exterior fabrics have a durable water-repellant coating, plus the underside of the fabric has a polyurethane coating. It is made from 600D polyester, 420D velocity nylon, 3D air mesh, ultra-stretch pockets, Y-buckles, antique finish metal hardware, nylon webbing, and three-ply bonded nylon thread.

Exterior Dimensions are 19.3 inches wide, 24 inches high and 9.4 inches deep. The weight is 8.5 pounds. The price is $199.75.
