Drone users can now carry their 3DR Solo, laptop, controller, GoPros, charger, spare rotors, extra batteries, jacket and tools in a robust and yet lightweight new backpack, the Airport Helipak for 3DR Solo from Think Tank Photo.
Unlike rigid hard cases that lack extra carrying capacity and comfort, Think Tank said this new backpack is designed for 3DR drone enthusiasts who want to be able to carry all of their gear with them all the time.
“The number one complaint of drone users about their bags is that, after just a few hours, their bodies are rebelling from the pain,” said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank’s CEO and lead designer.
“For a decade we’ve released photography and outdoor backpacks designed to hold expensive and extremely heavy photographic equipment. The very same principles we used for them have been integrated into the Airport Helipak for 3DR Solo backpack. Now they can venture deep afield with all of their gear and no concerns about comfort.”
The case, weighing 4.6 pounds, has custom dividers designed for the 3DR Solo and allows users to reconfigure the bag depending on the gear being carried. The bag is both international and domestic carry-on size compatible.
It has a dedicated 15-inch laptop pocket, YKK RC Fuse zippers, 1680D ballistic nylon bottom panel, metal hardware and nylon webbing. Protective rotor thread caps are included. Internal see-through mesh pockets are available for small accessories including rotor blades, screwdriver and cables.
