Think Tank Photo Introduces the Airport Helipak V2.0 Backpack for the DJI Phantom 4

As quadcopter design continues to evolve, so does Think Tank Photo’s Airport Helipak V2.0 backpack for DJI Phantom. This newly updated backpack accommodates a DJI Phantom 4 and similarly sized drones. 

Think Tank said it’s refined design is carry-on compatible for both U.S. domestic or international airline travel. Its custom divider set allows maximum room for extra accessories and gear, including a small camera kit, and features a dedicated 15-inch laptop compartment.

“We updated the backpack to carry a DJI Phantom 4, a 15-inch laptop, controller, GoPros, chargers, spare rotors, extra batteries, jacket and tools,” said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank Photo’s CEO and lead designer.

“The contoured adjustable harness with lumbar support, articulated air-channel, removable padded waistbelt and height-adjustable sternum strap enable comfort for travel into remote areas.”

The backpack features YKK RC Fuse zippers, 1680D Ballistic nylon bottom panel, metal hardware and nylon webbing, and a side pocket attachment for a tripod or water bottle. Internal see-through mesh pockets hold small accessories such as rotor blades, screwdriver and cables.

Robust handles ensure rapid retrieval from overhead bins and car trunks, while a seam-sealed rain cover helps to protect gear and stows away inside the backpack when not in use.

The backpack weighs 4.6 pounds and is priced at $199.75.
