Go everywhere with the Airport Helipak, and be ready to fly your Phantom Quadcopter anywhere you need it! That’s the promise that comes with the new product from Think Tank Photo, a Airport Helipak – the name fits the concept – that will be great value for DJI Phantom 2 users.
Those wanting this backpack will have to wait until February, when it will be launched. ProVideo Coalition mentionned before the launch of the divider kit allowing to convert a Think Tank Photo Airport Acelerator bag into a customized quadcopter transportation backpack (Think Tank Photo Releases Quadcopter Divider Kit ) but now they’ve taken the idea one step further, for those that still do not have a transport bag for their drone.
Priced at $239.75, the Think Tank Photo Airport Helipak is a travel friendly, comfortable, and reasonably priced backpack for users of DJI Phantom 2, Phantom 2 Vision or other similar sized drones. The Airport Helipak will easily hold a drone plus a 15” laptop, controller, GoPros, WiFi range extender, charger, spare rotors, extra batteries, and a Delvcam Camera-Top 7″ HDMI LCD Monitor, while still complying with airline carry-on size requirements. This means you can always carry it with you, no matter where you’re travelling to.
Movable dividers allow users to customize the fit of their gear in this fully featured backpack. The contoured adjustable harness with lumbar support and articulated air-channel, the adjustable sternum strap, and the removable padded waistbelt allow for extreme comfort even while trekking by foot or mountain bike into remote areas.
“As with all Think Tank gear, the Airport Helipak will be backed by our commitment to using only the highest quality materials,” said Think Tank Photo’s president and lead designer Doug Murdoch. “These include 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.”
