Think Tank Photo’s Airport Helipak™ Backpack to Offer Superior Organization, Enhanced Travel Portability, and Greater Value for DJI Phantom 2 Users
SANTA ROSA, CALIFORNIA – In February, Think Tank Photo will release the most 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.
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.”
