Think Tank Photo's New Lightweight Airport Helipak for 3DR Solo Offers

Maximum Capacity, Comfort and Portability


Drone users can now carry their 3DR Solo, 15'' laptop, controller, GoPros, charger, spare rotors, extra batteries, jacket, tools, and more 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, 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.''
