The Manfrotto Aviator Drone Backpack holds a DJI Phantom or a similar sized quadcopter with all accessories along with a DSLR, tripod and a laptop. As well as the internal casing option, an innovative design allows the drone to be safely attached to the exterior of the bag with the rotors still attached so you can quickly change locations while keeping your drone setup and ready to fly as soon as you arrive.
All-in-One Carry System
The Aviator Backpack is an all-in-one, lightweight and water-resistant carry system designed to hold all your shooting essentials. The spacious backpack not only holds a drone for aerial shooting but can also hold a laptop for on-site editing and a DSLR sized camera, two lenses as well as a tripod. You can be confident that bag will protect a massive range of your gear while retaining flexible access and easy mobility.
Modular Main Compartment
The main compartment features interchangeable and removable inserts that allow you customise the interior around the gear. This allows you to accommodate various quadcopter models and securely store the drone. In addition, there is also a customised compartment for the transmitter making sure you can carry everything you need.
Three storage pouches in the main compartment create a protected niche to snuggly hold the drone frame as well as two separate padded pockets with Velcro style security straps. The zippered pouches provide space to store various accessories like extra batteries, cables, or memory cards and features a see-through mesh cover to make it easy to find what you’re looking for quickly.
For times when you want to quickly move to another location without detaching and re-attaching the propellers, the smart external drone parking design allows the drone to be securely held with all the flight components still connected. The drone’s main body is safely cushioned in the bag while a front zippered opening ensures the attached propellers stay outside the bag.
Exclusive Camera Compartment
A spacious camera compartment can hold a full DSLR size camera with a medium zoom lens and a prime lens as well as some essential accessories. The dedicated camera pocket is easily accessible without having to open the main drone compartment flap. This means you can carry all your equipment for shooting outdoors with a flying camera and indoors with your tripod-mounted camera at the same time.
A wide zippered pocket on the back of the bag can simultaneously hold a laptop up to 17-inches and a tablet in a separate slip-in pocket to combine with your flight controller, making it easy to check your work in real time on the ground and in the air.
Protection to Equipment
Fabricated with nylon, RipStop and synthetic fabric the semi-rigid outer shell and padded dividers provide protection to your valuable gear against minor jolts and bumps. As well as camera and drone protection the bag offers an additional tripod attachment so you can safely carry your tripod with you.
A special coating on the fabric keeps out moisture and the Aviator Drone Backpack comes with a fold-out rain cover to protect the pack and its contents against rain and snow. The Aviaotr Backpack also has full length side pouches to carry a water bottle or umbrella so you’ll be prepared for whatever weather you encounter.
Comfortable Shoulder Harness
Adjustable shoulder straps and a well-cushioned lumbar pad help minimise the pressure of a fully loaded bag on your shoulders. A padded waist belt distributes weight between the shoulders and the hip for added comfort. To ensure the shoulder straps do not slide off the shoulder while walking, a sternum strap with a quick release buckle helps to keep the shoulder straps in position.
Attaches to Trolley Bag
A pass-through strap on the rear allows for attachment of the backpack to the handle bar of a trolley bag. This is extremely useful at airports or train stations when carrying the bag on top of a rolling luggage case.
The Manfrotto D1 Aviator Drone Backpack is specifically designed to hold all the DJI Phantom models. However, with its customisable interiors, any other similar-size quadcopter can also be accommodated.
