Think Tank Photo has officially unveiled the Airport Helipak, a camera backpack specifically designed to safely store and transport your DJI Phantom drone.

Powerful but fragile beasts, drones can be troublesome to carry around with their fragile rotors and handful of necessary components. To solve this issue, Think Tank’s Airport Helipad snugly secures your DJI Phantom and its accessories inside an easy-to-carry backpack.

The bag has enough room for the Phantom, its controller, extra batteries, a dedicated external display, extra rotors and even a dedicated laptop compartment. The modular velcro system inside makes it slightly easier to adapt the bag to your particular usage.

If you're wanting this bag, you’ll need to be patient. The Airport Helipak isn’t set to be released until February of 2015, when it will go on sale for $240.

It’s not the first backpack dedicated to carrying around your drone, but from the team at Think Tank, it’s unlikely to disappoint.
