Think Tank Photo’s new FPV Airport Helipak Backpack is built to transport a FPV racer’s complete multirotor racing kit to their next race.

This comfortable “pit stop in a bag” holds all of their drones, tools, gear and accessories — and is designed to meet most U.S. domestic and international carry-on requirements.

“The new FPV Airport Helipak features YKK RC Fuse zippers, 1680D Ballistic nylon bottom panel, metal hardware, and nylon webbing that are the most durable, long lasting materials available," said Mike Sturm, Think Tank Photo's FPV designer.

Think Tank Photo’s new FPV Airport Helipak Backpack is built to transport a FPV racer’s complete multirotor racing kit to their next race. This comfortable “pit stop in a bag” holds all of their drones, tools, gear and accessories — and is designed to meet most U.S. domestic and international carry-on requirements. Customizable dividers and internal attachment points enable numerous layout configurations. The FPV Airport Helipak is protective, yet lightweight and very portable — making it an ideal bag for the traveling quad racer.

“The bottom line is that, to date, most carrying solutions for FPV racing have been of inferior quality,” said Think Tank co-founder, designer, and FPV racer Mike Sturm. “The new FPV Airport Helipak features YKK RC Fuse zippers, 1680D Ballistic nylon bottom panel, metal hardware, and nylon webbing that are the most durable, long lasting materials available. FPV racers should be concerned only with winning, not with what to do if their bag rips.”
