Manfrotto launches D1 backpack for photographers using drones
Accessories manufacturer Manfrotto has introduced a new series of backpacks designed for photographers who fly drones. The Aviator D1 Drone Backpack is big enough to hold a medium sized quadcopter such as the DJI Phantom 3 along with all the accessories that go with it, as well as a DSLR, a laptop and a tripod.
The bag offers a quick-carry feature that allows the drone to be transported without it being taken apart so it can be moved between locations quickly. The body fits inside the bag while the blades pop out of the front flap, which is secured to the main section of the bag with clips. With the propellers removed the whole quadcopter will fit inside the bag with nothing sticking out.
Manfrotto says that the bag is extra-lightweight, water resistant and extremely spacious. The camera section is designed to hold a DSLR and two lenses, while the laptop compartment can accommodate a model with a 17" screen.
The Aviator D1 Drone Backpack will retail at £159. For more information visit the Manfrotto website.
Manfrotto, world leader in the photography, imaging equipment and accessories industry, announces the new D1 DRONE BACKPACK, the first all-in-one carry system in a brand-new range of products designed to carry a quadcopters like DJI Phantom 3 and its remote controls as well as a DSLR camera, laptop and tripod.
