Among the products we saw at the Photography Show was the Airport Helipak for DJI Phantom from ThinkTank

The Photography Show is always a hectic time – with so many new products to try and technologies to see it can be a little overwhelming, and it’s easy to miss a few cool things in the bustle.

That’s why we made sure to document some of the fun innovations we saw at the Show on video. First up is the ThinkTank Helipak, which is a carry-on backpack specifically designed to house a DJI Phantom Quadcopter.

It’s got dividers inside to allow you to customise the interior to suit your needs, and it’s fully compliant with carry-on size regulations, meaning you can take your drone as hand luggage on flights and play with it in other countries (though be sure to check the regulations first!).

Though it’s designed to fit a DJI Phantom 1, 2, 3 or 4, it’ll also handle a 3DR Solo, Ghost Aerial Plus or Blade 350 QX3 Plus drone with the blades off. You’ll also be able to carry a laptop or tablet up to 17” in length – useful for on-the-go editing.

It’s also made from a durable, water-repellent coating, meaning you can venture out in rough weather and be sure your gear isn’t going to come to harm.
