In the third entry of our Phantom 4 In Depth series, we’re focusing on the equipment you need to get your aircraft from A to B in one piece. It’s important to properly secure your drone during transit and Heliguy are here to show you the best cases and backpacks for the job.
In order to get the most out of your Phantom 4, odds are you’re going to need to transport it from time to time. This requires a case that will not only house your aircraft securely but also provide room for all the necessary peripherals. While DJI’s most recent quadcopter does come with its own Styrofoam carry case out of the box, it’s not really designed for anything more strenuous than a walk to and from your car.
For those who are always on the move and need something a bit sturdier to meet their needs, here are the top three Phantom 4 cases and backpacks available through Heliguy.
